In my post about National Bible Week, I mentioned briefly that I have signed up for a four-week Advent Bible study: Christmas Incarnation. The study starts this week, and I thought some of you might be interested.
We get so busy during the “holiday season” that sometimes the real meaning of Christmas gets lost or at least blurred. Churches that follow a seasonal liturgy set aside the four weeks leading up to Christmas as a time of preparation for the coming of Christ, with lessons and prayers designed to make us ready for His coming.
If you are a Christian, whether or not you attend a liturgical church, Advent is a good time to spend time in God’s Word. I would love to participate in activities at my own church, but since it’s physically difficult for me to get out, I’m thankful for the opportunity to study on the Internet. If you’re looking for an online study, I recommend the free JesusWalk Bible Study Series. If you sign up now, you can get all the lessons in the Advent series.
Advent begins on Sunday, December 2. May God richly bless you during the holy season.
Added 11/30/07: Christian author Christine Duncan has an Advent calendar on her Web site that links to a Scripture (a prophecy about the coming of Christ) for every day of Advent.
