Advent Readings

What Is Advent?

Advent comes from the Latin word adventus meaning arrival or coming. The Hebrews looked forward to the coming of a Savior or Messiah—the First Advent. Now, we are waiting expectantly for His return to sweep His bride off of our feet—the Second Advent. The Church has been waiting for Him to come back from the moment He left the first time.

Why Should I Participate in Advent? What does Advent have to do with celebrating the arrival of Jesus?

Traditionally, Advent counts down the four weeks leading up to Christmas. Practically, Advent reminds us to celebrate the coming of Jesus Christ into this world as He was born to the Virgin Mary in Bethlehem more than 2000 years ago. Advent also looks forward to the return of Christ in all glory to consummate His Eternal Kingdom..

This season is about resetting Jesus Christ at the center of our lives. After all, when He returns – we want to be ready.

Expect to be inspired, challenged, refocused, broken, motivated, encouraged, and most of all, expectant.
