Advent Devotion December 11, 2017

There are times when we have to name the darkness and brokenness for what it is in hopes to let the light in.  We need to know where we have to shine the light of Christ into our hearts in hopes to release the power of the unknown, or the known that we don’t want to face from gaining more purchase on our lives.  

In what parts of your life are you trying to push away darkness instead of living with it as a teacher and transformer?

A sample is just that it is a little taste or teaser about what is to come.  But we don’t want to mistake the sample for the whole experience or else we will miss out on so much.  The sample is a narrow window into the future that is to come.  So today’s question helps us expand our understanding of the Kingdom of God to encounter the fullness of what God has to offer.

Warm sweaters, friends, family, Bearded Theologians, and reading books to preschoolers are a few of the things that bring us joy.  But are those the things that bring lasting joy?  That is the conversation today as we talk about the new sight Jesus can give us in this season of advent.  

If you are just jumping in we are using Richard Rhor’s book Preparing for Christmas to guide daily conversation.  And you can connect with me at Christ@faitlabonline.com or via social media @cmbishop on twitter and @cmbishop82 everywhere else.

We love to love things, but what happens when those passions get in the way of our relationship with God?  Today we talk about the Kingdom of God and what can and cannot be found of that Kingdom here on earth.  

Today’s question is: What “kingdoms” do you need to let go of before you can enjoy the kingdom of heaven?

What do you allow to define you and where do you look to see the true essence of something or someone?  The words from the prophet Isaiah give us a picture of the perfect and preferred future of creation.  It is one of hope and possibility.  

Today we ask the question, “What study, if any, have you done of the True Self and the false self?”

As you get to know someone your understanding of them changes.  Our first impressions are strong, but they don’t determine everything.  As we get to know the story of those we encounter and build relationship with, we become more mature in our understanding of who they are.  

Today we ask the question: What perceptions of Jesus and Christ do you have that need to be changed?
