And The Angels Sang

share post

ADVENT. A time of waiting. Of breath suspended and hearts
preparing room. A remembrance of a coming King, both then and
now. History has heralded a day that’s dawned glorious and new.
It’s a reminder to celebrate the arrival of Jesus, who sets all things
right, and to wait in expectation for His coming again.

Let us explore the scene: We stand beside a stable, peer into a
manger, marvel at the tiny boy stirring in his bed. This little one
will grow into the One who takes away the sins of the world! The sky
split wide with the wonder of angels, bringing great tidings of good
news to shepherds shivering on the night watch.

Glory, this tiny boy wrapped in cloths asleep at His mother’s side.
The world slept on while the shepherds sought the young family,
the mother, father, and child huddled together for warmth by the
animals, and the angels sang.

‘Tis the season for a gift to start Advent: a FREE devotional I wrote for my church!

Each week, we follow along the sermon series, Kingdom Come, and
expound upon the Scripture introduced to us. These daily reflections
guide us through the Bible and explore the week’s Advent topic, and
allows us space to let the Lord speak into our hearts and glean a
nugget of truth to hold to as we go throughout our day.

Throughout this Advent season, try to consider: How does the
already-come Jesus and Him coming again impact the way you live
your life, and how you interact with others? The Kingdom has come.

    In the time I’ve been given to do all my earthly living, I pray that I did all I could do to point others to Jesus. If the whole world only knew that there is so much more abundant life out there to be lived here upon the earth. Surrender to Christ as Lord can shed our earthly cares, trust the Holy Spirit’s leading & ‘Praise Him’ even when there is ‘trouble’ (after all, we have been forewarned in John 16:33, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (Jesus is saying that there will be troubles (a boatload of trouble), and we may even backslide a bit when everything around us is crashing down. We need to focus on Him. If we take our eyes off of Jesus, we end up sinking. (Matthew 14:28, “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” Trust & obey, it truly is the only Way. When I step from this life into the everlasting life (or He returns), I long to hear the words, “Well done”
