Description

With the season of Advent upon us, we are focused on the birth of the Christ child. The wee baby Jesus in the manger and the farm animals around him. A golden aurora of light all around. But, is that truly all of the story? It is only the beginning to the greatest story of love ever told. God gave us His son not only as a gift but also a sacrifice. Jesus will grow up and will become our atonement. As Paul tells us in Romans, “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” The true gift of this wonderful season is not the gifts under the Christmas tree but the one gift that we often forget. It is that free gift from God of eternal life through Jesus.
On this first Sunday of Advent, we will be looking at the expectations of the people. What is the Messiah, foretold over 700 years before his birth, going to do? What expectations are we to have?
