Devotion on Advent, Christian Living, Galatians 4:4. 2 pages.

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons (Galatians 4:4). 

Even though we have been redeemed from sin and death through the death and resurrection of our Savior, we still sin. As even the highest-paid professional players sometimes fumble the ball or miss the basket, in the game of life-Christian mode, we too sometimes mess up. Like those erring athletes we need a “time-out.”

The season of Advent can be considered a “time out” for Christians. During this time (as well as during other times of the church year), the Holy Spirit works in us to reset our clocks and to strengthen our faith as we live for Him.

[To prepare: Make a copy of the “T-I-M-E” clock face found at the end of this devotion. Hang on a wall to display. Make copies of the “TREASURE,” “INSPIRE,” “MEDITATE,” and “EVANGELIZE” word cards found at the end of this devotion. Cut out each card. Have adhesive tape ready to attach words to the clock at the proper time in the devotion.]
