The First Days of Jesus

The First Days of Jesus

It is now November, and before too long it will be Christmas time. Several people have asked me for recommendations on devotional readings for Christmas. I thought I would put this into a blog post should anyone be interested. The below are suggestions that you might find helpful in keeping your focus on the birth of our Savior during the hectic season ahead.

Matthew 1:1- 2:23

Luke 1:26-2:21

John 1:1-18

Galatians 4:4-5

1 Timothy 1:15-17

Isaiah 7:14; 9:6-7; 11:1

Micah 5:2

As for a specific book/devotional, I cannot recommend “The First Days of Jesus: The Story of the Incarnation” highly enough. I had one of the authors as a Professor in seminary, and he was excellent in teaching on the life of Christ. What I love about the book is that it is biblical, Christ-centered, but not watered down. You will learn, grow, and rejoice in the birth of Christ as you read it. It also has a great Christmas reading plan.

I pray that these suggestions will help you retain focus on Jesus during Christmas.
