This is the second week of Advent! Advent is a time of reflection and anticipation. Not only do we celebrate the gift of our Savior and Lord, but we anticipate the His return!
This week we focus on Peace! Jesus came to bring to you peace. Not the peace that the world looks for, the absence of war or conflict, but rather the peace that passes all understanding. The knowledge that He is in control and that as you surrender your life to Him He will take care of you regardless of the circumstances swirling around you.
As you spend time reading this week consider writing down some notes about what you have read. After you are done reading and praying go back over your notes and underline what point you to this week’s theme: peace. Place a * next to any note that relates to the story of Jesus at Christmas.
Finally, praise the Lord for the Peace that He has given you!
