Midweek Message, November 28, 2018

This coming Sunday we begin the season of Advent. Advent is a season of waiting, expecting, and hoping. Beginning four Sundays prior to Christmas and ending on Christmas Eve, Advent helps us prepare for the coming, or “advent” of the Christ child at Christmas. (The word “advent” comes from the Latin word that means “coming.” In this Advent season, I will be preaching on the theme of God’s promise of better days for our lives. That is the hope of Advent and Christmas: God has done something in Christ that changes everything. For this Advent we will be looking at Old Testament Scriptures that don’t immediately strike us as relating to Advent season or the Christmas story. The connection, however, is this idea of God’s promises of better days, promises that all eventually find their fulfillment in the coming of Jesus Christ. This Sunday, we look at a promise for better days recorded in the Old Testament book of Jeremiah. I hope to see you in church!
