Surrender The Season - Advent Reading Plan

Trinity Bible Church

December 2023

Follow God’s faithfulness in Scripture & surrender this Christmas season to Christ


Advent means “arrival” or Coming”, and it’s a season that begins four Sundays prior to Christmas. This Advent season, join us in waiting, reflecting and anticipating as we look back to Jesus’ first coming when He was born as a baby, and we look forward to His second coming when He will return again as King. Prepare your hearts with contemplative reflection and joyful expectation of all that God has done and will do in and through Christ.


PRAY: Begin by asking God to open your heart and mind to His word and to give you new and fresh insight.

READ: Read the passage of the day listed

ASK QUESTIONS: What does this passage say about God/Jesus?How will I live today as a result of reading this part of God’s word?
