Our Savior was born on December 24th, so there are only four weeks until Christmas … and the fantastic pace to prepare for the festive season has begun.
Christmas is a time we celebrate using cake, cards, gifts, decorated trees, a holiday and particular food and is a period when families and friends gather together to share love, joy and hopefully calmness.
But what of the weeks before this day that is particular? How will we prepare for this amazing time http://www.christianpost.com/ of the year?
Often we find that we’re so active with all of the groundwork that the actual meaning of the celebration only disappears among the chaotic shopping, decorating and never-ending Christmas gatherings and parties.
In the Christian calendar, next Sunday is the first of four Sundays of Advent, a word that means getting ready for an occasion.Additionally it is the word from which our English word adventure is derived, meaning to take on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_News_(Christianity) experience or a venture in life.
The four weeks of Advent are a time when Christians not only prepare for the arrival of Jesus Christ, that is the real and authentic significance for Christmas, but additionally prepare for His coming again at a period when God ordains to bring this world to its end and judgment for the individuals.I expect and pray that we shall be receiving ready for the arrival of Jesus, as we journey together in these next weeks.
Take an adventure this Advent that will bring us to a Christmas that’s filled with expectation, refreshment, peace and love
