Christmas Countdown--6 Days Until Christmas

Our Bible verse for today was 2 Corinthians 8:9 (Christ who was rich became poor). Any Christmas carols and hymns with this idea of the lowly stable and humble furnishings fit well. (From Heaven Above to Earth I Come/Away in a Manger/What Child Is This...)

Today is a good day to re-focus our attention on the meaning of this season.

In one week, all of the presents will be opened, the Christmas ham/turkey will be frozen or discarded, and radio stations will go back to playing their regular music.

Will we be feeling Grinchy? Hopefully after today's literature reading of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and watching the accompanying video, we'll be reminded that Christmas is much more than ribbons and bows.

Christmas is about the message of the coming of our Lord and Savior that we've been looking forward to all these weeks of Advent! It is just the beginning!

Our Bible countdown lessons will shift gears in the coming days to the work Christ came to Earth to do--His life, death, and resurrection to forgive the sins of the world.
