Advertising is cleverly planned to stir up discontentment in us, with the promise that three easy payments one little pill will ease our aching hearts. “Advent” on the other hand is the season of celebrating the gift God already gave us when He sent His Son, and looking forward to the return of Christ. It’s a joyful, hopeful outlook. It’s ADVENTising!
KEY TEXT: 2 Peter 3:9 (NLT) The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.
BIG IDEA: Even as the world falls farther away from God, we are SETTING the STAGE for Christ to return.
Before Christ, Isaiah Predicts a Suffering Savior: Isaiah 53
A Glimpse Into the End and a New Beginning: Matthew 24; 2 Peter 3; Revelation 20-22
There was a technical issue with the recording this week. Around the 11:00 minute mark, the audio quality will change.
