When looking to reflect and celebrate the Advent Season as a family, it’s important to keep some key elements of our devotional activities front and center. Christ is sole reason for Christmas; everything we do reminds, or causes us to reflect upon Him. If we can accomplish daily focus on Jesus, then our Christmas is bound to mean more this year than ever before.
It’s not hard to lose our zeal for Christ and Christmas alongside the commercialism that capitalizes off the holiday season. In the busyness of the season, it’s possible for the Creator of Time to stretch our minutes to spend a moment with Him. Often, we run through life, especially around the holidays, convinced we don’t have time to sit in silence with Him. Our neglect to carve space to be with Him frays our minutes.
Christmas is communicated in song in many ways, and the best new carols stick to scriptural bases, sometimes adding melodies from classics right alongside new compositions. Here is a great place to start when looking for some new holiday inspiration to add to the Christmas playlist.
Christians celebrate Christmas, the day Christ was born on earth to Mary, the virgin mother. God doesn’t have to go to great lengths to show His vibrant brush strokes in the world and on our lives, yet He often does. Jesus coming to earth in such a unique way requires faith of those who believe, even to this day.
