Pastor Bramwell preached this sermon on Romans 13:11 for the First Sunday in Advent (Ad Te Levavi) on November 27, 2022.
What is the short season of Advent all about?
What are the three comings of Jesus highlighted during Advent (“advent” means coming/arrival)?
What can we learn from pregnant mothers (Mary, the mother of Jesus) during the season of Advent?
As the calendar moves us closer to the celebration of Christmas, what else does it move us closer to?
Romans 13:11 says, “salvation is nearer to us ______ than when we first __________.”
St. Mark Lutheran Church posts Rev. Bramwell’s sermons online for the sake of the members of our congregation who are unable to gather with us due to illness, work, etc. This resource is not intended to discourage anyone from gathering in person around God’s Word and Sacraments. Matthew 18:20 and Hebrews 10:25 make it clear that God’s Divine Service is meant to be experienced physically with other Christians.
