"I thought Christmas Day would never come
But it's here at last, so mom and dad, the waiting's finally done
And you gotta get up, you gotta get up, you gotta get up"
Rich Mullins in his song "Gotta get up" really captures the anticipation of Christmas day and the excitement that surrounds the celebration.
In the Old Testament we can read about the same type of anticipation. For years the arrival of the "Long Awaited" King was not just foretold...but expected. Many times we forget that long before the busy, frantic, consumer driven day there was anticipation. Anticipation for the birth of Jesus Christ.
During the coming weeks join us at UABC as we remind ourselves about the one that was the "Long Awaited" KING!!
