First Baptist Church of Lakeland
2021 Advent Devotionals
What is the cause for all the celebrations. Advent is more than just “the most wonderful time of the year.” Jesus Christ was born to take away our sins, to destroy the works of the devil, to make the Father known, and to prepare for His own return.
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also the head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn (preeminent one) from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything.
