Advent Reflections 2020: ‘Hidden in Christ’

In this Advent Season, as we wait in hope and expectation for the coming Saviour, let’s refocus our attention on what this glorious Saviour came to do.  The devotional reflections below are based on Colossians 3:1-17 – one of the great passages of scripture.  Each takes a single word for our daily inspiration and enables us to drink deep of these great truths: that you are one in whom Christ dwells, and that you live in the strong and unshakeable kingdom of God.  In this unique season, never have we needed more to root ourselves in our identity in Christ.

The reflections are excerpts taken from James Bryan Smith’s book ‘Hidden in Christ’, and are reproduced with his permission – our grateful thanks to Prof. Smith, one of the world’s best devotional writers,  for generously allowing us to share these free of charge.  To buy a copy of ‘the real thing’, the book is sold online in multiple places: currently on offer at, also at and  Prof. Smith also publishes a regular podcast ‘Things Above’ which you can access here.

Huge thanks to Matt and Alise Trendall for all their work typing up the Reflections for us.
