Christmas Conversion

Scripture Reference: Luke 1:5-17

Today, Advent begins in silence. Like Zechariah, we wait for God to heal the deep wounds of our lives. Sometimes caused by parents, children, and our own disobedience, these wounds show up as disrespect for authority, cold heartedness, fear, and rebellion. Advent is a season to heal those wounds in families, friendships, and church.

Today, we repented and sought forgiveness. We prayed for parents, children, and the disobedient to turn to the Lord this season. We admitted our own disrespect for authority and need to change. When God begins to “turn the hearts of parents to children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous” (Luke 1:17), we are prepared for the Lord. We are ready to come home for Christmas.
