The Christmas season often catches us unprepared and overwhelmed with all the things we have to do. So much so, that we don’t prepare our hearts to worship at Christmas. I often start preparing my heart by listening to Christmas music. In the same way, God has given us songs in the gospel of Luke to accomplish this heart preparation.
I have written an advent devotional to help prepare your heart for worshipping Christ this Christmas. This devotional will cover four of those “songs” in the four weeks leading up to Christmas Day. Week one we will consider the song of Mary, as she visits Elizabeth. Week two looks at the song of Zechariah, after the birth of his son John. In week three, we will hear the angels sing as they visit the shepherds in the field. And in week four, we will hear Simeon sing of the Savior, and we will meditate on two of the more familiar Christmas carols.
You will find on this blog devotionals for Monday-Saturday of each week, beginning on Nov. 27th, along with a devotional for Christmas Eve. Through these brief, daily Scripture meditations, I hope that you will be encouraged towards a greater focus on our Savior this Christmas, so that you are able to sing along with Mary and the angels, “My soul magnifies the Lord! Glory to the newborn King!”
