The Christ Follower
by Dr. Dan Sharp, Minister of Worship
One of the joys and advantages of following the Christian Year like we are doing with the Advent booklet, is that our attention is very Christocentric, that is, we are continually turning our attention to Jesus Christ. We are following His life and ministry day-by-day as our lives are shaped by His as He walks with us through each day. We are taken again and again to God’s perspective of life.
As we go through this day, Jesus lives His life in us, as God accomplishes His purposes in and through us. Reflecting on the Incarnation, which is one of the things that happens during Advent, helps us put the ordinary events of today in the proper perspective of God’s mission to this world.
After all, it is His story, His plan and purpose that we are living out, not ours.
