Devotionals

By Mark Abdon

Credit to my parents; they raised me to be fairly independent.  And I think they succeeded.  By age 21, I had driven across the country by myself a couple times, lived abroad for a semester where few people spoke English, could do my own taxes, and add the proper amount of hot water to Ramen noodles.

Welcome to week 1 of our Summer Weekly Devotional! Each week, we'll be posting a devotional written by Greek IV staff. Set aside 5 or 10 minutes to read the devotional and reflect on the passage. Our hope is that you will grow in your faith this summer through regular time in God's Word. In today's passage, Jesus is with his disciples at his friend Simon's house.

A few weeks ago I went to visit my grandfather. My parents & I sat down in the living room after a lovely dinner & began to watch a Hallmark movie. About thirty minutes into the movie my grandfather walked in.

He said, “Are we at the conflict yet?"

We all began to laugh & said, “What do you mean?"

The third week of Advent is "Gaudete Sunday" or "Joy Sunday". The Christmas season is filled with a mix of emotions. Maybe you passed your exams with flying colors or maybe you just failed a final and the stress is boiling over. Or perhaps you're excited to go home and see your family, but nervous about handling questions about your future.

My church celebrates Advent with the lighting of a candle on the Advent wreath every Sunday. Each Sunday, a family stands up fron to lead us in God's Word. The children, rather than the parents, read out what the candle means.

This past Sunday marked the beginning of the season of Advent, the four-weeks leading up to the birth of Jesus.
