Love: Advent Devotional - Week Four

Welcome to week four of this Advent season!  I have put together a series of musical devotionals that take us on a journey from Advent to Epiphany.  Each devotional in the series will include a visual word cloud that I hope aides in your reflection time, a Scripture passage, a music video, and a prayer.  If you missed last week's devotion or are just joining us, click Week One, Week Two and Week Three.


So take a minute to light a candle and reflect on today's message of Love.


Scripture:  Isaiah 52:7-10 (New International Version, ©2010)
 7 How beautiful on the mountains
   are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace,
   who bring good tidings,
   who proclaim salvation,
who say to Zion,
   “Your God reigns!”
8 Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices;
   together they shout for joy.
When the LORD returns to Zion,
   they will see it with their own eyes.
9 Burst into songs of joy together,
   you ruins of Jerusalem,
for the LORD has comforted his people,
   he has redeemed Jerusalem.
10 The LORD will lay bare his holy arm
   in the sight of all the nations,
and all the ends of the earth will see
   the salvation of our God.

Song:  "Love Came Down At Christmas" by Jars Of Clay from "Christmas Songs"



Prayer: You know us, O Christ and still you love us.  You know our strengths and our weaknesses but you remain close, guiding us on our way.  May the peace that you bring, which is beyond our knowing, keep our hearts and minds in you, Christ Jesus.  Amen.
