In this season when our days draw shorter and our nights stretch long and
dark, we turn our thoughts toward light and glory. It is Advent, four weeks
in which we reflect upon the arrival of Jesus, the light of the world, dawning
among us who live “in the land of deep darkness” (Isa. 9:2). It is a time in which
we also orient our hearts toward his promised return, when he will come in glory
and his kingdom will never end.
You can use these devotional readings on your own, with your family, or with a group.
