2023 Advent - Day 8


After you have lit the candle of Peace, prepare yourself for worship, listen to the following song, and sing along if you know it: "In the Hands of Christ my King" by Austin Stone Worship

As you worship, meditate on the lordship of Jesus. 


Read the following passage: Psalm 89: 1-4 

As you study, consider how the promise of the coming Messiah leads the Ezrahite to respond. Then, answer the questions below to dive deeper!

Reflection Questions: 

  • How can we, in our lives, pass on the knowledge of God's faithfulness to the next generations?
  • In what ways can we personally respond to God's covenant promises in our 
  • relationship with Him?
  • How does the psalmist's declaration of singing about God's steadfast love inspire our own expressions of worship?
  • How might the fulfillment of God's promises in Jesus influence our understanding of God's faithfulness?


Lord, we thank You for fulfilling Your covenants. We praise You for being the Lord, mighty in steadfast love and everlasting faithfulness. 


God is guiding my life through the truths revealed in Scripture. I hear from God, and I have a growing awareness of what His Word says and what it means. 

Memory Verse

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.

Psalm 1:1-2

Get Started: As part of your Daily Time With God, read or listen to the Bible

You can read a physical Bible, or read/listen using a Bible app (we recommend YouVersion).

Priority = After you’ve spent time in worship, read or listen to the Bible. Plan for 5x per week. All of us occasionally “miss”...that’s normal. The key is to do your best to not miss 2 consecutive days.

Pray = Ask God to help you understand what you read. He promises to “lead us into truth” (John 16:13).

Plan = Decide what you’re going to read. We recommend reading at least a paragraph at a time…and working up to larger chunks. A predefined reading plan makes this easier. Here are some ideas:

 • Join the Church Reading Plan

 • Read 1 John, then Gospel of John, then all the New Testament (Matthew-Revelation)

 • Pick a book of the Bible and read straight through. If you are just getting started (or even re-started), we recommend you start in the New Testament.
