,,If I knew, that tomorrow will be the last day of the world, I would still plant a tree“, – Such words once said the father of reformation Martin Luther.
Such attitude doesn’t cause neither hysteria nor fear about the future, as it states, it is more perfect than the presence. Still, the reminder of the Last Judgement day encourages to re-evaulate the values, make a decission and take a wise action. Jesus Christ in multiple comparisons said The Gospel about the New World as already existing and yet coming Reality.
How about my life? What is my reality? Do I ever just stop for a moment and think that this presesence is the Hope, in which lies the the future of all mankind? What is my input in it? Am I conscious enough to admit that I consume too much, work too much, rush too much? And too little pray, repent, forgive?
Revelation 3:20, NIV: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”
Let‘ s be on duty. Coming Lord is yearning to come in our hearts, in our lives. How can we acknowledge him coming if we are rushing, arguing, constantly consuming? There is so much pain around, world is tired…

Walking the humble journey of Advent with open hearts and hands, more prayer, repent and novenas, we are getting ready for a miracle – the Birth of The Baby Christ in our hearts.
Oh, come Lord, I open my heart for You!
