“important arrival,” 1742, an extended sense of Advent “season before Christmas” (Old English), from L. adventus “a coming, approach, arrival,” in Church Latin “the coming of the Savior,” from pp. stem of advenire “arrive, come to,” from ad- “to” (see ad-) + venire “to come”
We are now in the season of Advent. The word derives from the Latin venire (“to come”) + ad (“to”). So the word can be rendered “He comes to.” Advent is about Christ coming to us.
Luther said that it isn’t enough to believe that Christ died. We need to believe that Christ died for us, for me, for you. Christ rose from the dead for you. When we realize the “for you,” we have gone from historical information to saving faith.
Similarly, God became Man for you. Christ came for you, and He still comes to you, and He will come again for you.
May you have a blessed Advent!
