As I was thinking about Advent and how God’s people in the Old Testament anticipated the coming of Christ for thousands of years, I was reminded of God’s story, or “HiStory” as it has been said.

In Christ we are part of God’s gracious grand-narrative. From Creation to eternal celebration, God is our benevolent Father who works for our good and His glory, writing our lives into His story.

While there are other words that could fit in the list and fill in the blanks, I had a good time thinking through so many of the “tions” of God’s redemptive history. Each one of these is packed with pages and chapters of the Bible…well….the whole of the Bible, so let’s not proof text today…if that’s alright with you.

Take a minute to reflect and celebrate the first coming of our King and the anticipation for His second Advent!
