His Name Is: An Advent Daily Devotional
The leadership of LaGrange Baptist Church prepared this daily devotional booklet for use during the Advent season.
The signs of Christmas approaching are all around us: trees and lights are for sale in many stores, commercials advertising their holiday deals loop repeatedly on television, Christmas carols blast across the radio airwaves, and the name of Jesus is a household name. This time of year we grow accustomed to singing Jesus’ name in songs, seeing it written on decorations, and hearing it mentioned in movies and TV shows. But although hearing the name of Jesus is common during the Christmas season, truly understanding that name is not as common.
Isaiah prophesies that when the Messiah comes that “he shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Over the next few weeks, we want to learn more about this Messiah whom the angel would one day talk about saying, “you shall call his name Jesus” (Matthew 1:21). In this booklet, you will find 18 daily devotionals that will walk you through the character of our Lord and Savior. Each day features a Scripture passage, a short
devotional thought, and a prayer. You will also find a related song to listen to as well as a question for kids to consider. It is our prayer that as we reflect on the name of Jesus through this season of Advent that He would lead us to “do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” (Colossians 3:17).
