Weekend Coffee Break: Christmas Edition


Grab your coffee this weekend and sit with me as I share everything Christmas to read, listen to, watch, and ponder. @mferrell

To Read:

Words are the Greatest Gifts – @Desiring God

“Words are the secret of Christmas. Even more important than the gifts we purchase, and the packages we wrap, are the letters we write, and the syllables we mouth. And once you discover the secret, you might even spend less time sweating what to buy, and give more energy to crafting what to say.”

Christians and Christmas – @Grace to You

“Every day—including Christmas—is a celebration for us who know and love Him.”

5 Things to Pack in Your Holiday Suitcase – @Revive Our Hearts

“Whatever situation you’ll be facing as you travel this season, here are five things to pack in your suitcase that will help you remain spiritually strong and steadfast during your time away.”

Make Christmas a Starting Place, Not a Dead End – @Your Mom Has a Blog

“But, what really matters is not how much we talk about Jesus during December. What will make an eternal impact on our families is how much we talk about Jesus during all the other months of the year. What matters is whether we are living out this faith in regular, everyday life.”

To Ponder:

Here’s a side to the Christmas story that isn’t often told: Those soft little hands, fashioned by the Holy Spirit in Mary’s womb, were made so that nails might be driven through them. Those baby feet, pink and unable to walk, would one day walk up a dusty hill to be nailed to a cross. That sweet infant’s head with sparkling eyes and eager mouth was formed so that someday men might force a crown of thorns onto it. That tender body, warm and soft, wrapped in swaddling clothes, would one day be ripped open by a spear. Jesus was born to die.

~ John MacArthur

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

~ Luke 2:11
