Welcome to ADVENT 2019
Winter sure came early this year. Snow in mid-October caught a lot of us unprepared. And now, here comes Christmas. Use these devotions to help you prepare for the celebration of the birth of our Savior.
The theme for these devotions is Here comes the King. Welcoming a king takes preparation. Welcoming our heavenly King takes spiritual preparation. Spiritual preparation takes place in the heart. As that dearly loved Christmas song says, “Let ev’ry heart prepare him room.”
This Advent booklet is a tool to help you “prepare him room.” It is designed to be used once per week for the three weeks leading up to Christmas.
Set aside 30 minutes each week. Consider . . .
-using these devotions at the dinner table.
-inviting another St. Andrew family or a neighbor family to join you.
-meeting friends at your favorite coffee shop.
-gathering Saturday morning at home after breakfast.
-visiting someone who is homebound and worshiping with him or her.
-getting your Growth Group together for one week or all three weeks.
Whenever and wherever you choose, be encouraged in knowing that your St. Andrew brothers and sisters are doing the same thing, with the same words, in the same faith.
May our King be glorified, and may you be drawn closer to him.
