Rejoicing in Christ, the Newborn King: 25 Meditations for Family Worship During the Christmas Season
The family time of worship can be an opportunity to help reshape the thinking of our families regarding the true significance of Christmas. This devotional is a tool to help you as a family focus your minds and hearts on the person of Jesus Christ. Our Lord had no pomp or fanfare when He entered humanity, but His birth and subsequent death and resurrection is what provides salvation to all who would believe on Him in repentant faith.
Reading this devotional will point you to Biblical truth regarding the pre-incarnate Christ, the prophecies of Christ, the purposes of Christ’s coming, and the particulars surrounding Christ’s birth. Each day is meant to help you as a family not only read about these things, but discuss them together, and then unite your voices together in singing a great Christmas hymn. May it be used to help you better rejoice in our Lord Jesus Christ.
