the Christ was born on December the twenty-fourth, so there are four weeks until Christmas … and the tremendous rate to get ready for the festive season has started.
Christmas is a time we celebrate with cake, cards, gifts, decorated trees, a holiday and unique food and is a time when families and friends gather together to share love, delight and hopefully serenity.
But what of the http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/story-of-jesus-christ-was-fabricated-to-pacify-the-poor-claims-controversial-biblical-scholar-8870879.html weeks before this exceptional day? How will we prepare for this wonderful time of the year?
Often we find that we’re so busy with the groundwork that the real meaning of the celebration just evaporates among the chaotic shopping, decorating and never-ending parties and Christmas functions.
Additionally it is the word from which our English word adventure is derived, meaning https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_News_(Christianity) to undertake a venture or experience in life.
As we journey together in these next weeks I trust and pray that we will be becoming prepared for the arrival of Jesus.
We are able to send cards, give gifts http://www.christianheadlines.com/topics/jesus/ and share meals together that speak of our love for family, neighbours and friends, and take some time out to consider God’s tremendous love for you and me in the greatest gift that anyone could give – Himself, in the type of a tiny baby who grew in both body and spirit to become our Lord and Saviour offering to us eternal life. Take an adventure this Advent that can bring us all to a Christmas that is filled with expectation, refreshment, serenity and love in Christ Jesus
