DAY#22 - Jesus is the Bridge Advent Calendar


DAY#22 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 22nd and I am opening Box22


Inside we find:


St. Nicholas - but as I said before - Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ and nothing else.  This saint may have been respectable but NOBODY should be worshiped besides God.
(You will see in the picture below that I placed a cross over his face to imply that the real reason for celebration is the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ).


I said this in an earlier post but want to reiterate - "santa" or "st. nicholas" is NOT Christmas.  I believe that this childhood story or "harmless fun" is actually harmful.  Even though I was raised with this fairy tale, I really feel that it is deceptive and unnecessary.

Jesus is the Bridge over the fake and counterfeit connecting us to the genuine and authentic.

"The time will come when people will not listen to the truth. They will look for teachers who will tell them only what they want to hear.  They will not listen to the truth. Instead, they will listen to stories made up by men."
2 Timothy 4:3-4

FYI - The signature on this calendar is not very clear - I think it says "H. Hargrove"
