Advent is almost here.
I'll be honest, I've never participated in advent. However, I just read a devotional about advent and I am sold. It is a time to celebrate the arrival of our Lord Jesus Christ. I can't believe I have been missing out on this special time!
In the complimentary copy of the book below, I read four weeks of devotionals. Each week was centered around a theme: hope, preparation, joy, and love. I didn't do the activities my first time through, but I plan on doing them once advent starts on December 2nd.
The devotional is a great resource to have as it encourages prayer and the reading of God's word as you celebrate Jesus Christ. I even learned what the advent calendar is all about. The most important, yet often neglected part, are the discussion questions and application. I really want to be more intentional about doing this part, especially with this advent devotional. Don't forget song and praise, which you will find as you start each week of the advent devotional.
Each day is only 2-3 pages long, so you don't have to worry about taking a vacation from work to participate. Not only is the book small, the cover is absolutely beautiful.
Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
