1. It’s Advent, Lord:
I wait anew,
To hear your cry,
And welcome you.
2. It’s Christmas:
And you’re born afresh
In my poor mind, heart,
Soul, and flesh.
3. It’s Easter, Lord:
You rise again,
To free me from
All sin and pain.
4. It’s Pentecost:
Each day you burn
Till your great return.
1. Wait expectantly for him (Psalm 37:7; CSB).
The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord” (Isaiah 40:3; NKJV).
2. She gave birth to her first-born son (Luke 2:6; RSV).
I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God (John 3:3; NLT).
Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us (Colossians 3:11; NLT).
3. He ordered Jesus flogged with a lead-tipped whip, then turned him over to the Roman Soldiers to be crucified (Mark 15:15; NLT).
You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! (Mark 16:6; NLT).
He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases (Psalm 103:3; NLT).
4. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them. And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:3-4; NLT).
Didn’t our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us? (Luke 24:32; NLT).
His mercies begin afresh each morning (Lamentations 3:22; NLT).
He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him (Hebrews 9:28; NLT).
In the future you will see the Son of Man seated in the place of power at God’s right hand and coming on the clouds of heaven (Matthew 26:64; NLT).
