Advent simply means the arrival or coming of something. As we begin the Christmas season let us be expecting the arrival of Jesus Christ! No doubt Jesus came to earth over 2000 years ago. Luke 2 recounts this wonderful entrance of baby Jesus who lived on earth for 33 years before dying on a cross for OUR sins. Jesus is coming to earth again! We find in Revelation 1:7 that He is coming again!
He came and He is coming! This is great new BUT He COMES! Each and every day in our lives we should be expecting Jesus Christ to come in our lives. He comes with His love, peace and joy. He comes through the smiles and laughter of those we love. He comes by providing and protecting us. There are so many ways He comes every day in our lives.
As we begin the journey to Christmas, the Advent, let us ponder and proclaim the ways we are anticipating Jesus Christ coming into our lives this wonderful Christmas season.
