Preparing To Rejoice In Him // December 12, 2021

Reflection: Advent WK3

WK3: Joy Candle

The third candle of Advent represents Joy.

When Jesus was born, the angels declared that it was cause for great joy.

Luke 2:8-11 says: And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.

Scripture also reminds us that true joy comes from trusting in God.

Romans 15:13 says: May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

We light the third candle of Advent with great joy that comes from Christ alone.
