Christmas can be a wonderful and fun time of the year but it’s easy to get caught up in the busyness that goes along with the season.

These advent bible readings is a great way to take some time out to focus on the scriptures and the real meaning of the Christmas season.

It starts on the 1st of December and goes all the way through till Christmas Day on the 25th and includes scriptures from both the Old and New Testaments going through not just the birth of Jesus but the prophecies that led up to it. I have also included the names of Jesus to reflect on during this time as we think about the birth of Jesus and what that means to us.

You can use the reading plan in your daily devotional time, during your family devotional time, or for your Scripture Journaling.  Why not pop it into your Bible Study Basket for easy access!

Scripture shows us that God’s plans were in place from the beginning.  He knew our need, our relationship with the Father had been broken through sin, and in His love, grace, and mercy, He provided a way to have that relationship restored.  He sent His own Son, Jesus, to make a way for us.

He said to them, “This is what I told you, while I was still with you, that all things which are written in the law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms, concerning me must be fulfilled.”

Luke 24:44
