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.

Incarnation: It means that someone living according to the spirit, becomes Someone who came to us according to the flesh.
This is the Biblical word for Christmas. Incarnation.

The fourth candle of the advent wreath represents love. God showed his love for us in sending his Son, born of the flesh as the son of David and born anew in power through his resurrection from the dead as the eternal Son of God.

The angel choir proclaimed to the shepherds on the night of the birth of the Messiah, that glory should be given to God in the highest heaven and that the peace of Christ should be proclaimed on earth to those on whom God’s favour rests. (Luke 2: 14)

Simeon and Anna were “watchmen”. They hoped, waited and watched for the coming of the Messiah. They were filled with great expectation, because it had been revealed to them by the Holy Spirit that they would see the promised Christ. (Lk 2:26).

During the four Sundays before Christmastide starts on Christmas Day, we are prepared to celebrate a real Christmas, and more importantly, we are prepared that Jesus Christ is coming into our lives and churches – and one day returns to us, in glory.

When the ordinary was impossible, they did what could be perceived as the impossible, or least the extraordinary. And the man received a lot more than his friends expected. Not only was he healed from his paralysis, Jesus also unconditionally forgave his sins.

Jesus was upset by the need of a desperate man suffering from the dreadful illness of leprosy. (Mark 1: 40 – 45.) Jesus declared his willingness to help him and acted decisively in the man’s life by cleansing him.

The common goal in the Body of Christ is the growth of the body. As each member does his or her individual part, it causes the growth of the Body as a whole. The Body is responsible for the building up of itself in love as it ministers to our neighbour and to each other member of the Body.
