Christmas at Chesapeake
Scripture References: Matthew 2:1-12
From Series: "Christmas Sermon"
As we near Christmas, we occupy now a season of prayer and repentance in hopeful anticipation of the return of Jesus. Just as the Old Testament saints waited in darkness for the coming of the Messiah and God’s promised redemption (Isaiah 9:2; Matthew 4:16), we now await His second coming, His glorious entry into the world again, His adventus, or advent. Thus, in this season while we remember the first coming of Jesus, we celebrate and look forward to His second coming.
