Depending on your church background, you might participate in Advent every year, or you might stay away from it because it seems like a mysterious, age-old tradition that’s reserved for only certain denominations. You might even associate Advent with a candy calendar you see displayed in stores close to the holiday season.
At Proverbs 31 Ministries, our goal is to help you know the Truth of God’s Word by shedding light on things that might be a little unclear … even things like the Advent season. While Advent is not a biblical command, it is an activity we can choose to participate in to turn our hearts from the hustle and bustle as we focus on biblical truths.
In this episode, you’ll hear from Proverbs 31 Ministries' director of theology, Joel Muddamalle. You will…
- Discover what Advent is, what it isn’t and how it can help align your heart with God’s Word as we celebrate Christmas and Jesus’ second coming.
- Stop rushing through the holiday season and refocus your mind on adoration for Jesus through patience, expectations for what He’s doing and contemplation on His goodness.
- Understand the importance of setting aside time to share with your family about who Jesus is and what He has done, and what He has promised to come back and do.
No matter your views on Advent, we pray this episode will serve as a resource and a reason to slow down and focus on Jesus this season.
