Living the crazy life that God has given me!

Reading through the Season

I am so excited to be able to take this Christmas season and read through the bible about this story as we go through the series “Home for Christmas”.  We know that the home is really the heart and that is what we want to focus on when it comes to the Christmas season.  We want to make sure that our hearts are focused on Jesus.  So here are the verses that we can read through together, make sure that you share with me what you see Jesus doing in you as we read through this together.

Dec 6: Acts 20:35, 1 John 4:10

Dec 7: Exodus 25

Dec 8: Matthew 25:31-46

Dec 9: Isaiah 9:6-7, Revelation 19:1-16, 1 Timothy 6:11-16

Dec 10: Matthew 1:22-23, Isaiah 7:10-15, John 1:14

Dec 11: Genesis 1, Isaiah 1:18, Psalm 51:1-10

Dec 12: Revelation 2:1-5, 1 John 3:1-3

Dec 13: Psalm 150

Dec 14: Acts 15:22-31

Dec 15: Luke 1, Jeremiah 32:17

Dec 16: Matthew 2:1-12

Dec 17: Galatians 4:1-7

Dec 18:Isaiah 58, Matthew 6:16-18

Dec 19: Luke 11:1-13

Dec 20: John 1

Dec 21: John 21:25

Dec 23: Matthew 25

Dec 24: John 3:16

Dec 25: Luke 1:26-56, Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 2:1-40

Don’t forget that if you are a person with a smart phone you can get the bible on from YouVersion.  It is a great app that allows you to read through the bible during this season where ever you are during the day.  Looking forward to this coming Sunday, we are going to really have some fun as we continue to look at what it means to be “Home for Christmas”.

    Regarding the verses of Dec 6: I never knew “better to give than receive” was biblical. But more importantly, this passage (Acts) has nothing to do with giving and receiving gifts; instead Paul’s hammering the importance of service to others. I have come across stories of non-Christians, looking to partake of the season without doing the religious thing, volunteering for service projects, especially on Dec 25th itself. Now I love family togetherness and church services on Christmas as much as anyone, but how ironic that it’s non-Christians looking to avoid religion who are doing the most Christian activities on this feast day.
