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

This joyful prophecy of praise and worship (see below) encapsulates the love of God and the gifts we are receiving. In Jesus, the child born for us and given to us (in itself an overwhelming proposition), we can find an eternal leader, to guide and direct us, who can empower all things, and whose teaching and counsel ultimately bring us to peace. It is a gift so generous, that when you stop to think about it, you can hardly fail but to cry out in joy, unless you’re sitting in stunned disbelief that so much would be given for you.

Loving God, fill my heart with appreciation of all that You do for me, through Your unending love and the example of Your Son Jesus Christ. Fill my soul with joy and gratitude, that I might lift up my voice in reverent praise to worship Your name. Amen.

Isaiah 9: 6

For a child has been born for us,
a son given to us;
authority rests upon his shoulders;
and he is named
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

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