Advent Devotional

To follow along with lighting the Advent Wreath and for weekly reflections and ponderings during the season of Advent, please download our Advent Devotional Guide.

Questions to Ponder:

1. In one sentence, what is your definition of justice?

2. Reflect on Luke 11:37-46. What do you hear and see in this encounter with Jesus?

3. In Luke 11:42, Jesus said “do not neglect justice and the love of God.” In what ways do we neglect justice and the love of God in our lives?

4. In the sermon, we heard that there are four interwoven themes to biblical justice. What does each look like, in your life? Where do you long to grow?
a. Radical Generosity
b. Universal Equality
c. Significant life changing Advocacy for the poor
d. Responsibility, both communal and individual
e. With respect to “doing justice” (Micah 6:8), how does following Jesus allow us to discern, to live as stewards of God’s grace and to act as agents of justice?


Closing Prayer:
Loving God, open our ears to hear your word and draw us closer to you, that the whole world may be one with you as you are one with us in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
