This is the Seventh Day of Christmas

Daily Office Readings after the First Sunday of Christmas: Year 2

AM Psalm 93, 96; PM Psalm 34 1 Samuel 1:1-2,7b-28; Heb 2: 10-18; Matt. 1:18-25

“Because he himself was tested by what he suffered, he is able to help those who are being tested” (Hebrews 2:18) 

This Hebrews reading (Heb 2:10–18) explains the heart and soul of Christianity. It speaks of our Great High Priest who knows firsthand what it’s like to be human in order that God may know also.  Thus the Creator becomes part of the created and dwells with us in mercy.

We thank you Lord Jesus for being born like us, for us, and saving us.  Merry Christmas: Day 7

If being forgiven is the greatest gift we can ever receive from someone, then it is also the greatest gift we can ever give to someone. Merry Christmas: Day 6

It is an extraordinary gift we have, to believe. All Christians need to live into what we believe.  Merry Christmas: Day 5

We are never to hurt or harm children, only help them, teach them, save and love them. This is what Christmas is all about. Merry Christmas: Day 4

The testimony of John the apostle about our Lord Jesus is true; Believe.  Merry Christmas: Day 3

Let us not take our hate or ill will for another with us to our mortal death.  Merry Christmas: Day 2

Our being saved has as much to do with the birth of Jesus as it does his Resurrection from the dead.  Merry Christmas: Day 1

Let us hear what the Spirit is saying to and through the saints of God and then ponder anew what the Almighty can do.  John
