Throughout history, the Israelites and Christians have endured the darkness of this world through persecution from governments, wars, plagues, famines, the list goes on and on about the level of darkness in this world.
I mean it’s no different today. We have people in our church family here who have endured six wars in their lifetime, the Great Depression, the 80s! Talk about a dark time! From the clothes, to the hair, to the music! Ah man! Thank God we have Bieber today!
But, Advent…hope, peace, joy, love, those aren’t only for the four weeks leading up to Christmas. They impact our everyday life all year long as we, the people of God, look forward to His second coming.
