Sometimes we just get stuck in our relationship with Jesus. Advent reminds us that it is necessary to change direction from time to time. This is a slightly different sermon to the 0800 Sermon on the same topic.
One of the messages in Advent is about changing direction. Sometimes we get stuck where we are in our relationship with God, and Advent is a great opportunity to reflect on that, and hopefully change direction and get to our destination, new life in Christ.
In Luke 6:12-16 we read about Jesus going to a quiet place to pray all night before he selects 12 men from the group of disciples that were following him at the time. The passage is instructive for us. Prayer must be at the heart of all we do.
