1. Day 25 Simple Christmas Video Devotional: “Believe”

December 25, 2017

Here’s the video devotional for Day 25 of Simple Christmas: “Believe.”  I hope you will join us on “Miracle “Road,” our Lenten journey through the miracles of Christ. I chose this theme because we all need to discover the life-changing power of Jesus. Our journey begins on February 14. Merry Christmas!

2. Believe

December 25, 2017

“He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High” (Luke 1:32). Jesus did not look like the “Son of the Most High.” He looked like an ordinary baby boy. When Jesus was conceived in Mary’s womb, the infinite God took on the form of a tiny unborn baby boy. Eternal God […]

3. Adore

December 24, 2017

“We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him” (Matthew 2:2). “O come, let us adore him.” What exactly does it mean to adore Christ? The word means more than simply approving of someone. It’s much more than appreciation. Adore is an emotional word that speaks to the deepest commitment of my heart. There […]

5. Day 23 Simple Christmas Video Devotional: “Tell”

December 23, 2017

Here’s the video devotional for Day 23 of Simple Christmas: “Tell.” 

6. Tell

December 23, 2017

“When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child” (Luke 2:17). Shepherds often came from the base elements of society. In that day, they were so little trusted that a shepherd’s testimony would not be accepted in a courtroom. Shepherds were on the lowest rung of […]

7. Day 22 Simple Christmas Video Devotional: “Receive”

December 22, 2017

Here’s the video devotional for Day 22 of Simple Christmas: Receive.”

8. Receive

December 22, 2017

“But to all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in his name, who were born, not of natural descent, or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man but of God” (John 1:12-13). Verse 12 has been rightly seen as one of the greatest verses in the New Testament because it […]

9. Day 21 Simple Christmas Video Devotional: “Rejoice”

December 21, 2017

Here’s the video devotional for Day 21 of Simple Christmas: “Rejoice.”

10. Rejoice

December 21, 2017

Chinese Nativity Scene  “I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people” (Luke 2:10). Christmas is full of surprises. I ran across a statement that sums it up: “Isn’t it amazing that a baby born in a stable 2,000 years ago can cause traffic jams this week?” Christians ought to […]

11. Day 20 Simple Christmas Video Devotional: “Weep”

December 20, 2017

Here’s the video devotional for Day 20 of Simple Christmas: “Weep.”

12. Weep

December 20, 2017

“A voice was heard in Ramah, weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children; and she refused to be consoled, because they were no more” (Matthew 2:18). Weeping seems out of place at Christmastime. Why weep when we can rejoice? And yet many around us are weeping today. I’m reminded of the mournful words […]

13. Day 19 Simple Christmas Video Devotional: “Glorify”

December 19, 2017

Here’s the video devotional for Day 19 of Simple Christmas: “Glorify.”

14. Glorify

December 19, 2017

Navajo Nativity Scene “The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told” (Luke 2:20). What a difference a day makes. On the day before Christ was born, the shepherds were in the fields tending their sheep. On the day after […]

15. New Podcast: “Christmas Prodigals”

December 18, 2017

We have just uploaded a new podcast called Christmas Prodigals. I hope this encourages you because when God gives a burden, he intends to give an answer.

16. Ponder

December 18, 2017

“But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart” (Luke 2:19).  The word “treasured” has the idea of counting things up, almost like making a list so you won’t forget anything. It’s what you do at the end of a very busy day when you want to make sure you don’t forget anything […]

17. Sing

December 17, 2017

“Sing praises to the Lord, for he has done glorious things. Let this be made known throughout the earth” (Isaiah 12:5). Christmas and music go together. Most of us can’t imagine celebrating Christmas without singing “Silent Night” or “The First Noel” or “Away in a Manger.” Each year we hear Christmas music in church, on the radio, […]

18. Encourage

December 16, 2017

“Encourage one another and build each other up” (1 Thessalonians 5:11). For many years Henrietta Mears was director of Christian education at Hollywood Presbyterian Church. God gave her a wonderful insight into human nature. These are her words: “Whenever I meet a new person, I imagine them wearing a sign across their chest which reads, ‘My name is […]

19. Day 15 Simple Christmas Video Devotional: “Reconcile”

December 15, 2017

Here’s the video devotional for Day 15 of Simple Christmas: Reconcile.” 

20. Reconcile

December 15, 2017

“His name will be called . . . Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6). Pollster George Gallup surveyed Americans on the top five questions they would most like to ask God. The list included the following question: “Will there ever be lasting world peace?” It’s a fitting question given the chaos in the world today. Whether […]

21. Day 14 Simple Christmas Video Devotional: “Forgive”

December 14, 2017

Here’s the video devotional for Day 14 of Simple Christmas: “Forgive.” 

22. Forgive

December 14, 2017

“Love covers a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:8). Christmas can be the hardest season of the year. Sometimes we find ourselves a long way from home, and we wish we could be with our family and friends. But sometimes the distance is on the inside because we struggle with feelings of anger and bitterness. […]

23. Day 13 Simple Christmas Video Devotional: “Greet”

December 13, 2017

Here’s the Video Devotional for Day 13 of Simple Christmas: “Greet.”

24. Greet

December 13, 2017

“Greet one another with a holy kiss” (Romans 16:16). There are still cultures where the holy kiss is practiced today. I’ll never forget my first trip to St. Petersburg, Russia with John and Helen Sergey. When the men of the Temple of the Gospel greeted John, they hugged him and warmly kissed him on the cheek. […]

25. Day 12 Simple Christmas Video Devotional: “Share”

Ebook: In His Steps

No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
