The first week of Advent has begun. The word means “coming” or “arrival” and that is the point of recognizing the Advent season. We watchfully anticipate the Word becoming flesh and dwelling among us (John 1). This year our family is reading this Advent devotional from the website Gospel Centered Discipleship. I am enjoying reading these short devotionals to our family around a candle lit dinner table each evening. The daily practice of focusing on the anticipated coming of Jesus is balm for a soul that trends so easily towards materialism. John 1 is the true happiness for mankind- not the latest electronic gadget.
