December 3: Light the first candle

Christmas and the season of Advent are a time when we anticipate the coming of the promised King. As we look forward to Christmas, we remember God's faithfulness in sending His Son, the Messiah, the Savior of the world.

If you have made an Advent wreath, today you can light the first candle. This candle is traditionally called the prophecy candle, reminding us the Jesus' coming was prophesied hundreds of years before he was born. Sit down with your family and read Isaiah 9:1-7 to learn about the fortelling of Jesus' birth. Make this a special time where you pray together as a family or sing a familiar carol. You will all be blessed!

Jesus said, "I am the light of the world." ~John 8:12
