“Adventure in Faith: Hope” The First Sunday of Advent Advent Theme: Christ Before Christmas Adventurous Praise Sermon Synopsis: Today we begin the season of Advent. For centuries, the church has set aside this time for believers to prepare their hearts for the coming of the Son of God. “Advent” of course refers to Jesus, the Son of God, coming to dwell on earth. Today, believers should use the four Sundays of “Advent” to prepare their hearts for Christ’s coming. It does not mark the number of shopping days until Christmas. The four Sundays of the Advent Season should be an “Adventure in Faith.” 1 Our Adventurous Hope abounds in Anticipation. 2 Our Adventurous Joy resonates in Praise. 3 Our Adventurous Peace feeds our Courage. 4 Our Adventurous Love reaches out to all. My sermons for our Adventure in Faith will center around the theme Christ Before Christmas. The aim of my presentations will be to show Christ before, above and beyond the Christmas celebrations. I will present Old Testament prophecies that portray the hope of Christ that is not often the focus of our popular culture. I will present the New Testament stories of events leading up to the birth that will examine the world before Jesus was born. Finally, I will present ways Christ can live in our experiences after the Christmas lights are gone. Remember, the name that is above every name is Jesus. (Philippians 2:9, NIV) Our Adventure in Faith will seek to raise His name above all others. Scripture: Isaiah 64:1-9; Mark 13:24-37; 1 Corinthians 1:3-9, NIV
