Echoes of a Voice


Advent is the four weeks leading up to Christmas, defined by a longing for the coming of King Jesus. We take time to remember how hundreds of generations of people waited for Jesus’ first coming as a baby, while also observing our own longing for the ultimate return of King Jesus. In both cases, we see that everything is not as it should be, and there is only one person who can set it right—Jesus. Here’s what The Worship Sourcebook says about Advent:

The great proclamation “The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us” (John 1:14) assures us that God has entered into human history through the incarnation of the Son. The season of Advent, a season of waiting, is designed to cultivate our awareness of God’s actions—past, present, and future... In Advent we heighten our anticipation for the ultimate fulfillment of all Old Testament promises, when the wolf will lie down with the lamb, death will be swallowed up, and every tear will be wiped away. In this way Advent highlights for us the larger story of God’s redemptive plan.
