The Christmas Bible Reading Plan encourages us to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ by meditating on the Holy scriptures.
The Christmas season has officially started. During this festive season, we indulge in activities like dressing the tree, baking biscuits, making Christmas crafts, wrapping presents, and singing carols. Unfortunately, we do not find time to read God’s word, and this normally ends up pretty far down on our to-do lists.
Our holiday activities easily eclipse the reason we celebrate, that is celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, who came to the world to die for our sins and gave us eternal life. Let us put Christ at the top of our Christmas list this year by following the Christmas Bible reading plan. Read the scriptures every day and spend quality time in prayer each morning.

The Christmas Bible reading plan will help us to meditate on the life of Jesus Christ — birth, infancy, childhood, mission, beginning ministry, miracles, teachings, appearances, opposition, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, second coming, and eternal reign. The Christmas Bible reading plan will enable us to pay attention to God’s pure word, listen to His direction and guidance, enjoy His presence, and be still in Him.
The Christmas Bible reading plan will aid us to be both regular and intentional with our daily scripture readings that are foundational to our worshiping and living life together in Christ. The Christmas Bible reading plan has been organized into mini-topics that will help us to focus our eyes on Jesus, stay accountable, and be deliberate in giving the Word of God the prime position in our lives.
The Bible is the tool that the Holy Spirit uses to save and sanctify us. God speaks to us through His living word and continually uses it to remind us that nothing is greater than his grace. Let us be mindful this season to spend more time on the Word of God so that we can celebrate the true reason for the season.
The Christmas daily bible reading plan requires only 10 minutes of your daily time. Ask God to speak to you so that you can draw closer to Him and reveal Himself through His word.
