The Spirit of Christmas | Peace
This is the second Sunday of Advent. Advent is a season observed by Christians as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus. It is also a time to look forward to the return of Jesus at the second coming. Many people light advent candles which remind us that Jesus came to bring hope and joy and peace and love to the world.
This morning we continue our Advent sermon series entitled The Spirit of Christmas. We will focus on the role that the Holy Spirit plays in bringing peace to the world. In John 14, Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit as One who would bring peace to those who follow Him. This is His promise to each and every one of us. This is also our prayer for you this Christmas season, that you would experience the peace of God that surpasses all understanding.
