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

A baby born in humility, given the name Jesus, but carrying also so many other titles: Christ, Messiah, Son of the Most High, Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace. And perhaps most importantly: Emmanuel – God is with us. As John expressively put it: the Word became flesh and lived among us. The grace and forgiveness and love of God manifest in a man who would go on to die for us. On this day of great joy, let us give thanks for the eternal love of God in our lives.

Loving God, I thank You for the greatest gift of all – Your unending love and grace – manifest in the life of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank You for loving me and being with me through the passage of my life. Keep me close to You to know and share Your love with those around me, today and always. Amen.

John 1: 14

And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth.

Thank you for joining us on this prayerful path through Advent.
Blessings and best wishes for 2018.
