Historically, the church has prepared for the celebration of Christ’s birth (which according to our calendar we celebrate on December 25th) with a season called Advent. This season begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day and concentrates on one notable characteristic accompanying Christ’s birth that make His Advent Yours (and mine), and leading up to the morning of His birth. Therefore, I will be posting a devotional thought each week relating to these Advent themes. My goal will be to complete this year’s Advent season on Christmas Morning with a post about Christ Himself and the gift that He is for us. You may want to consider listening to the sermon series AdventYours which I am preaching on Sunday mornings during this season. (Download or listen to the sermons here.)

May the Lord richly bless you this Advent season and make His Advent Yours.
