Advent: It is a time of expectation and waiting. A time of preparation for an expected arrival, a coming, that god’s people needed, but didn’t know how to prepare for. 2000 years ago it was difficult to get ready for this coming, and today sometimes seems even harder! The season is full of Finals and tests, Christmas card pictures and parades, lists and tasks that are more distractions than responsibilities. 

Our hope in these brief daily devotionals is that you (and maybe even your whole family) will take a few focused moments each day to prepare for the coming arrival of our King!
