 Sunday began Advent. Our theme covered that of Hope. I fully believe with all the distress and discouragement many are and have faced since the beginning of 2020, that we need a good dose of Hope. Advent is the expectation of the coming of the Messiah.

 The children of Israel had been taught from their youth, of the coming of a Messiah. And just like many today they missed it when he showed up in the manger or had difficulty believing He had arrived.

 Within the last couple of years many have faced the loss of a loved one and still grieve their passing, even to the point we are trying to navigate our lives to be what others expect us to be. Grief isn’t something that has a time frame; where it begins at the loss and a month or year later you just move on, as many will tell you to do. We have to show them compassion because they just don’t understand unless they have been in your shoes.

 Yet back to the Advent; we as the children of God, those who’ve accepted the Christ child and bear His name, are awaiting another coming. Not just the day we celebrate His birthday, but the day when He will step out on the clouds of glory and call us home!

 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 NKJV:

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
