The Advent Season - Week 1

Devotional
DM
Danny Mitchell

The Season of Advent - The Scripture readings for Advent this year follow the order in which we will be lighting the Advent candles in our worship services--Hope, Peace, Joy, Love and Christ.  The Advent season, which encompasses the first four Sundays in December, as well as our Christmas Eve service, gives us an opportunity to reflect not only on the coming of Christ through his birth but to anticipate the second coming of Christ as well.  The word “advent” actually comes from the latin word adventus which means “coming”.  So it is appropriate that this time of year in the life of the church is called Advent.  It is also appropriate for us to set aside time each day during Advent to remind ourselves in the study of God’s word that through Jesus we have been granted access to the Father because Jesus came to earth, born of virgin and took on flesh that we might have fellowship with God.  I pray that we all may have a blessed Advent season.
