Christmas. It comes the same time every year. We have plenty of time to anticipate it. Or, in some cases, dread it. And, before we know it, it’s gone as quickly as it came, leaving us wondering, What’s it all for? Is there really hope for today in the story of a baby born so long ago?
The story of Christmas is one of waiting. It is a story of how the people of Israel waited years and years for the promised Messiah to arrive. But the story of Christmas is also one that reveals how God works during seasons of waiting—times in which he is developing us to carry out his plans in our lives. Louie Giglio leads us through the season of Advent and shows how our waiting is never wasted when we are waiting on God.
