Quiet Time Advent Bible Study
Throughout the Bible we read the central theme of waiting, anticipation and desire for the “coming”; the coming of our savior and our Lord.
Coming has been celebrated as a season, called Advent, throughout church history in the weeks prior to Christmas.
TJC as a body of believers will be studying the Bible together in the four major coming themes of hope, love, joy and peace.
Join us on this journey, as we all go deeper into the word. For many Bible study is an old habit, for others it’s intimidating. Press in with us and embrace spending quality time, reading and reflecting on brief verses, and hearing from God.
Each of four weeks we will be looking at an essential verse, each day that points to Christ as our hope, our love, our joy, and our sense of peace. Each week we will introduce a new skill for you to practice and use in drawing closer to our Lord Jesus. As we celebrate his coming and await his return.
ADVENT BIBLE STUDY
Week 1: HOPE
Day 5: The Lord is Faithful to the Hopeful
1 Yahweh, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens!
2 From the lips of babes and infants you have established strength,
because of your adversaries, that you might silence the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have ordained;
4 what is man, that you think of him?
What is the son of man, that you care for him?
5 For you have made him a little lower than the angels,
and crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You make him ruler over the works of your hands.
You have put all things under his feet:
7 All sheep and cattle,
yes, and the animals of the field,
8 the birds of the sky, the fish of the sea,
and whatever passes through the paths of the seas.
9 Yahweh, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Psalm 8 (WEB)
In Psalm 8, we have confirmation that God has always had a plan for us, despite our sinful natures. Psalm 8 promises that God’s strength will be communicated through the lips of the helpless (babes and infants). Then, we have this unique statement regarding the “son of man” In Hebrews 2:6-8, Paul confirm that this is none other than the incarnation of Jesus Christ. I believe that in Psalm 8, God is showing David his son and the hope of his future dominion and victory on the cross. The Lord is faithful to the hopeful!
