Week of JOY!
The traditional reading for the third Sunday of Advent comes from Philippians 4:4 which says: “Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!”
Reason for the Season
You know, it is so easy to celebrate the Christmas season by being busy doing “all the things” like baking, playing seasonal music, going to parties. That often leaves us empty and wondering isn’t there more? That more we’re longing for is Jesus!
Pull out your Bible each day. Read His birth story together with friends and/or family. Really connect to the reason for the season rather than rushing about. Slow down and appreciate the gift that Christ offers each of us.
Have you shared your testimony with anyone lately? Do you remember that joyful feeling you got the last time you spoke the miracle out loud, proclaiming the truth of Christ in your life? I don’t know why it is that we Christians stay silent about the salvation we have received from a sweet babe who became our savior! But, the promise of eternal life with God through Christ should have us screaming from the rooftops!
Advent Activity Day 12
Read John 1:1-8. Share your testimony with at least one person. Share the joy that being saved has brought to your life!
