Day 21 – Advent
December 20, 2017
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in HOPE that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this HOPE we were saved. Now HOPE that is seen is not HOPE. For who HOPES for what he sees? But if we HOPE for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

During this season of preparation, pray for these servants, the McCleans, as they prepare to share the hope of the Gospel in Southeast Asia.
OPTIONAL ACTIVITY FOR FAMILIES WITH LITTLE ONES
Christmas morning will be here soon. As your little one waits and hopes for the items on his/her list, have them go ahead and make/draw thank-you cards so they will be ready to fill out after Christmas.
