Advent 2016

Advent simply means coming, as in Christ is coming.
It meant the welcoming or the arrival of a special king and for us, it is our King of kings.

Advent represents our expectation, anticipation, and preparation for who Christ is and what He has done for us.
He came for us, He came for you, and He comes into our lives and into our hearts.
