Sweet Sunday Scripture.....

Today many will begin to celebrate Advent.......

 "Advent" simply means coming.......
 as in Christ is coming, 
and for us, now He has arrived. 
This is referring to His birth in history and in humanity.  

The season of Advent begins on the fourth Sunday 
prior to Christmas Day, 
or the Sunday which falls closest to November 30, 
and lasts through Christmas Eve, or December 24

Many Christians celebrate Advent 

     not only by thanking God 
for Christ's first coming to Earth as a baby,

also for his presence among us today 
       through the Holy Spirit, 

and in preparation and anticipation 
of his final coming
at the end of time.

Romans 15:12-13

And again, Isaiah says,
“The Root of Jesse will spring up,

    one who will arise to rule over the nations;
    in him the Gentiles will hope.”
 May the God of hope 
fill you with all joy and peace 
as you trust in him,

 so that you may overflow with hope 
by the power of the Holy Spirit.

May this Christmas season bring you many blessings
But most of all....

May Jesus fill your heart.....


For He has come!!!!
