Daily Advent Devotions
Desiring God ministries has put together an e-book of daily devotions which you can get for free. It’s called “Good News of Great Joy”, and is designed especially for Advent 2012 which begins this Sunday. Here’s some of what Desiring God has to say about it:
The team here at Desiring God did a deep dive into our thirty-plus-year reservoir of sermons and articles, and selected brief devotional readings for each day of Advent. Our hope is that God would use these readings to deepen and sweeten your adoration of Jesus this Advent. These daily devotionals correspond to the daily readings in our devotional app Solid Joys, which is available for free download in the iTunes store. If you find short daily reflections like these helpful, we’d hope you’ll keep using Solid Joys once Advent is done. Our prayer is that this new eBook might help you keep Jesus as the center and greatest treasure of your Advent season. The candles and candies have their place, but we want to make sure that in all the Christmas rush and hubbub we adore Jesus above all.
I’ve read the introduction and first daily devotion – it’s meaty and Christ centered. If you’re looking for a simple way to anchor your life during these hectic days, I can commend this booklet to you. It comes in e-pub format for your e-reader but you can also download it in pdf form so you can read it on your computer or print it out for family use. You can download either by going here.
