- Come, Lord Jesus!.
Advent reminds us each year of just who Jesus is and why we needed him to come to us, how we were lost in our sins and unable to save ourselves. We are reminded of the prophecies that foretold His birth and sacrifice for our forgiveness. It truly prepares us to celebrate His birth with our eyes and hearts and minds wide open to the wonderful life-giving miracle of God becoming man. But Advent is about more than just pre-Christmas preparation, because during Advent we recognize that Christmas is only one of three ways that Jesus comes to us. There are actually three Advents:.
And it can do so in ways that no special sale in-store or online , holiday special sentimental or funny , or holiday party family or office can do. So have a Happy Advent — and a joyous Christmas — too!
O Come, Emmanuel | Sermon Archives
May the Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you, the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. There are actually three Advents: Advent 1 — Christmas, the birth of Jesus of Nazareth when the eternal Son of God took on flesh and became one of us. This Incarnation was essential for Jesus to become our sacrifice on the Cross.

Advent 2 — the Parousia, a fancy church-word for the Return of Christ, when he comes in power and great glory to judge the living and the dead and to gather His people to be with him. Advent 3 — our Conversion, when we are born again through water and the word, receiving Jesus Christ and His Spirit when we believe and are baptized. Later, as the song builds in both tempo and intensity, we are reminded that our journeys do eventually end.
The score evokes the mystery, uncertainty and drama of growing up during this time. Christ comes for each of us and calls us out of both our spiritual indifference and lifelessness.
With its bouncy tempo and lively character, this could be described as the most joyful song on this playlist, but despite its character, it is still a song of Advent. Humans, plants, birds, stars and the angels are all encouraged to be on alert and to perform their God-given roles to the best of their abilities. This arrangement must be experienced!
This particular version of the 4Him piano ballad has the country-pop vibe that Rascal Flatts is known for, without losing too much of the character of the original. Did you enjoy this article?
