You will increase my honor, and comfort me once again.
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 "Comfort, Comfort Ye My People."
"Comfort, comfort now my people;
tell of peace!" So says our God.
Comfort those who sit in darkness
mourning under sorrow's load.
To God's people now proclaim
that God's pardon waits for them!
Tell them that their war is over;
God will reign in peace forever.
For the herald's voice is crying
in the desert far and near,
calling us to true repentance,
since the reign of God is here.
Oh, that warning cry obey!
Now prepare for God a way.
Valleys, rise to greet the Savior;
hills, bow down in humble favor.
Straight shall be what long was crooked,
and the rougher places plain.
Let your hearts be true and humble,
as befits God's holy reign.
For the glory of the Lord
now on earth is shed abroad,
and all flesh shall see the token
that God's word is never broken.
We will also be hosting weekly worship services and meals during the season of Advent. Join us on Wednesday nights for worship and fellowship.
