We’re excited for Christmas to come, but Christmas is nothing new. In fact, the promise of Christmas is one of the oldest things in existence. Long ago, God first gave the promise of Christmas to the original two humans, Adam and Eve. It was a promise that a baby was coming to restore God and his people and bring deliverance to the world. Ever since God gave Adam and Eve the Christmas promise of a Savior, God’s people have placed thier trust in that promise and waited.
During Advent, God’s people are gathering at Bethany’s Parkway Campus every Wednesday to fix our hearts on the gospel of Christmas. We stand next to God’s people in the Old Testament as we look forward to God keeping his promise to send a Savior. And as we fix our hearts on the gospel of Christmas, we see how this gift changes our lives.
