A promise is only as good as the one who makes it. Because we have been let down so many times, it can be difficult to trust promises.

But we need a promise of something better ahead. This year took a heavy toll on us. It opened our eyes to the fog we’ve lived in for so long and made life feel quite dim…dull…and dark. 

During Advent, we remember all the promises God made in the Old Testament. He promised to draw near to his people and save them. He promised the Messiah (the Christ) would come and shine with God’s light of glory, light of righteousness, light of truth, light of life, and light of salvation into our dark world. 

God kept all those promises in Jesus.

Jesus said, ““I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”(John 8:12)

Journey with your church through the promises of God. Invite the people in your life to take this journey with you.

May the light of God in Jesus shine your hearts by his Holy Spirit as you fellowship around the table in your homes.
