Advent 2020: Believe

Find Him awesome.

The calendar tells us we have two days until Christmas Eve. With yesterday’s winter solstice, the light of day begins to increase, little by little.

Most often, the light of Jesus in our lives waxes and wanes in the same way — little by little — it doesn’t stay the same. We are either moving toward Him or away from Him on any given day or season of life.

Today consider how Advent as a spiritual journey has affected you. Discern whether your heart is a little nearer to the adoration Jesus deserves or if the light from the manger is dimmer than in seasons past.

Reflect.

What was your heart’s response to today’s devotional? How did it make you feel?


Something must be done to help us once more feel the awe, the fear, the astonishment, the wonder of the Son of God…

John Piper, Joy to the World

John Piper tells us there is no more exciting story, no more thrilling tale, than the one of the Son of God, yet it fails to capture our attention.

What stories are your favorites? action-adventure? mystery? science-fiction? romance?

What is it about your favorite genre that holds your attention? captures your imagination? speaks to your heart?

Consider what you do know about Jesus’s story — the one told from Genesis to Revelation. Are there elements of the stories you love in His story?

Ask God to help you see His story in a fresh light. Ask Him to capture your heart with the truth of all He did, does, and will do. Open your heart for the Holy Spirit to tell you the greatest story ever told.

“I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.” — Jesus
John 16:12-14 NIV
