Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains. You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand (James 5:7–8).
Advent is a season of waiting. We wait to celebrate Jesus’ birth on Christmas Day. We also continue to wait for Jesus’ return.
As LWML women, we spend time in God’s Word while we wait, as the Holy Spirit establishes in our hearts the life-saving truths found there. We spend time patiently working for our Lord. We collect mites for missions which spread the Gospel message. We pray, asking God to use our works and words to bring to faith those who do not yet know Him.
In this Advent season, how might you use LWML resources to share with others that Jesus is their Savior who has come, who works daily in our lives, and who will return?
