If you’re joining me for Advent 2015, then today we start “week one, day one” of Then Came Jesus. Here’s a little video to introduce the study:

I’m really looking forward to “purposefully remembering” Jesus this month as we head towards Christmas day. Because, y’all, life is loud, especially this time of year. It pulls on us. It demands of us. It throws red and green glittery curve balls that we didn’t expect. But God reigns over it all. And we get to choose to live purposefully. We get to choose to remember and find rest in Him and His promises, regardless of circumstance.
So this week in the study we’ll step back in time to the announcement of the coming Jesus. We’ll think through the perspectives and reactions of those directly affected by the news, specifically Mary, Joseph, and the shepherds. And we’ll remember that NOTHING is impossible with our God. Nothing.
Practically, as the host of the study, I plan to post here on my blog on Mondays and Fridays. On Mondays (Lord willing) I will have a short video that sets up the week. And on Fridays I will ask you to share in the comments what God has been speaking to you that week. (Some of you are bloggers and if you want to link up on Fridays to a blog post about the study, that would be great too!)
That said, I’ll be back here on Friday. In the meantime make your way through week one of Then Came Jesus. I’m praying that God surprises us with His awesome, gracious, glorious love this week as we spend time “purposefully remembering” Jesus.
Fill me, Lord…
How do you want your Advent 2015 to look this year?
