Advent Upon Us

The season of Advent is that beautiful time of the year when we both anticipate the return of Jesus Christ and count down the days celebrating His birth. While Advent begins the fourth Sunday before Christmas, we often look to the first day of December for our starting point.

Over the next 25 days, we are going to look at Advent from the victorious Christian woman's perspective. How can we separate ourselves and our families from the trappings of Christmas commercialism? What can we do personally to recover the joy of Christmas and experience the miracle of His birth? Stay close and we'll discover the answers together.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17

Instead of opening a door on the Advent calendar to find a gift, let's open the Scripture and find those perfect gifts God has blessed us with. Instead of making a list and checking it twice, why don't we anticipate the precious presents from our Heavenly Father. They can't be wrapped or placed under a tree, but they are life-altering none the less.

There is great excitement during the month of December. Allow your heart to transfer that longing for something new onto a desire for growth in the Lord. We grow in grace every day, and how much more special that growth is during the Christmas season.

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. 2 Peter 3:18

Advent is the perfect time to combine God's Word with our daily living. Let's spend the next four weeks growing, living, worshiping and falling in love with the Lord all over again.
