At the heart of Advent is a radical revolutionary demonstration of God’s love for us. God created us for a relationship with him. Unfortunately, human reasoning and pride got in the way and derailed God’s plan.
In His great love and mercy God relentlessly sought out his people who repeatedly rebelled and turned away. God created pathway to redemption and restoration by sending His son to Earth.
16 “For God so loved the world,[a] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. John 3:16-18 ESV
