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

The wondrous story of Christmas is incomplete without the impending shadow of Easter. Jesus’ birth is remarkable in that he will go on to die, to take away our sins. He is not majestic and worthy of worship because he is a king, not in this world, but rather because he testifies to the truth of God’s love and our absolution.

Dear Lord, righteous God,
As we celebrate your birth, let us also remain mindful of the truth that you lived out: that God loved us so entirely that he sent us his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him shall not perish but instead have eternal life. 

John 18:37

37 Pilate asked him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.”
