Cru's 2020 Advent Devotional
A King is Coming
2020 has been quite a year.
With a global pandemic, natural disasters and sociopolitical tension came weariness and a widespread longing for relief.
What many don’t realize is that this is what Advent is about — the waiting, the longing, the hope that something better is on its way. It’s about God promising and fulfilling His promises of a better world, a new kingdom and a perfect King.
More than 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ was born into humble circumstances. He lived a perfect life and laid down that life as a sacrifice so that all who believe in Him will have access to God’s coming kingdom. So that you can be His.
And then He rose to life again and returned to His heavenly throne.
This was a fulfillment of a promise God had been making for centuries, and it was followed by a second, even more wonderful, promise: Jesus will come back again and make all things right and new.
This season, we remember the true meaning of Advent: the great joy God has promised for those who hope in Him.
Join us, beginning November 29, as we study God’s Word and prepare to celebrate Jesus’ birth on Christmas Day, knowing a greater celebration is yet to come.
It’s fun counting down to Christmas Day! We eagerly anticipate the big celebration. But as we rush to keep up with jam-packed schedules and shopping lists, do we risk missing the opportunity to prepare for Christ’s arrival?
As we look forward to Christ’s arrival during Advent, we’re also reminded to look back. Thousands of years ago, an entire nation waited to be rescued ...
Are you longing for God, but struggling to fit Him in? It is not too late. God need not be fit in. He is in already.
Beginning four Sundays before Christmas we focus on advent, a season of reflection and longing for the coming King. Join us in celebrating the coming Savior with this easy-to-follow advent series.
Download our Advent devotional series and learn what this holiday season is really all about as we prepare our hearts for Christmas.
This Christmas season, use the Advent Devotional on the My Cru platform to connect with the people in your small group and those who you are discipling.
Drawing on truths embedded in many Christmas songs you’ve heard (and probably some you haven’t), this daily Advent devotional ties our favorite holiday tunes directly back to Jesus.
In Advent, we remember that Jesus came into our broken world and look forward to the day when He will return to bring peace, equity and joy. This devotional will help you read God’s Word, reflect on His promises and respond in daily life.
