Advent 2019: The Heart of Our Savior Revealed Through His Names

The 2019 Advent Devotional from Fresno Pacific University is now available in both English and Spanish. Go online to or check and look for the Advent Devotional tile.

This year’s theme is “The Names of Jesus.” Names are important—they may represent our hopes and expectations for the future and our relationship with the past. This Advent area pastors and other leaders call readers to think on the breadth of the heart of our Savior revealed through his names. “The Christmas season should be a celebration of the life he gives and the life we have received,” says Joseph Jones, Ph.D., FPU president, in his introduction. “His names will tell us much about his heart for us. As we open our hearts to him, we receive new birth which marvels at his greatness and brings us “joy unspeakable and full of glory.”

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
