In many ways, to be a follower of Christ is to have a secret. It is to have an understanding that real life is not what the rest of the world expects. To be a Christ follower is to be at least a little counter-cultural. And maybe this is the work of Advent, to get yourself ready not for what you want or for what everyone around you says you should want, but to get yourself ready for what God wants, which is often something very different.
