As Christians, we use a lot of words to make sense outside the context of religion. When we try to explain those words to ourselves or other people, we sometimes don’t know how to do that. And so, for the next couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing with you 30 words every Christian should know.
30 words every Christian should know
Salvation: the great deliverance from the guilt of sin.
That definition I actually got from the King James Bible Dictionary. If you’re wanting to find any words from the Bible that you don’t know the definition of, you can just go along to that website, pop in a word, and it will give you tons of free resources.

If there’s a word in Christian language we use and you don’t really know what it means or you want help to understand, leave a comment and I will try to define it for you as soon as I can.
Advent: a Coming
The reason Advent is such a used word in Christian circles is that this is usually the word that we use for the preparation time before Christmas. And so for 4 Sundays before Christmas, each Sunday represents something and that whole time is to help Christians prepare their hearts for Christmas day.
And so the four Sundays of Advent are hope, faith, joy, and peace.
What I hadn’t considered until I was thinking about this word recently, is we usually talk about Advent at Christmas- remembering the coming of Jesus as a baby.
But, we are also waiting for The second coming of Christ. The Bible tells us Jesus is coming again.
Now, during the Christmas Advent, I will also prepare my heart for the second coming of Christ
