Advent Devotional: Fourth Sunday of Advent, December 23


“Peace” by Andrew Weatherly

He has helped his servant Israel,
in remembrance of his mercy,
according to the promise he made to our ancestors,
to Abraham and to his descendants forever.
— Luke 1:54–55

Night divine

Father sky
Appears in angel voices
Glorious sound from afar.
Shadows and stars appear
On the night Christmas Eve
Mother earth alights again;
comes alive
Come embrace on bended knee
The wonders of her aerial views.
— Andrew Weatherly

When was the last time you felt the wonder and awe of the divine gift of Jesus given to you? 

Loving God, may we find ourselves falling on our knees in humble worship to you who has given us so much. Amen.
