Christmas is the annual celebration of the birth of Jesus. But there is no evidence the early church ever celebrated Jesus’ birth. Instead, the early disciples lived in eager anticipation of His second coming. Every time the early church got together, it was with the expectation that today could be the day when Jesus returned. Advent is a season of reflecting on our need for a Savior and how God met that need through the gift of His Son, Jesus. And just as people longed and waited for the arrival of the promised Messiah, so the Church today waits with eager expectancy the day of our Savior’s return. Join us for part four of Arrival as we consider Jesus’ promise to return and what that means for us today.
