When Mary sang her song of praise, she declared the very personal nature of God's love coming to earth. Jesus didn't come JUST for "the world", but he came with YOU in mind. There is truly a personal revelation of love that comes at Christmas and through Jesus Christ.
From Mary's song in Luke 1:
- Love took notice of me
- Love has done great things for me
- Love has shown mercy to me
- Love is mighty
- Love cares for me
- Love has PROMISED!
This advent season, I pray that you and yours will be reminded of the greatest gift of love EVER given! Jesus Christ, Emmanuel, come to reveal the fullness of God's love to all mankind ... including YOU!
Praying for Hope this Season,
Advent Resource: Unwrapping the Greatest Gift
If you are looking for a good resource to help your family engage in this ADVENT season, I HIGHLY recommend this book by Ann Voskamp. "Unwrapping the Greatest Gift".
We have begun Advent already in our home because we invariably miss an evening or two. This is our main advent resource and we LOVE the process of remembering the Jesse Tree. If you buy the book, you can download free "ornaments" which can be hung for each day.
Don't worry that you're behind. Pick up a copy at Family Christian Store, or online and enjoy the advent season.
