ADVENT DAY 23 // Hebrews 1:1–4⁠
.⁠
This passage is a powerful summary of who Jesus is and what Jesus came to do. He is God’s final word, the One all the prophets in the Old Testament were looking forward to. In this advent season, a season marked by anticipation, we ponder⁠
the Old Testament passages that the author of Hebrews speaks about. The promise of a Savior is first seen all the way back in Genesis 3:15, when God promised to crush the head of the serpent through the seed of the woman. Though Adam and Eve sinned, God made known His plan to redeem them. The rest of the Old Testament anticipates the fulfillment of this⁠
promised plan of redemption.⁠
.⁠
Amid sin, ruin, and exile, prophets like Isaiah encouraged the people of God by telling of a Messiah who would come to rule and reign forever. However, after the prophecy of Malachi, there were four hundred years of silence. Then, at just the right time, God sent His Son. The One who is “the radiance of the glory of God,” the sovereign King who upholds the universe “by the word of his power,” came to us.⁠
.⁠
Jesus came and accomplished our redemption, or as the author of Hebrews puts it, He made “purification for sins.” Through His work on the cross, Christ delivered us from sin, self, and the wrath of God, and then He “sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.” His work was finished. ⁠
.⁠
As we celebrate Christ and all that He accomplished at His first coming, we also look forward to His second advent. We anticipate the day when the One seated at the right hand of the Father comes again to bring His church into the presence of God for all eternity.⁠
.⁠
Praying in Light of Today’s Passage: Thank God for keeping His promises of redemption by sending His Son for our salvation.⁠

ADVENT DAY 22 // Ruth 4:14⁠
.⁠
You may remember from the beginning of Ruth (see Day 1) that this Israelite woman named Naomi was barren. In fact, she did not want to be called Naomi but rather Mara, which means bitter, because of how the Lord had dealt bitterly with her. So Naomi is bitter and barren, and her husband and sons have died. All she has is a daughter-in-law from a cursed people known as the Moabites.⁠
.⁠
Now, three chapters later, the Lord is being blessed for the way He has dealt with Naomi. In His grace, the Lord has blessed her with a redeemer (Boaz) and her life is entirely new. Through the marriage of Boaz and Ruth, Naomi has a son, a daughter-in-law, and a grandson. And this grandson will be the father of Jesse who will be the father of David. That makes Naomi’s grandson the grandfather of King David, Israel’s most famous king, and, more importantly, from whose line King Jesus will come (Matthew 1:1). You could not write a better script! ⁠
.⁠
You may feel at times like Naomi did in Ruth 1––bitter, barren, hurt, despairing, and hopeless. But if you’re trusting in Jesus, you can persevere in hope because bitterness will not have the last word; bareness will not be the end of the story; hopelessness and despair will not be the final refrain. Through His death and resurrection, Christ has conquered death itself. Those who hope never need to despair. ⁠

In this fallen world, times of mourning will come. But “he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4), and He will have the last word. There is coming a day when sorrow and death will be no more (Revelation 21:1–4). God has the power to turn mourning into dancing, bitterness into blessing.⁠
.⁠
Praying in Light of Today’s Passage: Pray that your hope will be fixed on Christ so that you might persevere in the midst of trials and suffering.⁠

ADVENT DAY 17 // Isaiah 9:6⁠
.⁠
Yesterday we saw that Isaiah’s prophesied child would be called “Wonderful Counselor.” Today we consider the second title given to this child, this son who was given for the redemption of God’s people. His name shall be called “Mighty God.”⁠
.⁠
Clearly this is not a normal son or a normal child. This is God in the flesh. This is the astounding miracle of Christmas. In fact, I would argue that this is the most astounding miracle in all of the Bible, even greater than the resurrection from the dead, greater than calming wind and waves, or turning loaves of bread and fish into enough food for thousands of people.⁠
.⁠
Of course Jesus can calm the wind and the waves; of course He can conquer death. He’s God. The most astounding miracle is that God took on human flesh and came to dwell among us. This child born to Joseph and Mary was both fully man and fully God. Talk about a mystery!⁠
.⁠
But even in the midst of the mystery, we see the beauty of the gospel, for this is the only way we can be saved from our sins. We need One who can fully identify with us, One who knows what it’s like to be tempted yet without giving in to sin (Hebrews 4:15). At the same time, we need One who can fully identify with God, who is God, who can bear the divine judgment due our sin.⁠
.⁠
The only person who fits that description is Jesus, for He is fully man and fully God. Other religions deny this truth, but for followers of Christ, this is our hope and peace. Christ is the Son given to us, the child born for our salvation. He is rightly called “Mighty God.”⁠
.⁠
Praying in Light of Today’s Passage: Pray that God would open the eyes of people from other religions, such as Islam, who deny that Jesus is the fully divine Son of God.⁠

ADVENT DAY 11 // Psalm 74:1–3⁠
.⁠
This is a powerful, heartfelt prayer born from a painful, hurting situation. God’s people are crying out for Him to remember them. Maybe you can relate to this feeling of abandonment. Have you ever felt forgotten by God? If so, what did your prayer sound like?⁠
.⁠
When you stop and consider the words of Psalm 74:1–3, they sound a little bold. To essentially say to the omniscient God of the universe, “Do you even remember us?” is quite surprising. However, the issue is not whether God has literally forgotten His people. Rather, this is God’s people calling on God to be faithful to the promises He has made. That’s what the term “remember” means.⁠
.⁠
As God’s people, we know that God is faithful and that He will keep His promises. When we pray, we are bringing those promises before God and asking Him to show Himself faithful in a particular way. This kind of prayer is pleasing to God, and it’s found throughout the Old Testament. For example, when God’s people were slaves in Egypt, they cried out to God for rescue and it says that God “remembered”: “And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. God saw the people of Israel—and God knew.” (Exodus 2:24–25)⁠
.⁠
God’s people are right to call on Him to keep His promises, for He is faithful. How much more should we pray this way today, since we have seen God’s promised redemption fulfilled through the death and resurrection of Christ. Regardless of how abandoned we feel, we can be confident that God will never forget us.⁠
.⁠
Praying in Light of Today’s Passage: Pray on behalf of the persecuted church across the world, that they would rely on God’s promises when they feel forgotten and abandoned.⁠

