Clinton FCC 2017 Bible Reading – December 24-30 – Christmas part 4
** Teachings about Jesus – this week, let’s read seven great chapters teaching us about the difference and impact Jesus makes! Thanks for reading every day – I’ve sure enjoyed the year!
Sunday December 24: Romans 5 – PEACE and JOY
Key Verse to consider: Verse 8 – “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Questions to ponder: Today is Christmas Eve and chapter 5 speaks of having “peace with God” because of Jesus – what comes to mind when you consider this phrase? Do you know people who don’t have this peace? Verse 8 speaks of God’s unconditional love for us – does this unconditional love motivate you in life and action? Another theme of this chapter is JOY – joy because of our relationship with Jesus. Jot down multiple thoughts or phrases of joy with Jesus on this Christmas Eve!
Prayer Point: Pray this prayer: “God, thank you for your unconditional love shown to ME by allowing your Son Jesus to die on the cross WHILE we were still in sin – thanks for your indescribable gift!”
