This free Christmas bible study is designed to help people learn more about Jesus. You can use this Christmas bible study in your youth group, church gathering, or as a personal Bible study on the story of Christmas.
Christmas is a clear reminder of the blessings of God. When we think of Christmas, our minds tend to lean towards the materialism of the season, from little rocking horses made by elves to expensive gadgets gathered under the tree. Sure, gifts are great, but we must not let the gifts distract us from the glory. Jesus is proof that God’s greatest gifts aren’t material at all.
This Christmas Bible study will help you praise God through the Christmas season.
Here is How the Christmas Bible Study Breaks Down:
Week 1: You Have Found Favor
What comes to mind when you think of God’s favor? For most people, it’s probably something like finding a twenty dollar bill in their coat pocket or getting an amazing deal on their dream car. Favor isn’t always a fairy tale, though— just look at Mary.
Scripture: Luke 1:30-33
Week 2: Pain, Pressure and Peace
Around the Christmas season, it’s ironic that we can celebrate peace on earth while struggling to find peace in our hearts. We can find peace in a personal relationship with Jesus.
Scripture: Luke 2:13-14
Week 3: Why do we Give Gifts on Someone Else’s Birthday?
Giving is an overflow of love, so you can strive to show the love of God by giving. Jesus spent His whole ministry giving. From feeding thousands to serving those in need to ultimately giving His life, Jesus personified generosity. We are called to mirror Him and do the same. To live a generous life is to live a godly life.
Scripture: Matthew 2:9-10
Week 4: When Light Breaks the Night
We love lights around Christmas, right? From the glow of a Christmas tree to the flicker of a candle, even a little light destroys darkness. Just like the lights in our home, Jesus destroys the darkness in our hearts. If you are experiencing darkness now, know that God is with you. Pray through your pain. Open up your heart. Lean on Jesus. And the light will break the night.
