Hello, friend! Christmas time is almost here!! When I think of Christmas, I think of a very special guest coming to my house... or the arrival of a baby! Having three kids, I know the excitement a newborn baby brings. That same feeling of happiness and anticipation is what I feel at Christmas. Advent means the arrival of a noitable person, event, or thing.
Advent in the church didn't always relate to Christmas. At first, over 1700 years ago when Advent got started, it was actually a celebration of Jesus' baptistm and the celebration of "Epiphany" or when the Magi came to see the child, Jesus... for the new christians, who were being introduced to what it mean to be a true Christian.
Advent later changed it's focus to Jesus coming, again... His second coming. Today, we celebrate Advent four Sundays. Two Sundays about Jesus' birth, death, and ressurection, and two Sundays looking forward to him coming, again. We live in a cool time. It keeps getting closer to Jesus coming again, and we know how he died on the cross and rose again for our sins. Advent is a neat time of reflection and anticipation of Jesus coming again. Enjoy this Christmas, but remember, He is coming!! Let the world know!! We all need to be ready!
Hello, friend! Peace vs. Friction... there seems to be a lot of people rubbing each other the wrong way. Even with Christmas coming up, a lot of people seem to be grumpy and mean to each other. In the Bible there was this stuff called, The Balm of Gilead, which was a medicine they rubbed on wounds, sores, or hurt spots on their bodies. It came from Gilead. Would it surprise you that God is called The Balm of Gilead? Not me, either! Jesus is our Healer and our Peacemaker. In Isaiah 9:6 He is also called The Prince of Peace. The only way we can become peacemakers is to know the Peacemaker, Jesus. Enjoy Christmas! Stop and look at the beauty and wonder. Jesus is the Prince of Peace!
Hello, friend! When Jesus fills us up, He can flow out into more and more people. We all are called to do "missions" right where we are. Nobody can do it alone. Jesus uses us as vessels to pour out into other people, as we are going! Acts 1:8 and Matthew 28:19-20 will help us see how! He takes us on a GREAT ADVENTURE! Enjoy the ride!
