Advent 2018 Day 2

I am so happy you stopped in for today’s Advent reading.  I pray God uses today’s Scripture to draw us all a little closer to Himself.

Genesis 3:15

I will put enmity between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and her offspring;
he shall bruise your head,
    and you shall bruise his heel.”

 Luke 1:28

And he came to her and said, “Greetings, O favored one, the Lord is with you!”

Luke 1:30-32a

 And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.  And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.  He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. 

Luke 2:6-7

And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth.  And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.

Luke 2:10-11

 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Heavenly Father, thank you for sending  your Son to earth as the Good News of great joy for all people.   Help us see opportunities to share that joy with those we experience today.   Amen

First Sunday of Advent Freebie

This year, I want to do something a bit different for my Advent Bible Study.  I have been reading Because He Loves Me by Elyse Fitzpatrick.  In her book, she emphasizes the Gospel, I mean, really breaks it down and draws attention to how we live out the Gospel in our everyday lives.  In the beginning of the book, she illustrates God’s love for us through the Gospel, and uses nothing but Scripture.  It was one of the most beautiful presentations of the Gospel I have witnessed.  I felt like it was something I needed to share this Christmas, because after all, that is what Christmas is all about:

Ephesians 1:3-6 

Spiritual Blessings in Christ Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.

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.

 Romans 3:22-23

The righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

Genesis 12:3

 “I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Philippians 2:5-7

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.

I pray that we can begin to see the depth of Christ’s love for us through the foretelling of His coming, His Birth, Life, Death, and Resurrection, this Advent Season.  Amen

I began the Advent Freebies last year, with 3 kits, broken up and given over the course  of Advent.  This year, I have taken those freebies and turned them into larger kits, and I am giving the “extras” that will coordinate with that kit.  I have made several more elements and backgrounds and those will be available in my store for 50% OFF, tomorrow.

For today’s freebie, I have a set of Cluster Frames.  They match Scandinavian Christmas.  I hope you enjoy.  To go to the download, just click on the preview.  These will only be available for FREE until Christmas.

We Believe Blog Train

This month’s train is titled, “In All Circumstances,” with 1 Thessalonians 5:18 as the inspiration:
“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Often, when our circumstances aren’t what we want them to be, it is difficult to find ways to be thankful.  This verse reminds me that God is absolutely in control, above all, and even in times that are devastating, I am to give thanks.
