Christmas–the high point of the year. A time for family and friends, reunions and traditions, hospitality and good will. But it is also a time for serious introspection and spiritual renewal. The Lord’s Anointed is a collection of 41 brief readings specially prepared for Advent and Christmas. These easy-to-read daily devotional thoughts are suitable for family use or private meditations as a way to prepare for the Savior’s arrival. Their focus is on Christ’s threefold office: Prophet, Priest, and King. These three Old Testament foreshadows of the Savior’s work had a solemn anointing ceremony in common. Christ Jesus was, and is, The Lord’s Anointed–our Prophet, Priest, and King. Each two-page devotion begins with a short Scripture text, is followed by some discussion, and closes with a short prayer. Devotions begin the first Sunday in Advent and go through Epiphany (January 6).
