Now that we have all had our fill of turkey and moved out of the Thanksgiving season, the hearts and minds of many have turned to Christmas and all it brings. There’s decorating, parties, presents and performances that begin to fill our lives from top to bottom. In a season meant to celebrate the coming Christ, many of us become bogged down with the race to get to December 25.
While remembering the “reason for the season” is something that has become little more than a trite phrase in the American church, it is a relevant reminder for all of us. We need to find ourselves becoming reacquainted and refreshed by the biblical account of the promised and coming Messiah who spans the whole of Scripture. It is only when we soak in the truths of Advent that are laid out in the Bible that we can we grasp the true reason and power of the coming Christ.
Starting tomorrow and carrying through December 26, I’ll be writing a short daily advent devotional that will share Scripture, devotional thoughts and prayer prompts so that we all can focus on the birth of our Savior. I’d encourage you to take a few minutes everyday to join me on this Advent journey.
