Advent 2018 is underway this year, and many Christians are in search of devotional tools to help them focus on Jesus this holiday season. One of my goals is to point you to good books and other great resources to benefit you and the people close to you as you pursue a deeper relationship with Christ.
Love Came Down At Christmas by Sinclair Ferguson brings the message of Christ’s love to you in a unique and special way. Rather than simply focusing on traditional Christmas themes or sections of scripture, Ferguson chose to walk readers through 1 Corinthians 13—the Bible’s famous love chapter.
He reminds us that the words of 1 Corinthians 13 can profoundly move us during the Advent season. We are shown that “when you slow them down, and read them phrase by phrase, and apply them to yourself, they transpose into a different key altogether. They cease to be rhetorically pleasing and emotionally soothing; instead they become an analysis of your spiritual life. They are deeply challenging” (p. 11).
Each day, you get a little bit of exposition, Ferguson’s warm personality and affectionate teaching style, and Christ-focused application. You also get some helpful reflection questions and poetic prayers from various saints throughout church history. The concise, truth-packed chapters are a wonderful way to start each day leading up to Christmas.
If you want a soul-searching, heart-warming devotional this Advent season, look no further than Love Came Down At Christmas. It’s still early, so you can order your copy on Kindle or paperback today!
