Hey there! It’s Stacy Lowe, back here to officially welcome you to Week 5!
Today is exciting, because it marks a turning point in our study. So far, we’ve been in the Old Testament, but now, we begin the New. Not only that — we get to kick it off with one of my favorite Bible stories: the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
This Week’s Longing:
Back in the Old Testament, God had been active and involved with His people, but then came 400 years of silence. Can you imagine? Four hundred years where it seemed God had abandoned His creation.
Make no mistake about it, though. He may have been silent, but He had not walked away. In fact He was working hard behind the scenes, preparing the way for our coming Savior.
This Savior, Jesus, would be the ultimate answer to our longing for redemption.
