The focus of the church during the Advent season is Christ’s threefold coming – past, present, and future. First, we remember the Lord’s humble first coming in Bethlehem two thousand years ago. This is what we celebrate on Christmas. Second, we give thanks for His present and continual coming to us through the Word and Sacraments. Finally, we look forward with hope and patience to His victorious second coming as Judge and King at the end of time.
