The First Sunday of Advent: Hope

We wait in hope for the Lord;

he is our help and our shield.

Psalm 33:20

If you come from a more traditional church background, you probably will be lighting the first candle on the church’s advent wreath.  Today, is the first Sunday of Advent.  Many people around the world will be talking about hope.  We can have amazing hope because of what Jesus did for us on the cross.  We have hope in His second coming.  We have hope of spending eternity with Him in heaven.

As we go through this time of preparing for Christmas, may we be hopeful for what is to come.  May we share the hope we have with a broken world.

What are you hoping for today?

Today, I’m hooking up with The Sunday Community and Fresh Brewed Sundays.  Hop on over here and here to see what I’m talking about.
