Ep. 81 - Advent - Creation

Update: 2019-11-28


For Advent this year we decided to walk through the metanarrative of scripture; creation, fall, redemption, and restoration. We are excited to spend some time looking at how each part points to Christmas and what it means practically as we anticipate and celebrate the birth of Jesus. On episode 81 of the Adorned Podcast we discuss creation. The Son did not just suddenly appear at His incarnation, but has always been. We see this through the trinitarian language used way back in Genesis! We would love for you to listen in as we discuss what this means for us during the Christmas season.


“Advent is traditionally the four Sundays leading up to Christmas and means “coming.””

“How cool is it that God sent His Son, The Light of the World, in the darkest time of the year and we have that to celebrate.”

“We have to believe that God will be faithful to bring to completion what He has promised.”

“We can live with the expectation that God will do what He said He’s going to do.”

“Advent is not about doing a specific thing, but it’s about the hope and the waiting in this season and knowing that God will do what He said He’s going to do through the work of Jesus.”

“The Bible provides us with the basic story that we need in order to understand our world and to live in it as God’s people” -The Drama of Scripture

“Heresy is destructive, not just for your mind, but for your life.” -J.T. English

“Christmas is not God's second plan. Before he created the world, God determined to save sinners through the blood of his own Son. The grand narrative of the Bible points to this essential truth -- God determined to bring glory to himself through the salvation of a people redeemed and purchased by his own Son, the Christ. Bethlehem and Calvary were essential parts of God's plan from the beginning, before the cosmos was brought into being as the Son obeyed the will of the Father in creation.” -Al Mohler
