FAMILY WORSHIP FOR THE CHRISTMAS SEASON
Ray Rhodes, Jr.

"In a day when having regular family worship is no longer a foregone conclusion (even among conservative Evangelicals), Ray Rhodes provides a wonderful impetus to start: a month of clear, biblical, practical devotions celebrating the birth of King Jesus. Hopefully, those who begin this Christmas using this excellent resource will continue gathering daily at the family altar throughout the coming year." - David W. Bailey, Ph.D., Author - Speaking the Truth in Love: The Life and Legacy of Roger Nicole

"Ray Rhodes has written a wonderfully creative book on family worship for the Christmas season. For a father or mother to take their children through these precious truths would create a fond memory that the children would have for the rest of their life. The book is doctrinally sound, well written, and greatly honoring to our Lord. I'm going to order three copies right now!" - Martha Peace, Biblical Counselor and author of 'The Excellent Wife'

"The Christmas season is a great time for daily family worship. If you've never enjoyed family worship on a consistent basis, there's no better time to start. Whether your family already enjoys the biblical and historic Christian practice of family worship or you're just beginning, consider using Ray Rhodes' engaging Family Worship for the Christmas Season this December." - Dr. Donald S. Whitney , author of "Spiritual Disciplines of the Christian Life' and 'Family Worship: In the Bible, in History, and in Your Home.'

"Author and speaker Ray Rhodes gives parents some expert help with these insightful and truth-filled devotional exercises for family worship during the Christmas season. Make December different this year by trying them out with your family. This book can make a significant difference in your family's understanding of the incarnation." - Jim Elliff, Christian Communicators Worldwide

"It is rare to find solid Family Worship resources in our day, let alone one for the advent season. Ray Rhodes has provided an outstanding tool for busy fathers during this opportune time of year. May God powerfully use it in the godly instruction of our families and for the generations to come!" - Pastor Jerry Marcellino, author of 'Rediscovering the Lost Treasure of Family Worship'

"The Incarnation of Jesus Christ is one of the most important events in the history of the world. Too many years families get so tangled in the trappings of Christmas, however, that they miss its true wonder. Ray Rhodes has written a wonderful book that elegantly encourages and practically helps families draw near to each another as they draw near to the Lord in celebrating his birth. I highly recommend it." - John Crotts, pastor and author of 'Mighty Men: the Starter's Guide to Leading Your Family', 'Craftsmen: Christ-centered Proverbs for Men', and co-author with Martha Peace of 'Tying the Knot Tighter'.

Introduction

This guide is designed to help you and your family to focus on Christ during the Christmas season. Family worship is most effective as you creatively find ways to involve everyone in your home. Make sure that each member of your family (even the very young ones) has his own copy of the Bible so that they may grow in their appreciation for truth. Feel free to adapt the daily lessons and activities to your family. Consider adding hymn singing to every dayís activities. It has often been suggested that, generally speaking, family worship should include; Scripture reading, singing, and prayer. In our family we often include some reading from a good book like, The Pilgrimís Progress. We generally have a brief time of Bible reading each morning and a more extended time of family worship in the evening.

On the one hand thinking about leading family worship should be a bit intimidating to you in the sense that it is essential to see your neediness for God. On the other hand if you are a Christian then the Holy Spirit lives within you and will enable you in your faithful pursuits. The thought of leading family worship should not be inappropriately intimidating. You are not preaching a lengthy sermon and are simply seeking to further expose your family to the truth. You should also encourage each member of your family to be reading the Bible on their own. I often encourage my wife and children to read from the Bible before they read anything else each morning. Family worship is exciting. You are taking ancient truth, investing it in the life of your family, and aiming for the future worship of God (Psalm 78:1-8). So get started and enjoy drawing near unto God with your family.
