As we journey through the season of Advent and celebrate the joy of Christmas, we’re reading Scripture that points us to Jesus – who is at the centre of the whole Bible. We begin by reading about John the Baptist preparing the way for Jesus’ ministry, about Jesus’ baptism, the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness and about different aspects of His ministry. Then we’ll read some Old Testament prophecies that remind us Jesus is the one who was spoken of by the prophets; after that we’ll read about the coming of the Son of God into the world as a baby, the good news that Jesus Christ is ‘God with us’; and we’ll conclude the year reading about Jesus’ arrest, trial, crucifixion, death and resurrection.
During the busyness of December, take time to read God’s word, reminding yourself of the who is at the centre of it all. As you read each day, pray that God would speak to you by His Spirit, drawing you deeper into a relationship with Him this Advent and Christmas.”
Please get involved, as together, we seek to grow in our relationship with God and develop and deepen our relationship with Him.
