“Reflecting on Advent”
#2 in Series
“Preparing”

We frequently refer to the Christmas season. We could just as easily refer to the advent season.

As we mentioned previously, advent means “coming” and previously we referred to Christ’s first advent when He came as God incarnate (in the flesh) to seek and save the lost. Advent is a time when we look back to His first coming but we also look forward to the day when He will come again. What a day that will be!

Traditionally, advent begins on the Sunday closest to November 30th. It includes the four Sundays before Christmas and ends on Christmas eve.

“ADVENT … Coming”

Christmas is a wonderful time of year and we have so much to celebrate. We are now in what is commonly referred to as the Advent Season. Many of us are probably enjoying the many Hallmark Christmas movies that always seem to have a happy ending. But what is advent? The word ‘advent’ means “coming” And it centers on the coming of Jesus Christ as a baby in a manger in Bethlehem, but it also has to do with His promised return to earth commonly called, “the second coming”.

A. Christ’s First Advent
The promise of His first advent (coming) is found in Genesis 3:15, “And I will cause hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike your head, and you will strike His heel.”

“Loving Jesus”

There are two commandments given by Christ that should define each of us as Christians.

1. We have first of all the great commandment found in Deuteronomy 6:4-5
“Hear O Israel: The Lord our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.”

This commandment is repeated by our LORD in Mark 12:29-30.
“The first of all the commandments is; “Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one. And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.”

Then Jesus adds this — “This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” There is no other commandment greater than these.”

Dear Jubilee Family,
When one of our members shared this story with me, I asked him to write it up so we could share it with all of you.

I was particularly impressed with his reliance on the LORD and how the Holy Spirit guided him step by step. I think you will enjoy.

“God Has an Exciting Future for You”

Many of you reading this are either retired or getting close to retirement. You might look at the heading for this meditation and say, “O sure, He has an exciting future for me.

Most of my life is over. How could that ever be?”
Well, I want us to take a look at the life of Moses and how God used him. He was miraculously saved at birth. All baby boys were supposed to be put to death, but his mother believed God had a future for her boy so she put him in a basket that had been waterproofed and placed the basket in the reeds near the shore.
