Adventus (Week Three)

Grow December 03, 2015


Week One: Know and Love The One Who Is Coming!


Fellow Disciples:

I’m excited to experience Advent with you this year as we focus on the return of Jesus. This is the true meaning of Advent.

As we learned Sunday, Advent translates the Latin Adventus, which translates the Greek Parousia. The latter term almost always refers to the return of Jesus as described in Revelation 19 and 20.

It’s a glorious hope we have as we consider the increasing mess in the world around us. Buddha or Mohammed are not coming back. Jesus is the only one who has promised to come back for us.

He will set everything right. He will judge every wrong. He will vindicate everyone who truly trusts him. He will fulfill every promise of the Father, fully reveal his glory, fully usher in the Spirit.

We who know and love God will be ready to meet Jesus. We who live for Jesus will be ready for eternity. Let’s pray together for the Spirit’s power to be ready and invite others to the banquet.

Awaiting His return with great hope, Denis
