Advent 2013 Devotionals
Advent is here once again.
When we celebrate Advent, we relive all of the longing and yearnings for the coming of the Messiah that our fathers in the faith experienced before us. We look back and remember the people of the Old Testament as they waited for the Savior that God had promised through the prophets.
Advent reminds us that God became an infant by sending His Son, Jesus, to the world to live the perfect life that we could not live. Ultimately, Jesus came to redeem His people by dying on a cross, as our substitute for our sin, so that the wrath of God the Father would be completely satisfied and us fully accepted in return.
Advent also reminds us that one day Jesus will return to the earth, not to suffer for sins again, but to bring us home to the Father and destroy His enemies. It’s during this season that we look forward to and anticipate Jesus’ second Advent where He will put an end to all pain, suffering, and death.
Don’t allow the holidays to steal your joy, but instead allow the grace of God to transform and renew you. Abide deep in Christ and let the goodness of God wash over you.
