Rooted’s Christmas Devotional for Teenagers

christmas devotional

We are loved by a God who always keeps his promises. Nowhere is his faithfulness more evident that in the life of Jesus. The Old Testament is rich with promises concerning our coming Messiah, and from the opening lines of Matthew, we begin to see those promises perfectly fulfilled, starting with the most intimate details of Jesus’ birth.

 Back in 2019, we invited you and your teenagers to join us for a 16-day Christmas devotional series centering around Messianic prophecies – promises – from the Old Testament, and the wonder that each one was fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ. This year we will round out that series with eight more posts, one for every day of the Christmas (or, depending on your tradition, Advent) season. Over the next three weeks we will be sharing these on the blog, but we wanted to give you the original 16 devotions so that you can easily share one per day with your students or children. Each day includes a few short questions for discussion, so hopefully this will spur conversation over the dinner table or in youth group. You’ll also find PDF links at the bottom if you like to go old school and print these out, and we will add each one to this list as it posts so you can access them all in one place.

We pray your heart will be encouraged and your faith strengthened as you and your teenagers meditate together on the game-changing truth that our God says what he means and means what he says. O Come Let Us Adore Him!
