ADVENT : PREPARE THE WAY
For this season of Advent we will be going through a series called “PREPARE THE WAY”. When Jesus was born, the heavens broke wide open and an army of angels sang: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” In announcing Jesus’ birth, the angels said they were bringing “good news of a great joy that will be for all the people.” Since the fourth century, the church has used the season of Advent as a time to celebrate that “good news of great joy.” The celebration of Advent (which means “coming” or “arrival”) helps us focus our attention on Jesus Christ’s birth and ministry as well as his promised return Advent starts the fourth Sunday before Christmas and ends on Christmas Eve. Celebrating Advent helps us cut through all the distractions of the Christmas season and focus our attention on Jesus Christ’s birth and ministry as well as his promised return. Since we can’t anticipate the day or the hour of Christ’s return, we are filled with both a sense of joyful expectation and humble reverence, with our spiritual focus being on lives of prayer and preparation. Throughout this series we will we will be constantly reminded that Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah and Saviour of the World.
