Read: Jesus Storybook Bible 200-207 or John 1 Think: Merry Christmas! Christ our Savior is born! He has come to set the captive free and to make all things new! Today, is our last day of the Advent devotional (technically advent ended last night and we are now in the two weeks of Christmas). As you gather with friends and family and later this afternoon for worship, remember that the arrival of Jesus meant that God was breaking into this world to carry out his rescue of his people. About thirty years after Jesus was born he would begin his public ministry and go about preaching that the kingdom of heaven had begun in his coming! Let us celebrate Christ’s coming, not just today, but everyday. Pray: For a joyful and thankful heart that Christ our Savior is born!
