Advent Devotional- Hope

If I could sum up what I think about advent I would use the word hope. Not in a wishy-washy ‘I hope this works out’ way, but hope as the bible describes it, the confident expectation of good things to come.

Titus 2:11-13 describes what as Christians we are hoping for:

“For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say ‘No’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope the appearing of the glory of our great God and Saviour, Jesus Christ.”

It’s a word to us today to keep going, keep trusting, keep looking up, to be full of hope.  If through hope we can keep looking to Jesus it will give us a heavenly perspective on the ups and downs of life.
As we celebrate advent and remember when Jesus came for the first time, it reminds me that just as God kept his promise to rescue us, he will keep his promise to return & take us home and for that I am full of hope!
