What is Advent?
The word “advent” means “coming.” This season focuses us upon the birth of Jesus as the Christ (his first advent) and his return as King (his second advent). During this season we emphasize God’s just judgment on sin and His faithfulness in sending His Son to give us eternal life. There is a spirit of longing, preparation, anticipation and joy. Our prayer is for all to experience the fullness of the Advent season and enrich our relationship with God and one another.
We invite everyone to use these weekly devotionals throughout the season of Advent. May they guide and stregnthen your faith as you seek Christ.
This Advent series explores more fully the first and second coming of Christ through the gospel of Luke.
