Advent 2018 Day 11

We continue with the Gospel of Christ:

John 19:26

When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!”

Matthew 27:46b

“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

Luke 23:46

Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last.

John 19:30b

“It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Romans 6:8

Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.

Mark 15:39

“Truly this man was the Son of God!”

Father, I pray You open our eyes to be able to truly see the Son of God.  Amen

Advent 2018 Day 10

From yesterday, “And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”

Today’s reading:

Luke 23:43

And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

Isaiah 53:7-8, 10a

He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
    yet he opened not his mouth;
like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
    and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
    so he opened not his mouth.
 By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
    and as for his generation, who considered
that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
    stricken for the transgression of my people?

Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him;
he has put him to grief;

Advent 2018 Day 9

The Advent of Christ, The King!

John 18:37

 Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.”

Mark 15:16-19

And the soldiers led him away inside the palace (that is, the governor’s headquarters), and they called together the whole battalion.  And they clothed him in a purple cloak, and twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on him.  And they began to salute him, “Hail, King of the Jews!”  And they were striking his head with a reed and spitting on him and kneeling down in homage to him.

John 19:5

Pilate went out again and said to them, “See, I am bringing him out to you that you may know that I find no guilt in him.”  So Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. Pilate said to them, “Behold the man!”  When the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out, “Crucify him, crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Take him yourselves and crucify him, for I find no guilt in him.”

John 19:14-16a

Now it was the day of Preparation of the Passover. It was about the sixth hour. He said to the Jews, “Behold your King!”  They cried out, “Away with him, away with him, crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.”  So he delivered him over to them to be crucified.

Mark 15:20

And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the purple cloak and put his own clothes on him. And they led him out to crucify him.

John 19:16b-18

So they took Jesus,  and he went out, bearing his own cross, to the place called The Place of a Skull, which in Aramaic is called Golgotha.  There they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, and Jesus between them.

Isaiah 53:4-6

Surely he has borne our griefs
    and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
    smitten by God, and afflicted.
 But he was pierced for our transgressions;
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
    and with his wounds we are healed.
 All we like sheep have gone astray;
    we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
    the iniquity of us all.

This King didn’t come with a celebration of a royal birth or the funeral of a royal, but He is the King that rules my life, not because of anything I have done.  I was a sheep, gone astray.  He took on my chastisement and brought me peace.  All glory and praise to the King of Kings!!

Advent 2018 Day 8

Continuing the Gospel of Christ during this time to reflect on His coming.  And He came, willingly submitting to this…. for you, for me.

Mark 14:55

Now the chief priests and the whole council were seeking testimony against Jesus to put him to death, but they found none.

Mark 14:61b-62a

“Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?” And Jesus said, “I am..”

John 18:17b

“You also are not one of this man’s disciples, are you?” He said, “I am not.”

Matthew 21:38b

‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and have his inheritance.’

Mark 14-63-65

And the high priest tore his garments and said, “What further witnesses do we need? You have heard his blasphemy. What is your decision?” And they all condemned him as deserving death. And some began to spit on him and to cover his face and to strike him, saying to him, “Prophesy!” And the guards received him with blows.

Isaiah 52:14

As many were astonished at you—
his appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance,
and his form beyond that of the children of mankind—

Have you had a chance to share the Gospel during Advent?

Advent 2018 Day 7

In today’s Advent Gospel reading, Christ is in the Garden of Gethsemane, praying, grieving, and conceding to His Father’s will.   As Christ is arrested, his disciples scatter and it leaves an unsettled feeling, but then we see the glorious outpouring love of our Father in Romans.

Matthew 26:38-45

Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me.”  And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.”  And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping. And he said to Peter, “So, could you not watch with me one hour?  Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”  Again, for the second time, he went away and prayed, “My Father, if this cannot pass unless I drink it, your will be done.”  And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy.  So, leaving them again, he went away and prayed for the third time, saying the same words again.  Then he came to the disciples and said to them, “Sleep and take your rest later on.See, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

Zechariah 13:7

“Awake, O sword, against my shepherd,
    against the man who stands next to me,”
declares the Lord of hosts.

“Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered;
    I will turn my hand against the little ones.

Mark 14:50

And they all left him and fled.

Romans 8:32

He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?

 

Father, Thank You for unsettled feelings, and thank You for giving us the Only Way to make things right, in fellowship with You.  Amen

Advent 2018 Day 6

First of all, I want to thank you all for the comments here and on Facebook.  Each one is such an encouragement to me.  Sharing Scripture with you is my heart, first and foremost.

This kit has become one of my top favorites.  I like the rustic, simple feel and the colors seem to be so relaxing to me.  I hope you are all enjoying it and can find ways to use it that will bless your family and friends.

In yesterday’s Advent reading, it was proclaimed that Jesus is “the Christ, the Son of the Living God.”

Today, we see Christ humbling Himself to become a servant, even when He knew He would be betrayed by those He lived with, ate with, prayed with, communed with,  and He still comforts and encourages them.

Today’s reading:

Matthew 16:23

But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me. For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.”

Philippians 2:7

[He] emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, born in the likeness of men.

John 13:4b-5

He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist.  Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

John 13:21b

“Truly, truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.”

Mark 14:27

And Jesus said to them, “You will all fall away, for it is written, ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.’

Mark 14:31

But he said emphatically, “If I must die with you, I will not deny you.” And they all said the same.

John 14:1a

“Let not your hearts be troubled.”

Our Almighty Father, during this Advent season, help us to humble ourselves to serve and encourage others, even those we expect to betray us.  Let us show love to the unlovable, serve those who won’t be grateful, encourage those who are broken and untrustworthy, in the likeness of Christ, all for Your glory.  Amen

Today’s Advent gift is a set of journal cards.  You could print these with your favorite Scripture or a word of encouragement to cheer someone this Christmas season.  As always, just click on the picture to go to the download.

Advent 2018 Day 5

Today, we will continue taking a look at the Gospel of Christ for our fifth day of Advent.

Acts 10:38b

He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.

John 3:14-15

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.

Isaiah 52:13

Behold, my servant shall act wisely;
    he shall be high and lifted up,
    and shall be exalted.

Matthew 16:16-17

Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.

John 14:9a

Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me?

Father God, Thank you for lifting up your Son, on the tree, so that those who believe may have eternal life.  Thank you for revealing Christ to us, the Son of the Living God.  Open the eyes of those who do not yet know Jesus.  This we ask in His precious name, Amen.

Advent 2018 Day 4

Is Christ your Wonderful Counselor, your Mighty God, your Everlasting Father, your Prince of Peace?  Have you been convicted to obey God’s Word and live a life of righteousness?

Let’s take a look at today’s Advent Reading:

Luke 3:23a, 38b

Jesus, when he began his ministry, was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph,…the son of Adam, the son of God.

Luke 4:18-19

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
    because he has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
    and recovering of sight to the blind,
    to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

Isaiah 53:3

He was despised and rejected by men,
    a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
    he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

John 1:11

 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.

For today’s Advent gift, I have made a set of stacked papers.  You will find these in JPG and in layers for ease of placing your pictures on the page.  Click the preview:

Advent 2018 Day 3

 

Since the fall (the sin of Adam and Eve), we have been born unrighteous.  As we saw yesterday, God foretold the coming of Christ when He spoke to the serpent.  Christ coming to earth was meant to be, from the beginning.  God was not caught off guard by the fall.  Christ was not “plan B.”

Romans 5:19

For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.

Matthew 21:37

Finally he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’

Isaiah 9:6

For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
    and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 53:2

For he grew up before him like a young plant,
    and like a root out of dry ground;
he had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
    and no beauty that we should desire him.

Luke 3:22b

“You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”

Father God,
I pray that you will help me to live more obedient and righteous.  Make clear the sin in my own life that I may repent, all for Your glory.  Amen
