From Abraham’s Advent’s Introduction:
“Advent is a time of both reflection and anticipation. It looks ahead to Christmas Day, following the story of those who waited and hoped for the coming of the Saviour. Yet it looks even farther, to hopes still awaiting fulfillment at Christ’s second coming. It is a season of longing, hope, and promise.
The weeks before Christmas are too often filled with a frenzy of activity. But Advent invites us to pause, to reflect, and to prepare spiritually for the celebration of Jesus’ birth. Advent invites us to savor the sense of expectation and wonder that is unique to the season.
Advent begins the fourth Sunday before Christmas and continues until Christmas Eve. This devotional has a special reading for each of the four Sundays of Advent, Scriptural reflections for each day of the week, and a lyric selection for each Saturday.
This devotional is meant to be a humble companion as you journey through the season. It follows the story of one man who learned to live within the promises of God. But it can be your story too if you are willing to sit awhile by a Bethlehem fire.”
A portion of proceeds from Abraham’s Advent is going to Preemptive Love Coalition and the amazing, life-changing work they are doing in the Middle East. In places of darkness and desperation, they are healing hearts, waging peace, and loving anyway. Find out more here.
