Posted on December 23, 2019 by .BIBLE Registry Categories: Spiritual

Look no further for Christmas devotionals, studies and reflections for you and your family.

Use these engaging tools, guides, activities and prayers to experience Christmas with your family. Incorporate these 4 engaging resources and reflect on the true meaning of the holiday.

1. Let’s Move!

Busy family? We’ve got you.

Get kids of all ages thinking about the meaning of Christmas with a variety of activity ideas. Try a dramatic reading of the Christmas story or related verses, or compile a “blessing basket” to encourage and remind us of God’s provision and goodness during a season of abundance.

2. Gospel Accounts

Have you ever compared the Christmas story from the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John? Each Gospel has a different perspective on the account, and ABS has prepared an interesting study that compares and contrasts the details.

Check out a Future.Bible podcast with Harmony.Bible founders who harness the Gospel when making disciples.

3. Creative kids?

It’s easy to overlook the remarkable character of the mother of Jesus. Teach young children about Mary’s faith and obedience with this coloring page highlighting this daring woman.

4. Tradition of Prayer

It’s never too late to start a meaningful tradition in your home. In addition to the delicious breakfast and Grandma’s strudel, set a meaningful tone on Christmas day by incorporating this beautiful Christmas prayer. The 4 sections naturally lend themselves to incorporating a few different readers. But don’t let that stop you! Divide up the stanzas however you like.

Next year, come back for the Advent devotionals at the start of the season. Don’t let the season pass without taking moments to reflect and focus on the Savior.

The celebration of Jesus' birth and His illuminating power is the focus of Christmas, and source of the excitement surrounding the season. We hope that as you gather with friends and family over the holidays, you will experience the joys of Christmas with these engaging activities.
