Joy to the World

Christmas Bible Reading Plan

I think everyone, the world over, has had a moment this year to consider and appreciate all that they have and love. But this last year also gave us an opportunity to see that we can live with alot less… less money, less going out, less pretty dresses, less fancy shoes. Less extravagance… just alot less… we were literally stripped down to our basic minimum needs.

And just as we have used this year to refocus and declutter our lives, I want to use the last month of the year to refocus on Christ and what His birth meant coming to a hurting world. I want to break Christmas down to its absolute basic meaning. Which is, the birth of Jesus.

So, in light of the year we have been through and in celebration of the Christmas Season, I have put together The Christmas Story through scripture. The story of how Jesus’ birth brought Joy to a hurting world.

There is a new scripture for everyday up until December 24th. I hope you will be blessed and would use this platform to reconnect with the One who was born so that we could have life everlasting…???
