Advent Devotions: Is God Your Co-Pilot

For the Second Sunday of Advent our Devotional is “Switch Seats.” An excerpt:

There’s a company that makes T-shirts with spiritual themes. One of them shows an airplane being flown by a frantic pilot. The shirt says “If God is your co-pilot, switch seats.” That’s a statement that’s simple, but sort of sums up our struggle. We often talk about how faith is hard. But I believe a certain amount of faith is really not difficult at all. It’s not hard to acknowledge God. And I don’t think it’s hard for me to make God my co-pilot. Like this: “God, you keep an eye on the horizon and the dials and gauges while I fly the plane. But you be ready in case a storm comes up or we lose an engine or the wing falls off, because then I’m gonna need you to save the day.”

Read the rest at our Advent Devotions pages. We’re featuring a different Advent Devotional on each Sunday of Advent, closing the series on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24. We hope these meditations will be a blessing to you!
