The Response for our Savior  

Scripture Reading

Isaiah 7:10-14

Psalm 24

Romans 1:1-7

Think of when you have been in charge of caring for someone?
What did you enjoy about watching over that person?
What made it difficult to care for that person?

Devotional Thought

Our promised Savior has come and it is by His grace that we are able to see Him for who He is and live a life that reflects Him well!

The love of God is seen through the coming of Jesus Christ. In Genesis 3 we saw sin enter the world and the promise was made that sin would be crushed. Jesus Christ was the sacrificial lamb who would crush the serpent’s head and defeat sin for good. What an amazing thing to know sin can be forgiven and a relationship can be had with God.

Jesus left to be seated with His Father but He is alive and will once again return to collect His followers. For now, it is for those of us who are followers of Christ, the church, to show and share the Gospel so that others may experience in our hope, joy, and excitement. He is coming again to finalize His war over sin. Sin and Satan have no power because of a God who keeps His promises!

Reflection

Think about the life of Christ and His ultimate sacrifice on the cross on our behalf. What makes this so important to mankind? If you don’t know the answer to this, ask a pastor, friend, or family member that has a relationship with Jesus to share about salvation found through Jesus.

Do you find it difficult to live out your faith? Why or why not?

What about this Advent season has helped encourage boldness in your faith?

Respond in Action

Who is someone that needs a last minute word of encouragement, gift, or hug in order for you to show them that you care for them? Does this person need to hear about the Savior who loves them more then we ever could?

Pray that the reflection from this Advent season will push you further in your walk with God. Pray that this coming year will be the best spiritual year you have ever had!
