I’ve seen it plenty of times. You have too. From billboards to bumper stickers, it’s hard to miss: “Jesus is the reason for the season.” I’ve heard that simple phrase so often over the years. It’s a nice reminder. But if I’m honest, it seems like it loses a little bit of power for me with every passing year. As the years roll on, I think I’m just more susceptible to auto-piloting Christmas.
“25 Reasons Why Jesus Was Born” is your opportunity to reconnect with the reason behind the season. Twenty-five days with twenty-five different contributors. Each day reflects on a specific reason for Jesus’ birth and includes some thoughts as we move toward Christmas Day.
Whether you engage this resource individually, as a family, or as a church, I think you’ll enjoy catching a glimpse into what God was up to more than 2000 years ago.
If you are looking for quality resources for families during the Advent season, then take a look at this free Awana Advent devotional. this is an excellent project, which is designed for 5 different groups of people:
3. Early Elementary
4. Late Elementary
5. Junior High and High School
Each of these devotionals contain a Scripture passage, a devotional on the passage, and an application suggestion that is customized based on the specific age-category you selected for your Advent devotional.
This resource would be a great help to the families in your church this Christmas season. The best part is that every version of the devotional is free! You can download the Awana Advent Devotional here on their website
Just be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the website to see the spot to sign up for the devotional. I have the blessing and privilege to work at the Awana headquarters where our prayer is that all children and youth throughout the world will come to know, love and serve our Lord Jesus Christ.
