Monday Morning Thoughts

Welcome to the Advent Season!  Yesterday we looked at the ministry of John the Baptist and how he pointed the way to the coming Savior of the World, Mark 1:1-8.  In verse 4 it describes the calling of John…  “And so John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.”  It is repentance that prepares the people to receive forgiveness and restoration that comes from Jesus Christ.  The coming of Jesus is so wonderful and so powerful Christians have traditionally gone to great lengths to make this season special.  We decorate, give gifts, hold special worship services, and make parties all because God sent His only Son to be The Savior.  This Advent season, let us remember why we do what we do.  The activities of this season are not busyness, they are worship of our Lord because of what He has done for us!  So when the world wonders why we are doing these things, we’ll just tell them we’re loving our King!  
Blessings my friends,
Pastor Bob
