Bread of Life: Name of Christ Devotional to Keep Christ in Christmas

Mini-devotional using a Name of Jesus Christ.

MINI-DEVOTIONAL TO KEEP CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS

Sharing another great name of Jesus Christ to study by yourself, with your family, or a group of friends.

 

In 2022, Russell M. Nelson, Dallin H. Oaks, and Henry B. Eyring, the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints shared a beautify Christmas message. They wrote, “This Christmas season, we invite you to find quiet moments to reflect on our Savior’s birth, life, and atoning sacrifice. Come unto Him. Learn of Him. Look to Him for lasting peace and divine rest.” (The First Presidency’s 2022 Christmas Message, November 25, 2022).

From Thanksgiving until Christmas Day, I will share a small and simple way to remember Jesus Christ and keep Christ in Christmas. Each mini-devotional can be shared as a family or used for your personal gospel study. This year also includes a small and simple service idea to help #LightTheWorld.

One way to focus on Jesus Christ during Christmas is to learn about His many names. The Gospels, in the New Testament, contain many names of Jesus Christ in the first few chapters of each book. Praying you can find joy this Christmas season as you find ways to keep Christ in Christmas.

 

NAME OF CHRIST:

Bread of Life

BIBLE VERSE: Bread of Life

JOHN 6:51 – “I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”

ALMA 5:34 -“Yea, he saith: Come unto me and ye shall partake of the fruit of the tree of life; yea, ye shall eat and drink of the bread and the waters of life freely;”

GENERAL CONFERENCE QUOTE: Bread of Life

 “Our wounded souls can be healed and renewed not only because the bread and water remind us of the Savior’s sacrifice of His flesh and blood but because the emblems also remind us that He will always be our “bread of life” and “living water.”
-Cheryl Esplin,
 October 2014 General Conference
