Jesus, Beyond the Stable

Christmas, no matter when it’s celebrated, is about Jesus. It is easy to leave Jesus in the stable at the end of Christmas each year, but he didn’t stay there. This Christmas in July, we want to take time out to reflect on the reason for Christmas and how that reason is for all year round.

Reflect on the story of Jesus with one of the below Christmas Real Hope five-day Bible plans. You can find even more Christmas Bible plans throughout the years at Hope 103.2 Real Hope Devotions.
