Why did Jesus need to come to Earth? This is just one of the thought-provoking questions included in the Advent family devotional surrounding the coming of Christ to the world.
“Advent” means coming or arrival, and Family Advent Devotions, developed by the Faith at Home ministry of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, is for families with children to use Dec. 1-25, the Advent season.
Devotions are divided into four major themes — hope, promise, joy and love — that will inspire you and your family to put Jesus at the center of Christmas. You may choose to take 15 minutes daily or condense the devotions into a weekly extended time. Each of the daily passages includes a Scripture reference, a devotion for the family, questions for both younger and older children, and prayer prompts.
The Christmas season can provide a rich opportunity to remind our families of the hope, promise and resounding joy we experience in Christ’s coming into the world. The Faith at Home ministry helps busy parents disciple children with confidence, and we hope that this resource will help you and your family draw near to Christ and celebrate His birth.
