Advent: The Unfolding Mystery

This morning we are beginning a series of sermons to run through the Advent and Christmas season looking at the unfolding mystery of Christ. Advent involves both remembrance and anticipation as we look back upon the first arrival of Christ in human history and await his second coming to complete and consummate his kingdom with the new heavens and new earth. This time of remembrance and anticipation is a time of waiting, reflection, contemplation and hope. We look back and we look forward. This morning we are going to look back at the beginning of this mystery at the Fall of humanity and ask the question what is wrong with us and with the world? This sets the context, the scene for God to take initiative, to take action and to give us hope. We will explore this from two perspectives this morning. First we will look at the consequences of our rebellion. We will explore the comprehensiveness of sin from spiritual, psychological, relational and physical angles. Then we will look at our second point, the commitment of God.
