Sunday - 9:15 AM Sunday School, 10:30 AM Worship Service
by: Denise Robinson
"We look at this Son (Jesus Christ) and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God’s original purpose in everything created. For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels—everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment." (Colossians 1:15-17).
My thoughts this morning turn to Advent. It begins this Sunday and runs to Christmas. I didn't grow up in a church that celebrated, or even spoke of, Advent. But over the years I've come to appreciate this time of year and its focus on what Jesus shows us about God. We can learn something of God through Creation and the Bible, but most of what we can know about God comes through Jesus.
"God with us" is one of the names for Jesus. Advent invites us to think about what it might be like for us if Jesus had not come and we were still waiting for our Messiah ... but it's much more than that. Advent reminds us that Jesus promised he would come again, and that is something we still wait for. Advent is the true promise of Christmas ... something to ponder as we enter into a busy time of decorating our homes, buying gifts for others, and running from one thing to another.
