Preparing for Christmas with Advent and YouVersion Bible Reading Plans
Recently a friend posted on Twitter about churches celebrating Advent which created an interest inside of me to learn more about Advent, what it is, and how you celebrate it. I’ve learned that it is kind of like Lent but it’s in preparation of Christmas and the first coming of Christ as a baby in the light of Easter and Jesus’ death on the cross. Around this time I started searching YouVersion for an Advent reading plan and came across –
- Countdown to Christmas – 29 day plan
- Rediscovering the Christmas Season – 1 month plan
- Carols: A Christmas Devotional – 25 day plan
I’ve found that these reading plans are a simple way to start preparing your heart for Christmas. They include additional resources as well on the meaning behind Christmas songs, family activities for advent, and other ways to prepare as a family. They are good devotionals to use individually, with a friend, or for the whole family. Consider starting one today!
Are you doing a reading plan or devotional leading up to Christmas? Does your church or family celebrate Advent?
