Greetings Faith Family.
The Advent Season has arrived! What a joyous time of year it is. The weather is colder, the leaves have fallen and perhaps in various places on the map snow as well. Along with setting aside time for decorating, shopping, planning menu's and gatherings, may we re- member the "Reason for The Season". The Bible states in the Gospel of Matthew chapter One and verse 23, "Behold a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is God with us".
During this Advent Season may we find ourselves reflecting upon this verse often. Advent is a time when:
Prophecy was fulfilled.
The Provision of our salvation was given.
The Presence of God was manifest.
It will be my prayer for each of you this Advent Season that you experience the presence of God greater than at any previous point in time. What a joyous season this can be when we realize that the promise of Scripture is fulfilled and that God indeed is with us.
Minnie and I hope that each of you have a wonderful Advent Season and a very Merry Christmas. We look forward to serving the Lord with each of you in 2023.
By His Grace and for His Glory,
