Welcome to Advent 2017, a season to “watch”, a season to place your hope more fully in the salvation that God alone brings. Isaiah prophesied about the coming of the Messiah, but it would be another 700 years before God’s people welcomed the arrival of the Son of God. During those long centuries, the people of God were “watching” and “waiting” for their coming King. Christians today are no different, we too are a people called to watch, to hope for the second advent (lit. “arrival”) of King Jesus who will one day wipe away every tear, who will do away with sickness, who will defeat death forever and who will make all things new. This is the Christian hope, until then we “watch”. I’m looking forward to this season with all of you at Harvest Community Church. - Pastor Caleb
