Today’s Christian Agenda Is…
Romans 13: 8 – 14

With this First Sunday in Advent – the Church’s “New Year’s Day” – we move into a new Church Year. This past Church Year ended with reminders that we live in a temporary world and that the Lord is coming. Our Advent worship for the next four weeks rouses us from spiritual slumber and apathy and prepares us to do two things: 1) to celebrate, once again this Christmas, the greatest gift in our Lord Jesus Christ; and 2) to pursue a God-directed, daily agenda that guides our actions as we await our Lord Jesus coming again to take us home to heaven. May the Holy Spirit, through God’s powerful Word, empower us to put on the wardrobe of Christ – given to us in Baptism – and also to trash our habitual, sin-stained behavioral wardrobe which keeps us from putting God’s love into action.
