Old Testament Lesson: Isaiah 11:1-10 (Isaiah paints picture of the peace the Messiah would bring)
Gospel Lesson: Matthew 3:1-12 (Produce fruit in keeping with repentance)
The season of Advent is a time of preparing – not only to celebrate the birth of Jesus, but to be prepared for Jesus to come again on the last day. Last week, Pastor Schlie talked about “improving your Advent” by preparing your heart for Jesus to come again. This week we will consider improving our Advent finding true peace in Jesus. One of the results of sin is anxiety, which has a way of making life difficult. Jesus wants us to live in peace. He wants our souls to be at rest in Him! Improve your Advent, by living in the peace of Jesus!
