Time for a Change

It's not the passage you would expect during this Advent season...
"When crowds of people came out for baptism because it was the popular thing to do, John exploded: “Brood of snakes! What do you think you’re doing slithering down here to the river? Do you think a little water on your snakeskins is going to deflect God’s judgment? It’s your life that must change, not your skin." 

Harsh words on first read, and yet a reminder for us all. If Christmas is just a time of feel-good stories, bows and trees and happy  traditions, then WE are the ones not keeping the Christ in Christmas. For Advent is a time to reflect on our own lives, and our own faith. Are we really living it? or just following the "popular thing?"
