A Christian’s Guide to Preparing for Advent

Already, but not yet

Advent is a season of looking back and leaning into the future.

1 John 2:28
John 1:12

Four Ways To Prepare For Advent

  1. Know the reason for the season (1 John 2:29, 1 John 4:7-8)
  2. Know God’s love (1 John 3:1, John 3:16, Romans 8:38-39)
  3. Keep your eyes on Jesus (1 John 3:2)
  4. Purify yourself (1 John 3:3)

For every look at self—take ten looks at Christ!

–Robert Murray McCheyne

“The often unseen and unsung ways we spend our time are what forms us. Our
mundane moments, rooted in the communal practices of the church, shape us
through habit and repetition, moment by passing moment, into people who
spend their days and therefore their lives marked by the love of God.
