 Advent and Christmas

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.

I find it hard to focus on joy and gladness right now!  Deep concerns about the way our country’s finances is managed, the plummeting of hope that our politicians will be wise and good in handling anger and despondency as a result of poverty and hunger, inequality and corruption – and many other issues - cloud my vision of a congregation passionately singing “Joy to the world, the Lord is come”, with sincerity!

Rev 12:12:  Therefore rejoice you heavens and you who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.

 First Advent Sunday: Lighting the candle of hope.

We must know that people have to, and try to touch Jesus.  It is not always so visible, so obvious.  They may say quite the opposite.   But people need God and the power of God in their lives.  The only way that the Bible shows us to receive and live by the power of God, is to touch Jesus.  This means, to have an intimate relationship with him.

The good news about God’s supernatural interventions begins by the Gospel telling us about the death of Christ. The Gospel teaches that Christ died in our place and for our benefit and victory.

James asks an important question. What causes fights and quarrels among you? It is certainly a relevant question. It is as relevant today as it was when James wrote his letter.   There is an attack om marriages!  On family relationships!  Amongst friends and comrades!  There even are a variety of conflicts within churches!    Conflict may be one of the biggest causes of emotional distress:   Fear, feelings of inferiority, loneliness, lack of purpose and grateful, joyful living!   Conflicts of various kinds may be one of the main causes of depression and burn-out!

It is, by God’s grace, our birthright and our inheritance to know that although I am in need of salvation, I am redeemed in and through Jesus, my Lord.

Disappointment is often what lies at the heart of depression: We have had certain expectations and reality did not come to the party. If this is intense or happens repeatedly, it can affect our emotions, appetites, sleep and quality of life.

 A second narrative of Jesus multiplying bread and fish to feed 4000 men plus women and children, is found in Matthew 15: 29 – 39.

2 Cor 5:  21:  God made him who had no sin, to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
