First Week of Advent – Sunday Romans 13:11-14

 

Besides this you know what hour it is, how it is full time now for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed;

the night is far gone, the day is at hand. Let us then cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light;

let us conduct ourselves becomingly as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy.

But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.

 

Father in heaven, we know that it is late in the Church age. Help us to renounce this world and put on the Lord Jesus Christ. Let us join St. Paul in saying: “Not I, but Christ who lives in me.” Amen.
