Advent Day 11: God’s love for you is life-giving

“I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” -John 10:10 In Ephesians 2:1-2, Paul writes to Christians, “And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air,...

Advent Day 10: God’s love for you is beautifully invasive!

“The Lord commands His steadfast love…” -Psalm 42:8 Notice the image that the Psalmist uses: “The Lord commands His steadfast love.” It’s a military metaphor. Not only is the love of God constant and always near, but the God of love will invade your life by His grace....

Advent Day 9: God’s love for you is a willing love

“Jesus…who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” -Hebrews 12:2 Here’s what the Christmas story is all about: a willing Savior born to rescue unwilling people from themselves...

Advent Day 8: God’s love for you is wonderfully incomprehensible

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” -John 1:14 This is the meaning of Christmas. God has come into the world He created, born of a human virgin, in the person of Jesus Christ. What would cause God to do such a thing for such rebellious people like us?...

Advent Day 7: Hope is for everyone.

17 The war horse is a false hope for salvation, and by its great might it cannot rescue. 18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, 19 that he may deliver their soul from death and keep them alive in famine. 20...

Advent Day 6: Hope dispels all fear.

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. -1 John 4:18 Fear is one of my biggest pet peeves. It annoys me that it has so much power to stop me in my tracks. For...

Advent Day 5: Hope is the ability to let go of my own control.

As we reflect on the first coming of Jesus and anticipate the second, we need to ultimately ask the question, why did Jesus have to come? The answer, sin. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23 Sin is sneaky and it took me a...

Advent Day 4: Hope is the promise that God will.

Hope is the promise that God will. As I wrote this sentence, I couldn’t help but want to add a word to the end and it made me chuckle to myself a little. I think that’s where a lot of us get stuck; God will what? The only answer is, yes, for...

Advent Day 3: Hope of living is not the hope of existing

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men - John 1:4 Eat, work, sleep, eat, work, sleep. This is the common cycle of life that most of us adhere to and it would be really hard to deviate from this. It all correlates, I must eat for energy to work,...

Advent Day 2: Hope is not the same as wishful thinking

But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. - 1 Thessalonians 5:8 When’s the last time you hoped for something? I remember as a kid always hoping for a video game...
