Advent is a time of hopeful waiting. Children are waiting for the excitement of Christmas, but we also want to point them to the anticipation of Jesus. We consider how He came as a baby, and how He promises to return someday in the Second Coming. We don’t know when that will be, but we know it will be wonderful, and meanwhile, we do God’s work on Earth. Great things are worth the wait, and sometimes we can increase patience by doing other things to pass time. In the same way, Jesus is well worth the wait, and while we look forward to His coming, we live in His presence and serve Him in all we do.  

At Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Christ, but sometimes forget the significance of why that’s so important.  Jesus was the fulfillment of God’s promises to His people, the Messiah come to save. The people of God waited in long anticipation, and the birth of Jesus was only the beginning. We rejoice that He came to Earth but know that He came to die. On the other side of the resurrection, we now await His coming again, knowing that God will be faithful to that promise, as well. Since we do not know the time of His return, we rest in His presence and seek to do His will.
