The Missing piece - Advent 2

Our Kids Church did an awesome Nativity play on Sunday. It was based around a story of "the missing piece" of a puzzle. We all try and find the best gifts, toys, food, trees, decorations and even holidays at Christmas time, but we neglect the most important aspect, which is Jesus. He is the missing piece of the puzzle for each one of us.

They sang a song called the "Missing Piece", which has the following words ...

Jesus you’re the one I’ve been waiting for

You’re the missing piece the missing piece

You’re the only one that I’m longing for

You’re the missing piece

The missing piece of my heart

Pre-Chorus two:

All the things that filled my life before

I found You Lord

They all just seem to fade away


You fill the hole

In this desperate soul

Complete with you

You’re the missing piece

We can try and fill our lives with all sorts of things this Advent season, but in the end it will not meet our deepest need. Generations of people have tried to exclude God from their lives and in the end they have still found that something was missing. 

May we turn to Christ this festive season and may He fill the void in our aching hearts.

"Since ancient times
no one has heard,
no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any God besides you
who acts on behalf of those who wait for him." - Isaiah 64:4

Living in Grace
