Advent is for adoring Jesus. Advent is a season of patiently waiting, hopeful expectation, soul-searching and calendar-watching (not that we need time to go any faster). Each year, churches around the world celebrate this season of waiting, beginning four Sundays before Christmas and ending on Christmas Eve. Advent helps us prepare for the coming of Christ…kind of like an extended birthday celebration.
There isn’t really a set standard of topics to follow during the season of Advent. It’s a season of waiting and it’s while we wait that we think of the things of Christ and the events that led up to his birth.
This year, these writings and ponderings will focus on waiting, joy, peace, love and the reason Christ came: to fulfill God’s law and to make all things new.
**Note: I’m not an expert. These writings are based on the nuggets of truth God has opened my eyes to in His Word and how it applies or affects my own life.
