It's the most wonderful time of the year! But let's be honest—2020 has been one of the most difficult years in recent memory. There has just been so much turmoil and uncertainty. It is likely that many of you are having a hard time getting into the holiday spirit.
If you feel that way, let us encourage you by saying that Advent and Christmas are about so much more than putting on a happy face, even when you do not feel much like smiling. Rather, Advent and Christmas are seasons during which Christians look forward to the second Advent of Christ at the end of human history, as well as his first Advent in Bethlehem.
Why is this the most wonderful time of the year? Because it is a season during we we remember that even though we are fallen and alienated from God, God sent His only Son to enter into the world to redeem and unite us to Himself. Because it is a season during which we remember that even though our world is in shambles and out of sorts, Jesus will return at some point in the future to restore all things. And—because of these two different, yet connected historical events—we are able to live our lives with abiding joy, peace, hope and love. You can learn more by checking out our 2020 Advent Devotional.
