A Message from Pastor Josh Cortez

       This past week we started a new series for the Advent season. The word advent simply means to wait expectingly. Throughout the Old Testament, God’s people anticipated the coming messiah. They had learned to look for the signs and had hope for the promises he would fulfill for their people. Over time because of suffering and oppression, their hearts longed for a warrior king who would bring the justice they sought. When Jesus came as a baby born in a manger, this was not their picture of a savior.  God’s people had waited and waited for generations and generations, but their hearts were not in the right place so when Christ showed up, they missed Him.

         As we get closer and closer to Christmas, how are you waiting to celebrate the birth of Christ and His return? Does your waiting involve making space to reflect on who Christ is and what his birth means for humanity? Does it involve sharing that story with your family, friends, and neighbors or is it filled with an endless to-do list?

 

            Our waiting is to be centered in Christ. As we wait, we do so intentionally seeking to love God and love our neighbors.

 

             What does your waiting look like this holiday season?
