Advent: The Coming King
Many of us take the same approach to Advent that we take to Lent—it’s an unpleasant season of waiting that we want to get through as quickly as possible. In other words, we want to arrive at the awaiting Christmas celebration. But Advent is a powerful season for believers, a time when we rehearse a common story of God’s people: waiting on him to fulfill his promises and learning to trust him in our waiting. This four-week Advent sermon series will look at four different places of waiting in the story of God’s people. In the process, we’ll consider how to trust God’s promises and work for redemption in our times of waiting.
