 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.

But let’s be humble, because the old man has not yet fully gone. The new man has not yet fully taken over. The fact is, we still sin.
So we already have new life but it is not yet fully displayed.

There is no grace or faith without God’s love for the world

In eastern Christian tradition and in Spanish speaking communities, while the birth of Christ is celebrated on December 25, the arrival of the Magi is celebrated on January 6 and called the Feast of Epiphany. This feast is in Orthodoxy celebrated with even more magnificent festivities and church services than Christmas.
Yet, most western lectionaries incorporate this celebration.

Remember that excuses cannot redeem us from what is against the will of God.
Only Jesus Christ redeems!

We must not overlook Luke 2:19, even though it is a small, silent verse “hiding” amongst so many grand stories about Christmas.
Luke 2: 19 teach an important lesson.  We read there:  But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart”.

1 Samuel 16:7:  "The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

We know the Lord’s plans for us are to prosper and that no harm will overcome us.  What we do not know, is what the journey to victory entails.

We are citizens of God’s Kingdom because we seek to follow Jesus in everything we do. All the wrongs and all the evil and all the bad governance we experience on earth can cause so much fear and anger that it robs us of the vision and passion to receive what God’s plans are for us: to prosper and not to be harmed.

God created us to worship him. We therefore thirst to worship the Lord and even when people do not acknowledge the need, it still exists.  We will remain unfulfilled if we don’t.

The members of the church are not perfect.  Therefore the church is not perfect and  is often embarrassed by what both our members and leaders do.
