DAY 1 ~ DEVOTION
The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. ~ John 1:9
With so much clamoring for our attention at Christmas, sometimes it’s a challenge to remember the true reason for the season of Advent.
The word Advent comes from the Latin word adventus, which means “coming” or “arrival.”
It’s a season of preparation, not for extra expenses or family gatherings, but to remember the Christ child who came to live among us to secure our redemption. It is a time to pause and cherish God’s most precious gift to us.
Advent is also the anticipation of Christ’s return at the Second Coming. When we celebrate the birth of our Savior, we’re honoring the sacrifice He made for us too. Gathering around the manger is only part of it. We also need to journey to the foot of the cross.
So while you might still get swept up in all the hurried activity of the Christmas season, be intentional this year to take time during Advent to prepare your heart. Remember that God laid aside His glory to become human because of His great love for you, and He will also return one day to restore glory to His people.
There are few truths in this world that can be more wonderful, more exciting than this.
* What kinds of things mark the start of the Christmas season for you?
* Is celebrating Advent part of your traditions? If not, how can you make it a special part this year?
* Do you tend to feel harried and overwhelmed this time of year? If so, how can you carve out some time for reflection to prepare your heart?
