First Sunday in Advent


Reading:. Jeremiah 33:14-16
Psalm 25:1-10
1 Thessalonians 3:9-13
Luke 21:25-36

To do a little history for those who don’t know Advent is the first season of the Christian year. The first Sunday of Advent is basically New Year’s day of the Christian year. Advent is a twofold season in that it looks forward to the coming of Christ as regards to his Second Coming. And looks forward to the Christmas season, which begins after Advent ends.

So Advent looks towards the time that Christ was incarnate and the time he comes back.

The first Sunday deals with hope and the various reading reminds u of that hope. The hope of Israel for the promised Messiah, and the hope of Christians for the return of Christ. As their hope was fulfilled in the birth of the Messiah, so to will our hope be fully when Christ returns.

Looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, Titus 2:13

Is your hope focused on the blessed hope? Take some time this week and think what it means to hope for Christ’s return.
