Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Isaiah 9 6 says for to us a child is born to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders, and he will be called wonderful counselor. Mighty God, everlasting father. Prince of peace. Advent is a time of year celebrated in the preparation for Jesus's birth. It is the last four Sundays which lead to December 25th. As a four part series, we will pray through the meaning of each candle as we prepare our own hearts for Christmas. Actual advent goes from Sunday, November 27th, through December 24th this year. For more information about advent, you can visit Christianity dot com. Justin holcomb shares this. The more common advent candle tradition. However involves four candles, and new candle is lit on each of the four Sundays before Christmas. Each candle represents something different. Although traditions vary, the four candles traditionally represent hope, faith, joy and peace. Today, as we pray through the first candle hope, may we be reminded of the fulfilled promise of Jesus as the messiah, long awaited by the people's God, let's pray. Our great messiah thank you for being the fulfillment of the promise of eternal life to come. Thank you, that you came down to this earth to die for our sins. Jesus, please help us to reflect on your faithfulness through and through. You give hope to this dark world and you show us how to live with eternal perspective. Help us today in this week not to live with worldly eyes, but to see through spiritual eyes and know that you are over all and working everything out according to your purposes. God, you humbled yourself to come here and live the life that I could not live. Thank you for standing in my place and taking away my sins. Help me not to go a day without being thankful for that. Lord I confess areas in my life where I feel hopeless or doubtful for you to work. Would you please remind me that just as you have worked in the past throughout the Bible that you are still working today? Remind me that the hope that comes from you does not disappoint. Help me feel confident to trust in the one who never fails. Lord, you say in Romans 5 for 5 and hope does not disappoint us because God has poured out his love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit. Whom