ADVENT DAY 10 // Psalm 40:6–10⁠
.⁠
God set up a system of sacrifices and offerings for His Old Testament people, Israel, in order to atone for, or cover over, their sin. These sacrifices and offerings paid the price for sin, which is death (Romans 6:23), and thereby averted the wrath and judgment of God. However, we know from the book of Hebrews that these Old Testament sacrifices were ultimately insufficient to pay the full price for people’s sin against God. “For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins” (Hebrews 10:4).⁠
.⁠
Knowing this Old Testament background helps us see the beauty of today’s passage. Psalm 40 talks about one who delights to do the will of God, someone with the law of God written on his heart. This is a description of the One who came to be a perfect sacrifice, a perfect offering for our sin. And we know from the rest of Scripture that only Jesus Christ fits this description.⁠
.⁠
Christ’s delight was to do the will of God perfectly, and He in fact did God’s will without sinning (Hebrews 4:15). The law of God was written on His heart and He obeyed the Father completely during His earthly ministry. Therefore, Christ alone could be a sacrifice for sinners by offering His life on the cross to pay the price for our sin. ⁠
.⁠
The author of Hebrews cites today’s passage in order to show that Christ’s sacrifice is superior to all the sacrifices and offerings that came before (Hebrews 10:5–14). Those sacrifices had to be offered repeatedly, but not so with the sinless Son of God. He was, as Hebrews 10:14 tells us, a sufficient sacrifice: “For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified” ⁠
.⁠
Praying in Light of Today’s Passage: Give thanks to Christ that He perfectly obeyed God and died in order to atone for your sins. ⁠

ADVENT 09 // Psalm 2:10–12⁠
.⁠
The psalmist tells us to “Kiss the Son,” a reference to a coming heir from the royal line of David. This “Son” deserves worship, homage, and praise, which means that He is more than just a human king. This is a divine king who is worthy of all worship. He will be the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the One to whom all the kings and rulers and peoples of the earth will bow in worship. ⁠
.⁠
Based on the entirety of Scripture, we know that this “Son” is none other than Jesus Christ. As a result of Christ’s humble obedience unto death, God has declared Christ’s supremacy over all. Here’s how Paul puts it in Philippians 2:9–11: “Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is⁠
Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”⁠
.⁠
This means that, one day, at the name of Jesus, President Xi in China, Prime Minister Modi in India, Prime Minister Netanyahu in Israel, Chancellor Merkel in Germany, and President Trump in the United States, are all going to bow and worship King Jesus. ⁠
.⁠
The question is not whether they are going to bow and worship Him. The question is whether they will do it now or do it when it’s too late. And that’s not just a question for them. It’s a question for each of us as well. Have you bowed the knee to King Jesus and called Him Lord over all and Lord over your life? Have you taken refuge under His rule? ⁠
.⁠
Psalm 2:12 says, “Blessed are all who take refuge in him.” If you’ve never trusted in this King who died on the cross and rose from the dead in victory over sin and the grave, then you can do that now. Turn from your sin and bow to His lordship. Believe in Him and find refuge. ⁠
.⁠
Praying in Light of Today’s Passage: Pray that God would give you a heart that gladly submits to Christ’s lordship, either for the first time or (if you’re already a Christian) in increasing measure by the power of the Spirit.⁠

ADVENT DAY 08 // Ruth 2:12⁠
.⁠
As we continue with the story of Ruth (see Day 1), we now hear Boaz speaking to Ruth as she is working in his field. Ruth has returned from a hopeless situation in Moab back to a barley harvest in Bethlehem. In order to provide for her mother-in-law (Naomi) and herself, Ruth “happened to come” to the field of Boaz, a relative of Naomi’s husband (Ruth 2:3).⁠
.⁠
Boaz has heard about Ruth’s loyal service to her mother-in-law, Naomi, and he wants the Lord to “repay” her. He speaks of the Lord as the One “under whose wings you [Ruth] have come to take refuge” (Ruth 2:12). This is a beautiful picture of what it means to trust in the Lord, and it is just as true for us today as it was for Ruth.⁠
.⁠
Those who trust in Christ for salvation find refuge under God’s wings. This reality should bring great comfort, regardless of what’s going on in your life or what the world is bringing against you. There is no need for anxiety or fear under the wings of the God of the universe. He is your protector and provider, your refuge and strength. Through Christ, you can make the prayer of Psalm 57:1 your own prayer to God:⁠
.⁠
“Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for in you my soul takes refuge; in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, till the storms of destruction pass by.”⁠
.⁠
As you pray this prayer for yourself, consider also praying it on behalf of persecuted Christians around the world. In the midst of trials and danger, these brothers and sisters need to know that God is their refuge. Regardless of whether they are rescued from temporal harm, they are safe from the storm of God’s eternal judgment because of Christ’s death on the cross.⁠
.⁠
Praying in Light of Today’s Passage: Ask the Lord to sustain you as you find refuge under His wings, and pray that He would sustain Christians around the world who are persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ.⁠
