This advent season is unusual, to say the least. With our newfound, reflective time, what is God revealing to you?
Let the legacy of 2020 in our lives be a deepening of our connection with the Holy Spirit, the one that restores joy in all circumstances.
During a year when it seems nothing but shock, disappointment, and uncertainty is promised, it sometimes feels hard to rejoice.
As we lean into the scriptures and lessons for the week, allow us to be reminded that You are a true source of hope, even in moments of uncertainty and pain.
Do you see your wilderness as something you can’t share with God? Can you share your sins with Jesus today and be in that wilderness with Him together?
The hallmark of God’s deliverance is the reintegration of ourselves and the reconstitution of our world. To imagine that embrace and to feel that caress describes the yearning at the heart of worship.
The journey of repentance that Jesus calls us to take is hard, and many of us are skilled at skirting it. Down that road, however, lies the possibility of our personal redemption and reconciled relationships.
Beginning Nov. 23 and culminating on Christmas Day, Goshen College students, faculty and staff will provide reflections three days each week based on the upcoming Sunday’s lectionary Scripture passages, available online at www.goshen.edu/devotions, or by subscribing to the daily email.
On this Christmas day, I hope that each of us might feel the love of God intimately and personally.
God assures us there is a promise of hope, healing and restoration on the other side of the wait, and for that, we praise.
