Welcome to He is Here Advent Bible Study!!
I cannot wait to share this time with you in Bible Study through the Christmas season.
Advent is more than a tradition created by Christian denominations – it is a season you and I choose to focus on the beauty and power of Christmas and abide deeply with Jesus Christ our wonderful, our counselor, our mighty God, our everlasting Father, our Prince of peace. (Isaiah 9:6)
Our hope rests in Christ, in who He is and what He accomplished on our behalf. He didn’t stay in the manger, just as He didn’t stay on the cross. He is alive, He is present in our lives- His Spirit is working.
Christmas has lost it’s meaning, we have walked away from Christ who makes it Christmas. We make it about the worldly, the unimportant and things that will fade. When we don’t teach our children and families the true meaning of Christmas, we are failing to show them truth.
Christmas is more than a tree and beautiful lights, it is more than shopping and unwrapping presents. Christmas is the season of hope, love and grace.
Advent urges us to abide with Jesus. Our hearts become focused on the eternal, on the truth that drives our everyday lives not just at Christmas.
Where ever you may be right now in your life…maybe your year has left you empty handed and hurting, grieving or hopeful, confused and broken. There is something I can promise…only Christ can bind up those places, He is the only one that can bring healing, He is the only one that will give true grace and mercy.
So will you join us?
