I hope you are enjoying this beautiful season of twinkling lights and candy canes. As I pondered the Christmas story this year and how we’ve done devotions in the past, I wanted to do something that looked at the Christmas story in a new way. How often do we read the words in Luke or Matthew without really thinking about them? Sure, we know the basic story, but have we ever really looked at how God constructed it. So, this year, we read through the Christmas story as told by both Luke and Matthew and wrote down all the ‘characters’ we encountered in our reading. 13 writers came together to write about these characters and their importance in the Christmas story. We hope it will help you shine fresh eyes on Christmas and the beauty of how God wove it together.
Take a look at our character list and read through the Christmas Story as told by Matthew and Luke. Together, let’s walk into Christmas with a greater understanding of the importance of this incredible season.

Together, this season, let’s revel in the beautiful way God wove this story together and look with fresh eyes at the story around us God is unfolding. He has called each of us to a purpose. Are you ready?
