Advent 2022 Christmas: Grace, Love, and Fellowship With Us

My advent mediations are inspired by my recent study of 2 Corinthians which ended with a beautiful benediction—the only one that mentions all three persons of the Trinity. We have seen that the Trinity was with us in the Christmas story through grace, love, and fellowship. But how were grace, love, and fellowship also visible in the lives of the people in the Christmas events? And how do we demonstrate these traits in our own lives?

True Comfort Soothes and Strengthens

When I was seventeen I contracted amoebic dysentery in a Papua New Guinean village while volunteering at a youth camp. I thought I might die. I could not keep anything inside me but when I stood up for the necessary bathroom visit, I fainted. My mother, a nurse by profession, held my forehead while all my bodily fluids escaped with projectile force. At night, as soon as I cried, “I need help,” my father’s feet hit the floor and raced down the hall to come to my aid. My mother soothed and my dad strengthened. I needed both for comfort in my suffering.
