Advent Devotional: Monday, December 10

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men!" (Luke 2:13-14)

Christians do God a great disservice when they promote unbiblical stereotypes about His anger and wrath. The Gospel is good news, and the sending of His Son shows what is in God's heart - that He has good will towards the human race.

God, help us to be careful not to misrepresent You before people when speaking of matters of sin and judgment. For You have demonstrated Your good will in sending your Son, and demonstrated Your love in that "while we were yet sinners" He died to restore our fellowship with You!
