Advent: a season of preparation
The holy season of Advent has begun, where we prepare and we wait for Jesus to come! No doubt, this year will look different than "usual," as we wind up this strange year. Thankfully, our faith is strengthened, even through trials, and our faith grows as we celebrate and anticipate the coming of Christ. Through our Advent sermon series this year, we prepare our hearts just like we prepare our homes because "Company is Coming!" We realize how messy the house is. We put the cleaning crew to work. Then we decorate and deck the halls! We wait for the company to arrive, and finally, we welcome the guests and enjoy the company. Our hearts can be like a messy house, needing to be cleaned up and ready for the arrival of Jesus.
