Advent 2017: Joy to the World: Day 21

Grace Day


Today's Text: Luke 1:68

Scripture Reading: Luke 1:68

Advent is a season of anticipation and celebration. We long for the promised Savior’s return, even as we rejoice that He has already come to us. Use this day to pause and reflect on this verse from Zechariah’s prophecy in Luke about the Lord’s promise to redeem His people.

Blessed is the Lord, the God of Israel,
because he has visited
and provided redemption for his people.
—Luke 1:68


  • Reading through today’s verse and the comments, the song “How many Kings” kept playing in my head. A great reminder there is no greater show of love and grace then the humble birth of our Savior.

  • Jennifer Anapol

    I’m so thankful that God came down to us that first Christmas and that He found me on Christmas Eve 15 years ago.

  • His grace and mercy is wonderful! How He can love me even after all the missteps I’ve taken is unfathomable.

  • Kasey Summers


  • Thank you for sending your Son for our redemption Lord.

  • Thank you, Lord, for coming into our lives. Blessed to have your love and grace! ♡

  • Christina Ballard

    I’m grateful that God allowed a way for us to Him. That He was so thoughtful in His plan

  • Crystal Mendez

    How thankful I am God brought redemption to earth in Jesus, and that His mercy is available to everyone every day.

  • CJ Avakian

    I love having this day to reflect on the verse in Zechariah. It’s really nice to have a grace day and meditate on one verse!

  • There was a lot of hoopla this week over the report that there were UFO’s spotted and the thought that we might have had an extraterrestrial visitor. It made me sad that so many were excited about that and not the truth and reality that the God of the Universe did visit us 2000 years ago and is with us today. Still, in our hearts we know that He did and we rejoice together!

  • My thoughts exactly. What a time of wonder, and of love. There are no words to express

  • Churchmouse

    It’s mind blowing that the God of the universe would come to visit us. It’s going to be even more mind blowing when He comes to stay and rule over the new earth. I can’t even imagine. I can only worship.
