Sermon Preview

Today is the first Sunday of Advent; a time of reflection on Jesus’ birth and anticipating His second coming. Advent comes from the Latin word adventus, meaning “coming.” This is a key term in the New Testament which was always used to refer to the second coming of Christ, but was also a word used to describe the arrival of royalty. In such instances, the leaders of the city would be preparing for such a guest and go outside the city gates to meet the royal leader and escort him or her back into the city as an honored guest.

This is an interesting way to think of Advent. Advent is not just passing time waiting for Christmas, but rather preparing to greet our King. This season of Advent is a time for both looking back to Jesus’ first coming and looking forward to His second coming in glory.

Rejoicing in His coming,
Pastor Kirk
