December is here, and this is the month that we prepare ourselves and our homes for the coming of Jesus or Advent. 

Advent is generally a very busy time for most people. They are busy cooking, decorating, buying food and gifts for others. But most important than any Christmas preparation is preparing your heart for the birth of Jesus who lights up our way to the father and saves our lives. 1.

 

Advent is a Latin word that actually means “coming.” In the Christian church, advent is time of preparation and waiting for the birth of Jesus. Advent officially begins four Sundays before Christmas. 2.

What do the Advent Candles Represent?

  • Candle two (purple) represents peace. It is often called the angels’ candle.
  • Candle three (pink) represents joy. It is often called the shepherds’ candle.
  • Candle four (purple) represents love. It is often called the Bethlehem candle. 3.
