Comment #61
Advent, when “every man that hath this hope in [Christ] purifieth himself, even as he is pure.”
Advent, when faith, “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen,” impels our journey to “where, in cradled obscurity, lay the Bethlehem babe,”
Advent, when “The footsteps of thought, rising above material standpoints, are slow, and portend a long night to the traveller; but the angels of His presence …tell us ‘the night is far spent, the day is at hand’”
Advent, when the angels stoke the fire of our anticipation and expectancy of wholeness such that “when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.”
P1:  “And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.”  I John 3:3.
