The Advent of Jesus Christ
The world is not as it should be, but we have hope. This is the spirit of advent. Advent means “coming”, and in this season we remember that once upon a time Israel longed for their messiah and he came, the messiah came, Jesus Christ. Born of a virgin, he lived a sinless life, showed us the father, and died on the cross for our sins. And just as Israel was right in their time of exile to have hope, so are we – for Christ will return again. With broken and joyful hearts, we expect the advent of Jesus Christ.
