~ Just as with opening the doors of an Advent calendar day by day, this Advent devotional will build your anticipation for Christmas so that you can fully absorb and enjoy its central gift—Jesus Christ.
Reflecting on a few short verses each day, this devotional examines the wonderful gifts of grace that we receive through the coming of Christ and belief in his gospel. Author Jared C. Wilson says in his introduction:
“My prayer for you is that examining the diamond of the gospel facet by facet for the next 24 days will find you on Day 25 more awestruck and joy-filled about the glory of Christ our Lord. It is only by beholding Christ’s glory, in fact, that we can be made like him (2 Corinthians 3:18).”
Jared C. Wilson is an assistant professor of pastoral ministry and author in residence at Midwestern Seminary, and the director of the Pastoral Training Center at Liberty Baptist Church, Kansas City. He is also an award-winning author, podcast host, blogger, and conference speaker.
