“Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory.”
—1 Peter 1:8
This Christ Church NYC Advent Devotional Guide is intended to help us treasure Christ more, as we enter into the journey of God’s people through the ages—a journey of promise and hope.
This guide consists of five weeks of devotionals. Included in each are Bible passages to be carefully considered, questions for personal reflection and response, and additional writings—one from the Bible and one from a historical reflection on the Bible—that are meant to help us meditate more deeply on Jesus.
Each devotional contains group questions and suggestions for use among families. It is all too common for the busyness of the season to overwhelm and crowd out any meaningful reflection of the glory, wonder, and significance of what it is we are celebrating. As you think about and plan for the coming weeks, prayerfully consider what you want this season of Advent to be marked by for your family. What do you want your children to value and remember? How will you be intentional in guarding their time, attention and affections so that Jesus is the focus?
We invite you to use this guide digitally, or to download it and print it off at home. If you would like a hard copy, just ask us about it on Sunday.
We wish you a joyous Advent season!
