Advent comes from the Latin word adventus meaning arrival or coming. The Hebrews looked forward to the coming Savior or Messiah–the First Advent. Now, we are waiting expectantly for His return–the Second Advent. Each week we will be providing a Reading Plan and Family Advent Activity. Whether individually or with others, our hope is that this will provide a focused time of reflection that will make the Christmas season. As you read through the daily verse(s), we encourage you to use the simple reflect model listed below:
Scripture - Use the provided verse(s) of the day.
Observation - What does the verse(s) say?
Application - What does this mean for today?
Prayer - How can I ask for God to help this be true?
