FPC Daily Advent Devotional // Monday, December 17
P A U S E
"But the angel said to them [the shepherds], “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord."
Luke 2: 10-11
P O N D E R
We often talk about joy at Christmastime, yet we might not always think about it in it's original context. Is the joy the angel speaks about different than what we think of as joy? How so/not?
P R A Y
God, we shout and sing joyously as we welcome the Messiah. Help us to live into this emotion -- to fully understand what it means to anticipate the coming of Christ. Amen.
