Christmas Devotion Countdown

A Christmas devotion for each of the 25 days counting down to Christmas - daily Bible study for the whole family!

It’s almost December and although stores have had Christmas decorations out since before Thanksgiving, how many of us have actually begun focusing our thoughts and hearts on the object of Christmas – Jesus? 

Have we hesitated a moment before buying that special gift for someone to think about God’s most precious gift of His Son?  Have the hanging of Christmas lights caused us to praise Jesus for coming into this darkness as the Light of the World?

Here are twenty-five Christmas countdown on-the-go, active, object lesson devotions with Bible verses to help us keep our focus on the true reason for the season!  Each day snap a photo of each item for a visual and use as a photo challenge on Social Media, or with your family, small group, friends or just for yourself.  It’s a fun way to enjoy the presence of Christ each and every day as we look towards celebrating His birthday!
