Advent means “coming.” It’s a time for us to celebrate the first coming of Christ, but also to anticipate His return. Prepare your heart for Christmas, and get into the Word during the busiest of seasons.

Love Came Down At Christmas is a new Advent devotional from Sinclair Ferguson. It contains 24 daily readings from 1 Corinthians 13. Sinclair Ferguson brings the rich theology of the incarnation to life with his trademark warmth and clarity. We’ll see what “love” looked like in the life of Christ and be challenged to love like Him.

Love Came Down at Christmas will warm your affections for Christ and remind you of your identity in Him as a lover of God and a lover of others.”

  1 Corinthians 13  

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. ‎And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. ‎

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. ‎

Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. ‎When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. ‎For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. ‎So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
