A New Advent Devotional from John Piper
Joyous reflection and eager anticipation mark the season of Christmas, as Christians around the world celebrate the coming of their Savior. In Good News of Great Joy: 25 Devotional Readings for Advent, John Piper invites readers to refocus their hearts on Jesus during the Advent season.
In the book’s introduction, David Mathis writes:
Christians throughout the world have their different ways of celebrating Advent and various practical manifestations. Some light candles. Some sing songs. Some eat candies. Some give gifts. Some hang wreaths. Many of us do all of the above. Over the centuries, we have developed many good ways of extending the celebration of Jesus’s coming beyond merely the short twenty-four hours of December 25. The incarnation of the Son of God, “for us and for our salvation,” as the old creed says, is too significant to appreciate in just one day. Indeed, it’s something we will celebrate for all eternity.
Each of the 25 daily readings highlights a Bible passage and a short reflection. Perfect for personal reading and family devotions, these daily readings are a great way to contemplate the magnificence of the promise of salvation through the birth of Jesus Christ throughout the Advent season.
