Advent

A Devotional From Seacoast Church
As we prepare our hearts to celebrate the birth of our Savior and look forward to his coming again, we must first surrender our lives to create space to receive his hope, peace, joy, and love. This is what Advent is about: Remembering the gift we were given and anticipating what he wants to do next. Our four-week Advent study was crafted by Seacoast Church pastors, staff, and contributors as a reminder that Jesus came to bring light to a dark world and he is still working today.

Week 4

Love

Take time this week to reflect on the magnitude of God’s love for us, that he would send his son as a sacrifice for our sins.
I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near. A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel. – Numbers 24:17
Week 3

Joy

Christmas is a joyful celebration of the birth of Jesus. As you spend time reading the Bible this week, look for themes of joy and allow it to reside in your heart.
My lips will shout for joy, when I sing praises to you; my soul also, which you have redeemed. – Psalm 71:23
Week 2

Peace

Because of Jesus, we can have peace in our daily lives, even when it feels unreachable. Take time this week to sit with Jesus, and seek his peace.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6
Week 1

HOPE

The Light Of The World brings us hope for a brighter future. This week, focus on the hope that we have in Jesus.
The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. – John 1:9
If we look forward to something we don’t yet have, we must wait patiently and confidently.Romans 8:25 (NLT)

Promise Of The Coming King

My grandmother loved Christmas – so much so her artificial tree was up and decorated by October. As we entered her home on Christmas Day, the smell of turkey, green beans and yeast rolls wafted throughout the house while the loveliest Christmas songs played on their record player and perfectly…

Waiting For The Miracle

My wife and I have experienced times when life didn’t flourish, and when hope didn’t abound. In 2010, our battle with infertility left us with little faith. Peace and joy felt buried somewhere we couldn’t find.  So, I can relate to Zechariah in Luke 1. He and his wife, Elizabeth,…

A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be raised up every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”Isaiah 40:3-5 (NIV)

A Voice of One Calling

It was John the Baptist, later in first-century Palestine, who would call out “In the wilderness prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our…

By Your Side

One of my fondest memories growing up was riding in the car to and from my Little League baseball games. At the time, we were living in Florida, so we played year-round. The rides back and forth with my dad and brother were far better than the games themselves. (I…
