Advent: A Special Devotion from our Kenyan Global Partner

 

“…through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed.” Genesis 22

“But the angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid, for look, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.” Luke 2:10

The good news of Christmas is joy for people of every nation! This announcement was made to Abraham in the book of Genesis and again to the Shepherds in the book of Luke. Our global partners from Mavuno Church in Nairobi, Kenya are bringing our Advent devotions for this week. Today, enjoy this message from Pastor Muriithi and reflect on the joy God has for you in this season.

  1. Like Pastor M said, we see God’s promise to Abraham fulfilled through Jesus. In the past year, how have seen God provide?
  2. Pastor M reminds us that the joy of Christmas is meant to be shared. In this season, how have you blessed others? How have you experienced blessing from other people?
  3. How does the reality that Jesus came near and shared the human condition affect how you? How does it affect your view of God?
