Advent means coming. Christ has come and is coming again. Advent is a season when we focus our hearts and minds on his coming. As we anticipate celebrating his coming as a baby at Christmas, we also anticipate his coming again in glory.
During the four weeks leading up to Christmas, we will preach through John 1:1-18. This gives us a unique view of Christmas from behind the scenes.
Each week there are two devotional readings for you and your family. They will serve to focus your heart and thoughts on the coming of Christ – his coming as a baby in Bethlehem and his coming again in glory. Each reading is followed by a prompt for prayer.
We encourage you to read these with your family as a part of your family worship time, or you could gather with a group of friends to pray together and focus on what Christmas truly means – celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
