Advent Devotional

Advent is a time to clean house while we wait for something special to happen. In times past, Advent was a time of reflection, a time to prepare for the coming Messiah, a time to search within the depths of our hearts for things that do not reflect Christ in our lives; then choose God’s better path. In the Book of Romans Chapter 1 verses 28-32, the Holy Bible gives us a mirror which reflects our innermost being. It shows each one of us our need for the Savior, Jesus the Christ, the Messiah. Romans 1:28-32 says,

“28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.”

But Who did God send to save us from our sins? God sent His Son, Jesus, to us. For 33 years, God in the form of the man Jesus of Nazareth ministered in person to the people of the time. As the Apostle Paul penned, almost two centuries ago, in Romans 5:8, “but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Only God could have such great love for so many undeserving people. Let us each prepare our hearts not with “tinsel and trappings” but, instead, let us each prepare our hearts with the love that only God’s Word can give us.

My Lighthouse Rend Collective

In my wrestling and in my doubts
In my failures You won't walk out
Your great love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea,
You are the peace in my troubled sea

In the silence, You won't let go
In the questions, Your truth will hold
Your great love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea,
You are the peace in my troubled sea

I won't fear what tomorrow brings
With each morning I'll rise and sing
My God's love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea,
You are the peace in my troubled sea,

My Lighthouse, my lighthouse
Shining in the darkness, I will follow You.
My Lighthouse, my lighthouse
I will trust the promise,
You will carry me safe to shore.

Safe to shore
Safe to shore
Safe to shore

Please join us this Advent season as we explore God, our Light.
