Announcing "PEACE: A FOUR-WEEK ADVENT GUIDE" from iBELIEVE.COM!
Every year, as excited as I am for Christmas, I'm even more excited about Advent. The four weeks that lead up to celebrating Christ's birth are a time of expectant waiting and preparation for his coming, and I cherish them. "Advent" comes from a Latin word for "coming," and even though we know the Christmas story well, it's a time to reflect on his coming and prepare for it in new ways. Many churches light candles and read the Christmas story in Scripture as a way to center our hearts on Christ in this season, and this year, we have created a four-week Advent guide as a helpful devotional tool for your personal quiet times.
For these next four weeks, we invite you to reflect on the peace that comes from Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Christ came to our world on a holy night, a peaceful night, and he alone is the source of our peace. In a world that can often feel hurried and hurting and hopeless, we draw close to our Heavenly Father and cling to the peace we find in him.
In this guide from our sister site iBelieve.com, you'll find 28 cards to read, reflect on, and pray over. Print these pages, cut the squares out, and keep them somewhere visible throughout this Advent season beginning . You can string them across your mantle, add them to our journal, tape them to your mirror, or even just keep these printed pages on a table.
May this season be one of peace as we await and celebrate the birth of our Savior,
A Joyous Noel from Crosswalk.com and iBelieve.com!
