As we prepare for Christmas and Jesus’ first coming to earth in the flesh, we’re looking at some Bible passages that help get our hearts ready for His arrival.
When the angel Gabriel came to Mary to tell her that she would give birth to the Son of God, there were a lot of possible responses she could have given. But the answer that Mary gave was the right answer!
Everyone’s joyful at Christmas, right? For some, this can be an especially difficult time of the year. But the real joy of Christmas gives a new perspective to those things that zap our joy.
When Jesus came, God sent a messenger before Him to prepare the way – John the baptist. Today, Jesus is coming back and the way still needs to be prepared. God is sending a messenger today, and that messenger is YOU!
We’re not very good at waiting, especially when it’s for a long, undetermined amount of time. Jesus promised to return, but didn’t say when. We’re only instructed to be ready when He arrives.
