Oh, blessed Advent time, when a person has such experiences! By preparing a way for the Lord, he has become a poor sinner and the gates of his heart stand open for the Lord to enter in grace. He embraces the Gospel, which is rich in comfort for sinners, and then, with inner longing, he welcomes the joyful Christmas celebration.—C. F. W. Walther, God Grant It!, p. 50.
