During this Advent season, I wanted to send out several short thoughts each week for our church families to meditate on. These are intended to be a quick thought based on our sermon series which allows for deeper reflection and conversations during your week.
Romans 13:12 - “Put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.”
Advent reminds us that Christ brings us hope not only in the sense that we are no longer slaves to sin. Christ also brings us hope that we can personally and passionately pursue the Kingdom of God and advance the Gospel on Earth. Since we have this freedom and holy mandate from our King, consider these questions today:
In what ways am I personally advancing the Gospel?
What are some avenues God has given me which He may be calling me to use to spread the Good News?
What fears, insecurities, anxieties, or faith struggles might God be calling me to surrender to Him in sharing and living out my faith?
My prayer for you today is that you are reminded of your purpose for living—to glorify God—and this hope would drive you to proactively spread the Good News of Christ to others.
Each week this blog will be updated with a word for the week from my current studies.
