 Advent and Christmas
are not sentimental feasts
around a helpless babe.
They proclaim: The King was born!
The King conquers!
The King is coming! The King is coming indeed!"

Devotional thoughts for most days, for those who depend on the grace and mercy of God in Jesus Christ. These thoughts are Bible based and inspired by my Reformed tradition.

 Nothing is accomplished without dreams and aspirations. We should all dream at the beginning of a new year - not only about our own needs and opportunities, but certainly also about what God wants to and can do through our faith community.

 “Glory to man in the highest" seems to be an appropriate anthem for a world order where man can save himself, create utopia, build a perfect society and bring an end to despair, where the beginning of hope is man himself...
 
In the very beginning of St. Luke’s Christmas story (Luke 2:1) he tells us about Caesar Augustus, the king and saviour of the world. Then in Luke 2: 11 he also tells about a baby in a manger, who is a saviour - Christ the Lord!

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light.  You have given them great joy, Lord; you have made them happy. Because a child is born to us!  A son is given to us!  And he will be our ruler.   He will be called, “Wonderful Counsellor,” “Mighty God,” “Eternal Father,” Prince of Peace.”

 Kan burgerlike versoening in ons land ’n werklikheid word?

 If you ever said about young, newly married people, “what a great couple”, wait until you hear of Joseph and Mary, elected to take the Son of God into their household as a helpless Babe to protect and to care for!

 Tata Nelson Mandela guided South Africa from the shame of racialist nationalism to the values of equality, reconciliation, unity, respect, integrity and democracy.

During this first Season of the Christian Calendar, we are, as part of the world-wide church, reminded of the Advent of Christ, meaning his coming into our world. 
Candle light signifies Christ, the light of the world, who came to us as a Babe more than 2000 ago.

 I was thinking about the end of year chaos everyone finds themselves in and put this together.

 Just as we value and defend our personal freedoms, we should guard against anyone who wants to steal our spiritual freedom in Christ. The good news of the message of Christ, of the gospel,  is that we have been set free to live in the power of Christ, to choose to live for God and drink from the wisdom of the Holy Spirit.

Out of all the people Jesus could have chosen to call to be part of his faith community, he chose Levi, also known as Matthew, a tax collector. They were the most hated men in all Israel.
