Foretold by the prophets and announced by angels, Jesus’ birth is the fulfillment of divine promises. The events of Christmas have God’s fingerprints all over them. At just the right time, He brought His Son into this world to redeem us. In Call His Name Jesus, we see how God is ever-present in our lives—so much so that His Son became one of us to bring us back to Himself.
These devotions have followed suit with reflection questions in the appendix for each day’s messages.
The cover art for the Canadian devotions was designed by Amelia Hatzitolios of Barrie Ontario.
TU LUI DONNERAS LE NOM DE JÉSUS
Méditations de l’Avent 2019
Prédite par les prophètes et annoncée par les anges, la naissance de Jésus est l’accomplissement des promesses divines. Les événements entourant Noël sont empreints de la présence de Dieu. Au bon moment, il a fait naître son Fils dans le monde pour nous racheter. Dans Tu lui donneras le nom de Jésus, nous voyons comment Dieu est toujours présent dans nos vies – à tel point que son Fils est devenu l’un de nous pour nous ramener à lui.
Les méditations sont accompagnées de questions de réflexion. Celles-ci peuvent être utilisées pour l’apprentissage personnel ou comme pistes de discussion lorsque vous les lisez en groupe.

It’s about Life
We believe that Life is a gift, a precious gift of God, that is to be used to glorify Him and to serve others.
With its joys and delights our earthly Life can be wonderful but at times Life can also be difficult, with pain and even sorrow. There are times in Life when each of us needs some assistance or guidance as we face these challenges. For our resources click here.

Pastor Hart’s message “Life is a precious gift” warns against our culture’s devaluation of life and calls us to see ourselves and others as precious people, created by God, redeemed by Christ. (Genesis 1:27)
