The Dawning of Indestructible Joy: Daily Readings for Advent (by John Piper)
Advent is for adoring Jesus.
The Christmas season is one of the busiest times of the year. But it is also a season of reflection and preparation for that special day when we mark Immanuel's coming - the arrival of our eternal God in our own frail humanity.
This is the greatest of history's many wonders, something too stupendous to celebrate just on one day. Advent is a way of lengthening and intensifying the joy of Christmas.
These 25 brief devotional readings from John Piper begin on December 1 and carry us to Christmas Day. Our hope is that God would use these meditations to deepen and sweeten your adoration of Jesus and help you keep him at the center of your Christmas season.
This is my prayer for you this Christmas -
that you would experience the fullness of Christ;
that you would know in your heart the outpouring of grace upon grace;
that the glory of the only Son from the Father would shine into your hearts;
that you would be amazed that Christ can be so real to you.
