What could it look like for you to make a new way to enter into the celebration of Christ’s birth? God chose to enter fully into our human experience and show us what his love looks like through the actual events of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.

600 years before that first Christmas, the prophet Isaiah announced on behalf of God, “Make way for Christmas!” His works spoke about making a way for God to come to his people, which is what Christmas is ultimately about.

A voice of one calling:

“In the wilderness prepare the way for the Lord;

make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be raised up,

every mountain and hill made low;

the rough ground shall become level,

the rugged places a plain.
And the glory of the Lord will be revealed,
and all people will see it together.
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
– Isaiah 40:1-5 (NIV)

This is a costly highway construction project! This is God coming for us, to restore us, to forgive us, to speak tenderly to us, to remind us that he sees and knows and cares about our own places of hardship and suffering, full-well knowing our condition. We are not abandoned. God builds a super-highway right into our suffering, and takes its full weight on himself so that we might be comforted.

This downloadable retreat will explore God’s determination to build a highway to his people, including you, and offers springboards for prayer and reflection as you consider what it means to join God’s construction crew this Advent season.
