The Coming of the King

Cru's 2020 Advent Devotional

 

 

A King is Coming


2020 has been quite a year.

With a global pandemic, natural disasters and sociopolitical tension came weariness and a widespread longing for relief.

What many don’t realize is that this is what Advent is about — the waiting, the longing, the hope that something better is on its way. It’s about God promising and fulfilling His promises of a better world, a new kingdom and a perfect King.

More than 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ was born into humble circumstances. He lived a perfect life and laid down that life as a sacrifice so that all who believe in Him will have access to God’s coming kingdom. So that you can be His.  

And then He rose to life again and returned to His heavenly throne. 

This was a fulfillment of a promise God had been making for centuries, and it was followed by a second, even more wonderful, promise: Jesus will come back again and make all things right and new.

This season, we remember the true meaning of Advent: the great joy God has promised for those who hope in Him. 

Join us, beginning November 29, as we study God’s Word and prepare to celebrate Jesus’ birth on Christmas Day, knowing a greater celebration is yet to come.
