Advent In the Bible

Many people think of advent as only the Christmas advent that has been made so popular by consumerism. However, advent in the Bible is a time of waiting, preparation, and expectation of both the birth of Jesus and the second coming of Jesus Christ. Advent is a church tradition, not something that is specifically outlined in the Bible.

This begs the question, should Bible-believing Christians celebrate Advent? Perhaps the best verse in the Bible to answer this question is below. Honor each other’s convictions, and if you feel like celebrating Advent, do so.

One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God.

Romans 14:5-6 ESV

Advent Calendar Bible Verses

One tradition that is often seen at Christmas is reviewing, memorizing, or using advent calendars filled with Bible verses to remind oneself of the story of Christmas.

Advent Cards for the Family

There are many different advent traditions that are already made for you if you would rather not make your own up! Here are a few of my favorite. Many of these use advent cards to help emphasize the Christmas story throughout the month of December. My favorite is the Shepherds Treasure which is an alternative to Elf on the Shelf. The shepherd and book come with a pack of advent cards, but there are additional advent card packs that you can purchase for new years.

  1. Unwrapping the Greatest Gift
  2. The Shepherds Treasure
  3. The Giving Manger

IMPORTANT! Stay on this page once you submit your email address. There will be a link right in the box below that you can download your cards from.
