ADVENT Day 17

Week three is a reminder that the Advent season is a season of joy because our salvation is already at hand.

When Jesus was born into this world, it had huge implications. Not only did He come to set the captives free (Luke 4:18), He also came to give His followers a brand new identity (2 Corinthians 5:17).

The love of Christ now compels us to live for Him and seek to glorify God in everything we do instead of trying to glorify ourselves. It’s a lifelong process, continuing to learn how to live for Jesus instead of living for ourselves.

Personally, we live out joy in our lives by spending time with God through prayer, reading the Bible, and trusting that the Holy Spirit will lead us to repentance, out of our old ways and into the newness of life in Christ. God will direct us on what it means to have a new identity and to be joyful in the process.

The Gospel drives our identity. As we progress and continue to see more and more just how sinful we are, we see how holy God really is. What Jesus did on the cross becomes that much more important for us and the cross gets bigger for us each day. The more we realize there is nothing we can do for our salvation and that everything has been done for us through Jesus, the more we can live out joy in our new identity as a follower of Christ.

ADVENT Day 16

Week three is a reminder that the Advent season is a season of joy because our salvation is already at hand.

When Jesus was born into this world, He not only provided a way to God the Father, He also modeled joy for us from day one, doing everything in accordance with His Father’s will (Luke 10:21).

  • He was joyful in His relationship to His Father.

  • He was joyful in serving others as He healed and provided for them.

  • He was joyful in passing joy to God’s children.

  • He was joyful as He endured the cross (Hebrews 12:2).

This is where joy comes from. This is who joy comes from. Jesus provided the perfect model for us to understand how to find and express real joy, in our relationship with Him and in our relationships with others. Nothing else can even come close to defining joy for us like Jesus can.

Advent Day 15

The third Sunday of Advent is also called Gaudete Sunday. Gaudete is a Latin word that means “rejoice.” Some people mark this Sunday by lighting a pink candle instead of a purple one on their Advent wreath. It is a reminder that the Advent season is a season of joy because our salvation is already at hand.

Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the new-born King!
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled."
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With the angelic host proclaim,
"Christ is born in Bethlehem."
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the new-born King!

Christ, by highest heaven adored:
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold him come,
Offspring of the favoured one.
Veiled in flesh, the Godhead see;
Hail, the incarnate Deity:
Pleased, as man, with men to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel!
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the new-born King!

Hail! the heaven-born
Prince of peace!
Hail! the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
Risen with healing in his wings
Mild he lays his glory by,
Born that man no more may die:
Born to raise the son of earth,
Born to give them second birth.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the new-born King !"

To everyone praying for Christopher:
He was able to have the tonsilar cyst removed and is healing just fine.
We also had the neuro-opthomologist visit. It seems that the vision problem is not from his eyes, but from his brain. Praise the Lord that the brain MRI came back normal with no tumors. Continue to pray for complete healing.
Also continue to pray that his oral surgery can be scheduled when insurance approves.
Thank you!
