Sunday Reflection...



Today is the first Sunday of Advent.  Advent means the 'arrival' of Jesus to earth as a baby in Bethlehem two thousand years ago.  The four weeks before Christmas are dedicated to honoring His first and second comings.  His first appearance has already transpired, but we await His second coming.

It's easy to become caught up in the commercialization of the Christmas Season with its stress and shopping frenzy, but staying focused on the true meaning gives peace and hope.

"The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel" - which means, "God with us."  Matthew 1:23 NIV

Jesus is the Reason for the Season.
May God bless your week!

  2. I started reading a devotional on Advent yesterday. I can't seem to get enough reminders to focus on the reason for the season, so thank you for this one!
