Advent is the time of year that prepares us for Christmas, the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. It’s a period when we learn to wait, watch, hope and prepare for His coming.
The incarnation of God—the story of God taking on skin and moving into our neighborhood—is the central idea of Christmas for Christians. And it’s not just about the baby in the manger; this season is also about a coming King!
Waiting, patience, and prayer are the hallmarks of the Advent season. We learn to become people who wait for what we know God will do. Advent is a guidebook to that anticipation, a reflective map readying you to receive the best present ever given.
