For Advent in 2019 we walked through the metanarrative of scripture; creation, fall, redemption, and restoration. We decided to re-air this series this year to go long with our new Biblical Theology Advent Cards! These cards were created to guide families through the story of scripture focusing on God the Son and His role from creation all the way to restoration.
There are three cards for each week of advent. Each card will prompt you to read a main truth, open your Bible to read that day’s passage(s), pray, and discuss or complete an activity. On the back of each card is part of a puzzle which, by Christmas, will create a beautiful reminder of the reason for the season. You can download them for free at the link in our bio!
On episode 83 of the Adorned Podcast we discuss the part of the metanarrative of scripture that we tend to focus on the most at Christmas, redemption. Why was it necessary for the Son of God to wrap himself in flesh in order to fully redeem us? How does meditating on the redeeming work of Christ change the way we view the holiday season? We would love for you to join us as we continue to prepare our hearts and minds as we draw nearer to Christmas Day.
“We are still living with the effects of the fall, but those of us that are in Christ have His imputed righteousness.”
“We can move away from the darkness because Jesus is the light of the world!”
“Redemption is the reason that Jesus had to be born as a baby, so it is the whole reason we celebrate Christmas.”
“The more familiar I am with the whole story of scripture, the better I know God, and the deeper my love for him is.”
“Everything we do at Christmas should flow from the fact that Jesus coming as a baby is the gift.”
“Lord, help me to do everything out of the overflow from the fact that I have received the ultimate gift from you.”
