Discover - Advent Devotional @ Walton United Church, Oakville, Ontario

The impact of the nativity story can only be fully realised when as adults John the Baptist and Jesus begin their pre-ordained ministries, and here again we see connections made to the Old Testament. For the emergent disciples, they are discovering the Messiah that had been foretold throughout the Old Testament, and are about to embark on an unfathomable, life-changing journey. For us too, while there is security in the familiarity of the nativity story, yet we can also discover new ways that God can appear in our lives and change our journey, if we open ourselves to that possibility.

Loving God, give me fresh eyes to see the nativity story from new perspectives, to see Your presence in our world from a different angle, and to receive Your encouragement for my life without preconceptions or limits. Help me to discover You anew. Amen.

John 1: 45

Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found him about whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth.”
