He fulfills the desire of all who fear him; he also hears their cry, and saves them.
Participate in the full devotional Prepare Ye!: Devotions for Advent, written by Reed Lessing. Copies of the book may be picked up in the BSLC Welcome Center.
Music suggestions to accompany today's devotion include "Savior of the Nations, Come."
Savior of the nations, come;
virgin's son, make here your home.
Marvel now, O heav'n and earth:
God has chosen such a birth.
Not by human flesh and blood,
but the mystic Breath of God,
was the Word of God made flesh,
fruit of woman, blossom fresh.
Wondrous birth—oh, wondrous child—
from his throne, a virgin mild!
Very God, and Mary's son,
eager now his race to run!
From God's heart the Savior speeds,
back to God his pathway leads;
out to vanquish death's command,
back to reign at God's right hand.
Now your manger, shining bright,
hallows night with newborn light.
Night cannot this light subdue;
let our faith shine ever new.
Praise we sing to Christ the Lord,
virgin's son, incarnate Word!
To the holy Trinity
praise we sing eternally!
We will also be hosting weekly worship services and meals during the season of Advent. Join us on Wednesday nights for worship and fellowship.
