The death of Adam didn’t happen for almost a thousand years. Does that seem odd? Imagine if a criminal was condemned to die, but was then placed on death row for almost a thousand years. Do you think Adam ever wondered if God would ever keep his promise? Am I really going to die?
He is coming! The first Sunday in Advent marks the beginning of four Sundays of preparation as we get ready to celebrate the birth of our Savior. How can we prepare ourselves? Some of us decorate our homes. This can be a fitting outward expression the inward preparations we make in our hearts. This Sunday we’ll explore what those preparations might be. Join us!
There are plenty of scary events that come into our lives. Mary the mother of Jesus knows the feeling too. Not only was she terrified at the sight of an angel, the news the angel gave her would change her life forever. This Advent season God doesn’t want us quaking in our boots. He comes as the prince of peace for our lives. Want to find that peace? Watch!
The herald of the King cries out for us to repent and turn from our sins. On this second Sunday of our season of Christmas preparation, we consider our lives and how they live up to God’s demands. What will be your Advent confession?
