DAY#1 Jesus is the Bridge Advent Calendar


DAY#1  Jesus is the Bridge Advent Calendar

Welcome to Advent Season 2023!!  Advent is the season that begins the celebration of Jesus' coming to earth.  The word "Advent" is derived from the Latin word "adventus" which means "coming".  During Advent, Christians celebrate the birth of the Messiah Jesus but it is also a time to prepare for the second coming of Christ. 

I have featured a different Advent calendar each year since 2016.  This year we are featuring "Jesus is the Bridge" calendar.  Actually, this calendar does not have a Christian message - however, I have adapted it to show the true meaning of Christmas - The birth of Jesus Christ our Savior!!

Why the bridge you might be asking?  Well, Jesus Christ is the reason why there is no longer any division between us.  In Galatians 3:28 (see picture below) we learn that we are ALL one in Christ.  That means it does NOT matter what color your skin is, nor what gender, it does not matter if you are from Palestine or from Israel and it does NOT matter which way you lean politically speaking.  WE ARE ALL ONE IN CHRIST - Jesus is the bridge that gets rid of all division and separation. 


Today is December 1st and I am opening Box#1


Inside we find:


A scene where a family is decorating for Christmas using fresh cedar/pine roping and carrying in a freshly cut Christmas tree.


Jesus is the bridge over the old - because of Him we have become a new creation!

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.d
2 Corinthians 5:17

Recently we have been doing a series on "Trees" and part#7 was specifically on Pine & Cedar:
