Stories don’t just entertain us; stories also form us. That is why this guide is less about information and more about formation. We have created this guide to provide a framework for entering the story of King Jesus and His Kingdom through establishing habits and rhythms.
From Bible Reading Plans and Devotionals to Reflection and Prayer Prompts, we want to give you a way to reenchant your heads and hearts around the true story of the Kingdom this Christmas season.
Bible Reading Plan
One of the primary ways in which we grow as disciples of Jesus is through reading the Bible. We have provided a reading plan that will take you deeper into the story of how gold, frankincense, and myrrh paint a picture of the Kingdom of God.
The challenge here is progress, not perfection. Think about how often you currently read the Bible and simply start with a “+1” of that. Experiencing the benefit and joy of Bible reading often leads to greater frequency.
An Invitation to Pray
As a part of the Bible Reading Plan, we’re inviting you to spend time responding in prayer each day. We encourage you to pray for your time in the scriptures, that God would use His Word to center your heart and head around Him and His story.
In prayer, we intentionally enter into communication with God. God is always communicating with us whether it be through His Word, through the gentle prompting of the Holy Spirit, or through doors of opportunity swung wide open or firmly shut. In prayer however, we become intentionally aware that we are in the presence of God and that He desires to communicate with us. Consider the simple structure of P.R.A.Y. for how to spend time intentionally communicating with God.
Daily devotionals will be posted here starting on December 4. We can't wait to celebrate advent with you!
