Devotions for Teenagers at Christmastime

Here at the beginning of December, we wanted to share one of the best-loved resources on our blog. Sixteen of our Rooted writers joined us to write a devotional specifically for teenagers, reminding them- and us, that we are loved by a God who makes promises and keeps promises. Now, more than ever, the hope we have in our promise-keeping God sustains us and gives us hope. Each devotional centers around Messianic prophecies – promises – from the Old Testament, and the wonder that each one came to be fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ. You can either print out or forward along to the teenagers in your care. O Come Let Us Adore Him!
