Jesus Christ our Savior. His Cross our Message. His Word our Guide.

11-27-16 Preparation – Advent


Advent is a time of spiritual preparation as we anticipate celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. There is a very real sense that all of life is preparation for knowing, loving and serving God for now and all of eternity. Over the course of time, God had been preparing the earth to receive her King. We only know a small portion of His sovereign care and guidance. We look today at only a small portion of that.
