Advent (arrival or coming) gives us hope. Looking forward to something fills our hearts with a great deal of desire, especially if what we are waiting for has the power to change our lives. And yes, there are many things that fit that bill, but nothing more life-changing than the birth of a baby.
This timeless truth is revealed through Isaiah the prophet. Though the Gospels carry the weight of the Christmas story, Isaiah prophesied about the arrival of the Christ child. Advent is not about tinsel, shopping or presents. It’s not about the gifts under the Christmas tree. Advent is about the promised arrival of the Gift that keeps on giving now and throughout eternity! So, in your heart of hearts have you embraced His arrival?
Come and join us this Sunday morning, November 28, at 8:45 or 11:00 as we focus on God’s Word and reflect upon a message entitled “The Awakening of Advent” (Isaiah 8:11, 13-14; 9:2, 6). We look forward to seeing you at MCBC!
