The word “Advent” means “coming.” Something is coming… SomeOne is coming…and with Him, comes hope. In this time of preparation for our celebration of Christ’s first advent, and in our longing for His coming again, God again and again fills our lives with His version of hope—a certainty and expectation rooted in God’s Word and His faithfulness. Lives filled with hope in Christ reach other lives so they, too, can experience the renewal and hope found only in Jesus, our coming Savior and King.
