Advent 2022: You Can't Beat God Giving by Thedford Collins
"For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son."
- John 3:16

You Can't Beat God Giving
As we enter this Advent season, I can’t help but think of the gift God has given us. I know we all like to think we give so much, but in comparison there is no way we can surpass the gift God gave us when He gave us his son. That is why we can’t beat God’s giving. The gift God gave to us is truly the light of the world.
When we accept that light and walk in that light, we know that his Son, Jesus is the light of the world. When we sing glory to the newborn King, we get a feeling of just how significant a gift this is, and we know that there is no gift we can give that allows us to beat God’s gift/giving.
The gift lets us know the Lord is blessing us right now, He woke us up, started us on our way and He does that every day. This is how I know that we can’t beat God’s giving.

Prayer: Father, keep us in your care and accept our thanks for the gift of your son Jesus. Have us to live lives that show others how grateful we are for this gift and in ways that will help us brings others to salvation. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen
We invite you to join us during the Advent season as we reflect on the virtues of Hope, Joy, Peace, and Love; as we anticipate Christ's birth; and prepare our hearts to receive him.
Each day a new reflection with a scripture and prayer will be posted on the Metropolitan AME Church website and social media to encourage you as we prepare.
Read along with us each day or download the book to read and reflect along with us offline.
