“Welcome to Advent!”
Matthew 21: 5: “Say to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your King is coming to you, gentle, and mounted on a donkey, even on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.‘” Advent is about the Second Coming of Christ, and about the Kingdom of God, which are inseparable. Central to the understanding of God’s Kingdom is the fact that it is way different from that of man; poles apart. No earthly king would lower Himself to ride a donkey’s colt as Jesus did, but in the Kingdom of God humility is an ultimate virtue. Advent lesson #1!
