First Sunday in Advent
Jesus says, "Surely I am coming soon." (Revelation 22:20)
Come, Lord Jesus! Amen.
Advent means "to come." As we prepare to celebrate Jesus' birthday this Christmas, we also remember His promise to come again to earth. We trust that on that day, Jesus will take all who believe in Him as Savior and King to live with Him in heaven in perfect joy and peace. Until then, we can "live the Last Day faith today" knowing that our good God keeps all His promises.
Does your family have and use an Advent calendar to count down the days until Jesus' birthday? Check them out at one of my favorite shopping places: Bronner's in Frankenmuth, Michigan.
Here's a resourceful Christian site if you're looking for Advent and Christmas interactive activities for your family--or for gift giving for all ages--Christian Tools of Affirmation.
Blessed Advent season as you get ready to celebrate Jesus' first coming as Baby and as you prepare your heart for His second coming too!
