Advent is a season during which the Christian Church celebrates the coming in flesh of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The glory of Advent finds its genesis in Old Testament prophecies that point forward to the coming incarnation of Christ. The beauty of the gospel is that Abraham was promised a royal seed—and that seed is Christ. However, as the Apostle Paul explains in Galatians 3:29, “If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” What that means is that you are a child who has been adopted, and therefore an heir of the riches that God has promised to his people!
We are looking forward to celebrating the Season of Advent (November 28, December 5, December 12, and December 19), by incorporating into our worship services special Liturgies of Light, during which the Advent Candles will be lit.
