Day 3: The Beginning...A Perfect Home

Read: Jesus Storybook Bible 18-18-27 or Genesis 1-2 Think: There are 1,189 chapters in the Bible, and only two of them tell us about a creation untouched by sin and rebellion against God. Advent is a season of waiting. We are not only awaiting Jesus’ birth, but the future yet to come when the effects of sin and death will be wiped away from creation and we will once again exist in perfect community with each other and God. Where have you seen the glory of God in the beauty of his creation today? How does God declaring everything as “good” impact our view of the world and ourselves? Pray: For thankful hearts for the beautiful world around us and a growing longing in our hearts for God to make all things new again. Maybe pray outside or while looking out the window, thanking God for what you see, recognizing it as good.
