Brothers and Sisters in Christ of the Untied New Testament Church, International Ministry Association and it’s Fellowships everywhere, greetings and peace to you in the name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It is the beginning of Advent once again and time again to focus on the “Make straight the way of the Lord.” Twice a year we visit this understanding through celebration, worship, scripture, messages, and tradition. The first is ADVENT, which is the preparation to receive the Baby Jesus as the greatest gift from God the Father, that He can do the will of the Father on our behalf from the miracle of life through birth (Christmas). The second is LENT, which is the preparation to receive the Savior, Christ Jesus, that He can fulfill the will of the Father on our behalf from the miracle of life through death (Easter).
In this season of busy tradition, planning, joy, and celebration, during, and even after, let us not forget that these two moments we prepare for each year are only to focus us even more on the Third and Final Season in which we are in perpetually now, each and every day, which is the coming of His Kingdom as the final act of God through Christ the King.
For Christmas this year, let us look to the Baby but focus on the Christ in all His Glory!
