065 From Bethlehem to the Cross: Finishing Advent Well
Release Date: 12/11/2018
The goal of Advent isn’t checking off boxes: I did this devotion, made this sacrifice, did this activity. The goal is becoming like the child Jesus we await at Christmas, who is the Jesus of the Cross.
Edward Sri explores the many Biblical connections between Christmas and the Cross and how those insights can help us finish our Advent well.
A successful Advent is about becoming more like Christ, even in one small way: more patient with our kids, kinder to our spouse, more generous with our friends, more humble with our coworkers.
