Throughout the season of Advent we encounter the message of Christmas. In shopping venues, social media posts, and movies we hear the message of Good News. In the story, “A Christmas Carol”, Charles Dickens used the spirits to collectively share a message of how Ebenezer Scrooge could live a joy-filled meaningful life. In scripture, angelic messengers spoke to Zechariah, Joseph, Mary, the shepherds, and wise men of good news of a great joy that had come. Listen for the message of joy this Christmas and join us as we proclaim, “God bless us, every one!”
Grow in faith and prepare your heart for Christmas this Advent season with the Daily Devotionals.
