Gentle & Lowly
This week we begin advent, the season of waiting and anticipation as we move towards celebrating the birth of Christ. For our Advent theme, we are providing a copy of the book Gentle and Lowly, by Dane Ortlund to each family in the church. You are encouraged to use it as a devotional through the advent season. Our themes for the next four Sundays will arise out of this book and be centered on the idea of Jesus Himself being a precious gift we have received as Christians. As Ortlund states, “Christians know what Jesus Christ has done – but who is He?” It is my prayer we will discover anew the gift of who Jesus is which informs what Jesus has done for us. Today, we will begin a brief series looking at the gift of Jesus. Today we will focus on Jesus’ gift of His heart to us; He is gentle and lowly.
