In this post are the first two weeks of my Advent reflections. Each one has added depth and meaning to my Christmas devotions. May they do the same for you.
Day 1: The King is coming. Let us prepare our hearts for His arrival.
Day 2: Incarnation: Jesus became like us so we could become like him.
Day 3: Jesus, the Light of the World, came into the world scattering the darkness.
Day 4: Jesus comes as the Good Shepherd who leads us in valleys and on mountains, who protects us from evil, who provides all needs.
Day 5: Jesus comes as the Bread of Life, sustaining, providing, giving meaning and purpose.
Day 7: Jesus comes as the Truth, giving us foundation, assurance, confidence, knowledge of right and wrong.
Day 8: Jesus comes as the Living Water: “The water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
Day 9: Jesus comes revealing the Father: “If you have seen me, you have seen the Father.”
Day 10: Jesus comes as the Yes! Amen! to all the promises of Scripture.
Day 11: Jesus comes walking on water, subduing the storms of our lives, raising us up when we go under.
Day 12: Jesus comes as the living Word of God, revealing to us all that God has said and wants to say to us.
Day 13: Jesus comes as the first born of God, making possible my adoption into the Family of God.
Day 14: Jesus comes as Redeemer, able and willing to purchase our freedom and forgiveness by His blood.
