This Advent we are pairing a devotional practice with each candle. The third candle, joy, is a reminder that because our Savior has come we have nothing to do but celebrate! Joy is the response of a heart that is resting in Jesus. To better cultivate that rest, God has given us the gift of sabbath, 24 hours to recognize that since God made the day holy and blessed, we should do nothing but worship and rest.
