The Chronological Bible and Advent

Chronological Bible and Advent 2

Hey y’all,

I have so been enjoying my Chronological Bible reading in light of Advent and preparing for the birth of Jesus.  Which made me think of Jan 1, 2015.  Which made me think of starting the reading all over again.  Which made me think of you, dear reader, and how I want you to join me in this journey come 2015.  But first, back to the Advent/Chronological Bible connection.

I love how I see little Sursees all through the readings.  Like today, in Romans 8:26, I was reminded how the Holy Spirit is a gift to me.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weaknesses.  We do npt know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.

What a gift!

And earlier in Romans 8:18, I am reminded that,

our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Joy to the World!  The Lord has come! is what my heart sang as I read this passage.  I love how when I prepare my heart for the Christmas season, He shows Himself to me in new ways, reminding me this world is not all there is.

And when I read this:

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  Romans 8:9

I am thankful for the baby Jesus who came into the world to grow up and then die and save us from our sins. Awesome reading during Christmas.  Reminds me why the baby Jesus is so amazing.

What are you doing for Advent to prepare your heart? To slow down and savor? Do tell.

Oh, and do you want to join me this next year and read through the Chronological Bible?  Get yours now and be ready when the calendar turns. A real Sursee to give yourself this December.
