I am so excited that December has started. And what did the first few days out here in sunny San Diego bring? RAIN, sweet, rain! I love how it feels chilly and fresh outside. I can hear it dripping outside my window and I love every second of it.
I am also so excited I started reading a devotional for the month of December. It’s called The Dawning of Indestructible Joy and John Piper wrote it for the advent season.
From the definition above we can see that advent means the arrival of something amazing. Something beautiful. Something new. Or should I say someONE.
As a follower of Christ, I celebrate advent in December because of the arrival of Jesus . The arrival of Jesus provided the most notable thing to have ever happened – the gospel. The arrival of Jesus provided us with an indestructible joy – the gospel. The arrival of Jesus is why we celebrate Christmas at all – the gospel.
Please join me in reading this daily advent devotional. It’s not too late to catch up…it’s only December 3rd! Click the picture below or HERE to download the FREE PDF.
“The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we
have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the
Father, full of grace and truth. . . . For from his fullness
we have all received, grace upon grace.”
JOHN 1:14–16 AMEN.
I will praying for FULLNESS for you and your family this advent/Christmas season.
