Bible Reading: John 20:19-23; Rev. 19; Job 40; Zechariah 1-5

Bible Reading: John 21:1-14; Rev. 21; Job 41:12-34; Zechariah 10-14

Re-read Psalm 133 and get out your notes from yesterdays
sermon. As you look over your notes, reflect on what was
most encouraging to you and thank the Lord for that encouragement. Ask yourself, what are you doing to promote
unity in the Body of Christ at Canyon? In what ways were
you convicted yesterday that you have done something to
harm the unity of the Body? Is there anyone whose forgiveness you need to seek in order to restore unity? Take
time to pray for the unity of the people of Canyon Bible
Church. Pray specifically that all of us would be patient,
humble people who extend forgiveness and grace to one
another freely and carefully pursue Gods will together,
united by Christ and his gospel for the glory of God.

Gods will was that though Christ was rich, yet for your
sake he became poor. The No Vacancy signs over all
the motels in Bethlehem were for your sake. For your
sake he became poor (2 Corinthians 8:9).
God rules all thingseven motel capacitiesfor the
sake of his children. The Calvary road begins with a No
Vacancy sign in Bethlehem and ends with the spitting
and scoffing of the cross in Jerusalem.
And we must not forget that he said, He who would
come after me must deny himself and take up his cross
(Matthew 16:24).

The following excerpt was taken from John Pipers Good

News of Great Joy: Daily Readings for Advent:
No Detour from Calvary
And while they were there, the time came for her to
give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son
and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him
in a manger, because there was no place for them in
the inn. Luke 2:67

Now you would think that if God so rules the world as to

use an empire-wide census to bring Mary and Joseph to
Bethlehem, he surely could have seen to it that a room was
available in the inn.
Yes, he could have. And Jesus could have been born into
a wealthy family. He could have turned stone into bread
in the wilderness. He could have called 10,000 angels to
his aid in Gethsemane. He could have come down from
the cross and saved himself. The question is not what
God could do, but what he willed to do.

No Detour from Calvary Continued:

No Detour from Calvary Continued:

We join him on the Calvary road and hear him say,
Remember the word that I said to you, A servant is not
greater than his master. If they persecuted me, they will
persecute you (John 15:20).
To the one who calls out enthusiastically, I will follow
you wherever you go! (Matthew 8:19). Jesus responds,
Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the
Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head (Matthew 8:20).
Yes, God could have seen to it that Jesus have a room
at his birth. But that would have been a detour off the
Calvary road.
Think over this advent devotional from the last three days.
Pray and thank the Lord for the gift of Christ and that there
was no detour from Calvary.
