December 23rd's Advent Devotional
By Dr. Jack Graham | December 24, 2017
I want you to try to imagine what the world would be like if Jesus had never been born. It’s beyond our imagination, but just try to picture it. We certainly wouldn’t know God as we know Him now. In fact, we’d be fortunate to have even heard about the God revealed in the Old Testament.
December 22nd's Advent Devotional

Our world has spent the past month going through a whirlwind of consumerism mixed with religion and a dash of spirituality when appropriate. Now that we’re just a few days from December 25th , let’s try to answer this question: What is the meaning of the Christmas season?
December 21st's Advent Devotional
By Dr. Jack Graham | December 21, 2017
I’ve told the story before of a man who was getting ready to put a sign in his yard that said “N-O-E-L” to spread some Christmas cheer. It was a cold night, a snowstorm hit, and the man was trying to put the letters up from behind instead of facing them. He fumbled and bumbled, and said some very un-Christmas-like things in the process.
December 20th's Advent Devotional
By Dr. Jack Graham | December 20, 2017
For many years of my life, I was a late-riser. I never liked getting up early if it wasn’t absolutely necessary. In fact, the idea of waking up before the sun rose was almost nauseating to me.
December 19th's Advent Devotional
By Dr. Jack Graham | December 19, 2017
It doesn’t take much looking today to see that the world is in darkness – intellectual darkness, political darkness, and moral darkness. But because Christ has come into the world, we who have lived in the darkness have seen a great Light. On the night when Christ was born, that star punctured the blackened sky and signaled the coming of the Savior. And now God is with us.
December 18th's Advent Devotional

We don’t know what happened to these wise men. They leave the biblical story as quickly as they enter it. We can suppose they came to saving faith and lived out the rest of their days as followers of Jesus. That’s my belief, but the story just doesn’t tell us.
December 17th's Advent Devotional
By Dr. Jack Graham | December 17, 2017
I love reading. And some of my favorite books are stories in which everything is going along normally when all of a sudden, there’s a twist. If you’d been living at the time of Jesus and heard the story of the gifts that were brought by the magi, you would’ve heard about a shocking twist.
December 16th's Advent Devotional
By Dr. Jack Graham | December 16, 2017
What is the fundamental question that fuels how we look at the universe? It’s bigger than, “What’s the meaning of life?” And it’s deeper than, “Is there a God?” No, I believe the deepest question our souls long to answer is this: “Why is there something instead of nothing?” And our answer to that question will determine exactly how we look at our universe and ourselves.
December 15th's Advent Devotional
By Dr. Jack Graham | December 15, 2017
I remember years ago when Life magazine ran a cover story that asked a very provocative question. Famous for its breathtaking photos, the cover featured a stunning picture of the heavens, filled with stars, galaxies, and planets. And on it were printed the words, “Who is God?”
December 14th's Advent Devotional
By Dr. Jack Graham | December 14, 2017
I don’t know about you, but it’s through the simple things in life that God speaks to me … in the beauty of a sunset, or the smile on a child’s face. It’s in those times that we can realize that heaven’s message is close by.
