A Promise Kept

Good Morning Girls- Advent Study

I love focusing on the birth of Jesus because let’s face it, without His birth there would be no death. He came to save us, to die in our place for our sins on an old rugged cross. Without both, birth and death, the penalty of our sins could not be paid.

So I celebrate His birth and the way in which God chose to rescue us. God came, not as a warring King but as an innocent baby. The hope of the world came to us wrapped in swaddling cloth and lying in a manger. The sinless One came to the sinful because though we did not love Him, He loved us anyway.

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
-1 John 4:10-

The Perfect One came into our imperfect, broken world. A world that desperately needed the hope He extends to each and every one of us regardless of our pasts, our age, our race, or our materials possessions. He came to rescue us all. If you find yourself questioning God’s love, meditate on this truth. He came to rescue. If He did not love, He would not have rescued. If He did not love, He would not have died.

So lets embrace the hope Christ’s birth ushers into our lives this Christmas season. The gift of hope for a better tomorrow. The gift of His constant presence.
Though we may not always understand how He works or why He allows some things and not others, be encouraged from today’s verse:

-Jeremiah 33:14-15-

“The days are coming,’ declares The Lord, ‘when I will fulfill the gracious promise I made to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.”

“In those days and at that time
I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David’s line;
he will do what is just and right in the land.”

God never forgets His promises. Though it may take time to see them come to fruition, don’t ever forget God is a promise keeper. He does what He says He will do, in His timing and in His own special way. Jesus is the righteous branch that sprouted from David’s line and His arrival was worth the wait.

    Because of this study I see Christmas in a whole new way! If always knew we celebrate the birth of Jesus but its so much more than the birth its was the start of Gods great plan to save us all and now Christmas is so much more meaningful to me!! Thank u!!

  4. I absolutely loved the first sentence of this devotional reading. Many years ago I heard a minister say that one must travel through the Manger to arrive at the Cross (paraphrased). This struck me. We started the tradition of celebrating Advent and not just Christmas Eve and Day which our children are now carrying into their families. Love your study. Thank you so much.

  5. Angela, I love the GMG studies. This is my 6 th or 7 th! I am really enjoying the advent study.

  6. Our world is filled with chaos and unrest that people seek peace and hope anywhere they can find it. Yet at Christmas people seem more open to hearing the Hope given by God in His precious Son Jesus. Thanks for a study to help us focus on that gift and be ready to share it with those around us this Christmas season.

  7. Is it just me???? My devotion plan on you version does not line up with our reading plan???? This happened to me with the Thanksgiving one too. What am I doing wrong? HELP!

  8. Annie Terry said it best “It is so much more than the birth of Christ. It is the start of God’s great plan to save us all.”I too see Christmas in a whole new way. It means so very much more. I love ah ah moments. Thanks Annie Thanks Good morning girls.
