Living Water: 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:

Living Water

BIBLE VERSE: Living Water

REVELATION 7:17 -“For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”

BOOK OF MORMON VERSE: Living Water

1 NEPHI11:25 – “And it came to pass that I beheld that the rod of iron, which my father had seen, was the word of God, which led to the fountain of living waters, or to the tree of life; which waters are a representation of the love of God; and I also beheld that the tree of life was a representation of the love of God.”

GENERAL CONFERENCE QUOTE: Living Water

I pray that we can come to the Savior, like the woman at the well, and drink of His living water. With the people of Samaria, we can then declare, ‘Now we believe, … for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.’”
-Susan H. Porter, April 2022 General Conference
