Advent challenge day 1

I am doing the Bible Society’s advent challenge……

1st stop: Judah, c. 750 BC‘The Lord says, “Bethlehem Ephrathah, you are one of the smallest towns in Judah, but out of you I will bring a ruler for Israel, whose family line goes back to ancient times.”’ Micah 5.2
Hundreds of years before Jesus arrived on earth, his birth was promised through the prophets, like in these words from Micah, who listened to what God was saying and shared with the people. The Bible tells us Jesus fulfilled 353 prophecies of the Old Testament. Sometimes we have to wait for things. As Advent begins, your first challenge is to exercise patience. You can do this however you want but I am doing this by allowing people in front of me in traffic! – Helen
