We are now in the advent season, which for the believer is a wonderful time to celebrate the coming of our Messiah.
The thought struck me this morning to look the passages in the bible that lead into the entry into creation of the promised Saviour Jesus. Many of us celebrate the Christmas period with advent calendars, but what about celebrating with an advent devotional?
Whilst is might seem to be something that catholic or mainline churches might use for worship, I think there is a great blessing in walking through the scriptures in the lead up to Christmas day.
Here are ten great advent devotional resources that you can use in your own life:
- Advent Reading Guide (Evanston Vineyard) – Downloadable PDF
- Advent Scripture Reading Guide (WOLC) – Onsite Reading Guide
- Advent Reading Guide (Gospel.com) – Onsite Reading Guide
- Family Inductive Study Guide for Advent (Eleanor Zweigle) – Downloadable studies
- Journey to Bethlehem (Scripture Union USA) – Onsite Devotions
- Advent Bible Verse (intothyword.org) – Teaching on Advent & Scripture Reading Guides
- Following the Star (d365.org) – Interactive, daily advent devotional
- Advent Christmas Devotional Guide (BaptistWay) – Downloadable PDF
- Carol: A Christmas Devotional (YouVersion) – Online and on mobile devices
- Countdown to Christmas (YouVersion) – Family devotions, Online & mobile
(Note: not all are 2012 calendars, but it is pretty easy to adjust to the current year in the lead up to December 25th)
Happy and blessed Christmas!!
