Advent is a time to help us prepare to accept and appreciate God’s great gifts. Such as: All His Creation, especially the mystery of our being – our heart, mind, and soul His grace, love, forgiveness, and Holy Spirit to help us stay strong in our belief His Word and its truth and power for our lives Jesus, His Son, our Savior, with His total sacrifice for our salvation
The starting point for this collection of material is the lighting of the candle on the First Sunday of Advent. The five Advent candles represent the coming of the light of Christ into the world. I recommend listening to the song, reading the Scripture verses and accompanying thoughts, thinking of and/or sharing your response and then playing the song again and singing along, if you like. I hope that with each day you find a lyric, a verse or an idea to take with you to Christmas and help you carry the flame of God’s love and presence along the way.
The First Week in Advent – Thinking about God and His Promises
Sunday: Listen to the Song – I’m Lighting a Candle – Verse 1 Purple – Prophecy Candle – Hope I am lighting one candle for my Lord. (Repeat line) Thinking of the promises of old. Thinking of the prophesy foretold. Now a flame is burning for my Lord. Now my heart is burning for His presence. Now a flame is burning for my Lord. Scripture – Isaiah 7:14 Jeremiah 33:14-16 Micah 5:2 Thought – What is your faith goal during this Advent season?
