In John 17:1-16 is recorded a prayer spoken by Jesus. The ESV titles this section of Scripture “The High Priestly Prayer.” In it, we see the deep desire Christ has for His people: to be one as the Son and Father are one, to be fulfilled in Christ’s joy, to keep us from the evil one, that we may be sanctified in the truth, and that the love of God may be in us.
It is with this in mind I approach the Advent Season. Christ came to earth to give us a gift. The gift is that we would be able to be completely satisfied in savouring Christ. To savour something is to enjoy it completely. May that be the case with us this Christmas Season!
