This Sunday's message: The Song of Zechariah

December 1

Todays reading: Luke 1:35-40; Deuteronomy 33:26-29; Psalm 29:1-11; John 15:1-8
Welcome to our December reading plan. This month will be a little different than what we’ve done in the past, but the purpose remains the same – to encourage you to get into God’s Word systematically and engage with one another in the reading. A major shift in our plan this month is that it is designed for each day of the month, so weekend reading is also included. Our Reading Plan is adapted from Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth’s devotional, “The First Songs of Christmas,” which also inspired our Christmas Series.

Our opening passage can be looked at as a call to worship. When one dissects this familiar story, we can easily be distracted by the familiarity and forget to notice that God did the seemingly impossible – God the Son born into human existence to a teenage girl and exchanged His throne for a feeding trough. Just as we saw Sunday, when we approach the season, we must look at this event through the eyes of Mary, amazed and humbled at the arrival of the Savior. This season – for some – may feel impossible, but when we surrender to God, He can get us through a difficult season, for nothing is impossible for God. In the familiarity of the season, find some ways to refocus your attention back to Jesus.
