 Advent and Christmas
are not sentimental feasts
around a helpless babe.

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.

Give thanks to God, because through his mercy we received the spirit of discipline that we may triumph over evil and grow in grace.
Glory to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, gracious and merciful, world without end!

The feast of Shavuot, or feast of Weeks, did not only remember God’s care while the Israelites were wandering through the desert for 40 years, but also gave thanks for God’s blessings during the harvest at the end of summer, and prayed for those important winter rains during the months that follow.

 It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High,  proclaiming your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night.  For you make me glad by your deeds,  Lord; I sing for joy at what your hands have done.

 Often religious church-going people see it as their duty to separate them from sinners, unbelievers and all who do not share their spiritual view of life. Unfortunately it is often more about upholding man-made laws and traditions, than an attitude of making sure that they do not offend God or break his commandments.

Today Jesus still asks us, as he asked the Twelve – (John 6:  67 and 68)   You do not want to leave too, do you?”

 When Christ looked at the worshippers in the temple, he saw that some relied for their salvation on their own goodness and on their moral purity, rather than on the mercy of God.

Father, bring glory to your Name, bring glory to the Name of our Saviour and Lord; bring glory to your Name through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit:  bring glory to your Name through our worship today!

 People who can selflessly set aside personal ambition and genuinely seek the good of others, have an attitude that pleases God.

 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!
