The word Advent speaks of “the arrival” of the Savior, but the story of the Christmas season doesn’t end there. As we live between the first arrival and the second coming of Christ, how shall we respond to the good news? Jesus came to serve the hurting and to save the lost; our response to the celebration of Christ’s birth should be to do the same. We are called to join Christ in that hope-filled mission.


Luke 4:18-19; 19:10
