Today, we will consider the literal and Biblical meaning of Advent, which is “coming” and is all about waiting.  People of God have been waiting since Adam and Eve sinned in the garden.  Waiting is a result of promises made – and hope they will be kept.  Waiting is keeping watch, looking.  Waiting is about being prepared.  Believers are still actively waiting, not for Him to be born and laid in a manger, but for Him to come again and fulfill His Kingdom.
