Jesus makes this a season of wonder and joy. We encourage you to intentionally seek after God’s heart through His Word during this season.
Here are some links to help (including a family devotion at the end)! You can also find several options on your YouVersion Bible app.
“Where the Light Shines Brightest Advent Devotional” from Wheaton College (25 days)
“Where the Light Shines Brightest is a 25-day devotional intended to help all of us begin to imagine how this Advent season, and our own personal reflection on the birth of Jesus Christ, can inform, and even transform, our desire and passion to show and share this good news with a broken and hurting world. Each daily devotional includes a short reflection on the birth of Christ and a prayer for applying this revelation to our gospel witness in the world today. Nearly two dozen Christian leaders have contributed to this resource.”
