Well, Thanksgiving is in the rear view mirror and Christmas is almost here (24 days to be exact but who's counting...oh wait, I AM!!!!). As we enter the busy month of December, it can be so easy to be pulled away from worship and wonder to commercialism and consumerism. Throughout this month we need Linus to stand up on a daily basis, recite Luke 2:8-14 ending with,
"Glory to God in the highest and on earth, peace, goodwill toward men," and say loud and clear,
"that's what Christmas is all about Charlie Brown!"
We need constant reminders of the glory of God incarnate, Emmanuel, God with us! So, to that end, I wanted to pass along some links to daily advent readings that can encourage your heart, stir you to worship, and lead you to child-like wonder and awe at the miracle of Christmas.
An excellent book from Paul Tripp
