Dec 13: Jesus is Counsellor



Luke 1:67-80


John the Baptist was a very important person, not because he was rich and famous, or popular at that time in history. In fact he didn’t have a house, or any money, he wore only camel fur and he ate locusts and honey. And he was so disliked by some he was beheaded! The candle lit on the 3rd Sunday of Advent reminds us of John because he pointed the way to Jesus. He helped people to have a new start with God. He baptised them in the river Jordan. John helped people to realise that they needed Jesus.

Today’s promise

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. “ Isaiah 9:6


Lord Jesus our Counsellor, thank you that you always listen. Please give us wisdom and guidance as we pour out our hearts and problems to you. Amen
