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

The birth of Jesus is intertwined with the birth of John the Baptist, who was sent to testify to the grace of God and prepare the way for Jesus. Through both his birth and his later ministry, John let his life and teaching point to Jesus. His ministry – to lead others to know and recognise Jesus as the Messiah – is available to each one of us today: how might our lives testify to the light of Jesus?

Loving God, all that I have in life that is good, I have from You. Empower me through the talents and opportunities You create for me to share Your light in the world. From a warm smile, to a shoulder to cry on, remind me that no act is too small when done in faith and love. Amen.

John 1: 6-9

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light. The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.

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