Advent Day 28: Joy – Gospel in Life

Advent Day 28: Joy

FOURTH WEEK OF ADVENT – SATURDAY December 30, 2023


READ Matthew 2:1–23
The wise men (Magi) find the King they have been searching for, and they worship the infant Jesus with gifts.

REFLECT
The wise men went looking for a king, and recognized him even as a baby born into a poor family. They worshipped him, and gave him gifts. What gifts do you offer to Jesus, “born to give you second birth”? He needs nothing, but accepts those who offer themselves as needy sinners relying solely on him for salvation and the life he alone freely gives.

PRAY
Jesus, save me. Come Almighty to deliver, born to set your people—born to set ME—free.
