Christ in Us at Advent

Advent is not a time to pretend that Jesus has not yet come.  It is a time to prepare for and in celebration – as we do at this Table.  In the Lord’s Supper there is no denying that Jesus came and that His body was broken and His blood shed – for us.

And so, as we go about our Christmas preparations, reflections, and celebrations, this is the center – this Table.  It is our participation in Christ, it is our union and communion with Him.  God took on flesh and blood and dwelt with men.  To come here with faith and partake is to celebrate Advent, and Christmas, and Good Friday, and Resurrection Sunday.  It is to celebrate Christ in us, the hope of glory.
