The Christmas season is one of the busiest times of the year. But it is also a season of reflection and preparation for that special day when we mark Immanuel's coming - the arrival of our eternal God in our own frail humanity.
This is the greatest of history's many wonders, something too stupendous to celebrate just on one day. The Advent season is a way of lengthening and intensifying the joy of Christmas.
These 25 brief devotional readings from John Piper begin on the 1st December and carry us to Christmas Day. May God use these meditations to deepen and sweeten your adoration of Jesus and help you keep Him at the centre of your Christmas season.
