    The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5

    A Time to Think

    This is Christmas: not the tinsel, not the giving and receiving, not even the carols, but the humble heart that receives anew the wondrous gift, the Christ. —Frank McKibben

    A Time to Act

    Make the most of this special time of Advent by devoting yourself to Him—open your heart and prepare for His coming.

    A Time to Pray

    Dear Lord, today I celebrate Your presence as a brilliant flame of hope that outshines even the darkest places.

    Scripture for the Week
    The Birth of Jesus Foretold

    26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

    29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”

    34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”

    35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. 37 For no word from God will ever fail.”

    38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.

    Prayer for the Week

    Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of
    darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of
    this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit
    us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come
    again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the
    dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives
    and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and
    for ever. Amen.

    For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10

    I think that underneath where it says 'A Time To Pray' for today(Dec. 8, 2018) that it's supposed to say divine gift of Your Presence
