Looking for Advent: Phil 1-4 “Complete your joy”
The heavens rang aloud that Advent night so very long ago and hymns have shared that joy which we sing at Christmas time. As we read scripture each day we should be looking for advent clues such as joy and Paul ensures that we do.
Paul says “complete my joy.” Be unified n spirit and in purpose. As you seek to complete the gift of joy do it humbly with the purpose of being unified. Look at the Savior as your role model who proclaimed joy wherever he went and in whatever he did. The result? God exalted him and honored him with a name above every name. The prophet Isaiah gave us that name along with other names given to him:
Isa 9:6 For a child has been born to us, a son has been given to us. He shoulders responsibility and is called:
Amazing Adviser, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
This day as you read, keep looking for advent clues to help you celebrate this season with joy!
