Idylls of the King

For some this season of joy is more like a season of dread, loneliness, and doubt. But the season of advent reminds us that our joy in Christ is not tied to our circumstances, but rather to His promises and the coming of His Kingdom.

Scripture References: Matthew 11:2-15

From Series: "Advent"

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.
