Day 8

The Second Sunday of Advent

from the Advent 2019: A Thrill of Hope reading plan

Luke 2:13-13

BY She Reads Truth

It is the wonder of angels that the love of Jesus should be set upon poor, lost, guilty humanity. Each believer must, when filled with a sense of Jesus’s love, also be overwhelmed with astonishment that such love should be lavished on an object so utterly unworthy of it.
–Charles H. Spurgeon

Suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:
Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and peace on earth to people he favors!
– Luke 2:13–14

    We may be unworthy in our own eyes. It reminds me of David saying, “what is man that you are mindful of him?”. Yet, God sees us worthy of loving and saving!

Lord, as we enter a new year, I pray that it will be the most powerful, impactful year yet. That we will be shining lights for You. Beacons of hope, for You. Let us enter this season with gratitude and utilize our many blessings to serve others. Thank you Lord for this beautiful life!
