The season of Advent represents the Christian life. Believers of the Old Testament era waited in faith and hope for God to send the Offspring of the woman to redeem them. We wait for Jesus’ second coming and the fulfillment of our redemption.
The Christian Church now lives in the great “Time Between.” We wait in faith and hope. Though all believers are saints through faith in Christ, there are those Christians who have become living testimonies that He truly is the living Savior. They help the rest of us to believe.
Martin Luther voiced the opinion that the saints deserve our honor, for in their lives God showed examples of His mercy and taught generations of believers. We recall three such saints, all of whom have days on the church calendar during the season of Advent.
