Daily Devotional | A Ripe Harvest

  • December 10, 2023 | John 4:35

The state of Michigan is the largest producer of cherries in the United States. During the cherry season, the orchard trees are overflowing with tart and sweet cherries, ready to pick and enjoy. Jesus used this cycle of sowing, reaping, and enjoying the harvest as a spiritual object lesson.

Untangling strings of Christmas tree lights can be incredibly frustrating...but I do love the result, the sparkling glow of our fully decorated Christmas trees. Lights are an essential part of Christmas not only because they are beautiful, but because they remind us of Jesus!

Jesus called Himself the “light of the world” (John 8:12, 9:15). He said, “No one who believes in me should stay in darkness” (12:46). Join us this Christmas season for our devotional Bible study, The Light Shines: The Gospel of John, authored by Moody Theological Seminary professor Dr. Eric Moore.

We also have three Christmas gifts for you!

  1. Meet our author Dr. Eric Moore on the Today in the Word Youtube Channel. Dr. Moore is a new author, and we’ll talk about the Gospel of John and what we sometimes get wrong about Jesus.
  2. Download the December Family StudyWalk in the Light. Get four Bible lessons to share with your children or grandchildren, including questions and fun “light-filled” activities. These studies are created by students in Moody Bible Institute’s Children and Family Ministry program, led by their professor Elizabeth Smith. Beginning this January, we will have family studies every month!
  3. Finally, get your Today in the Word Study Kit. Will you remember Today in the Word during this season of giving? Your generous gifts help us share God’s Word with more people in more ways than ever before. As a token of our thanks, we have designed a helpful study kit for your time in God’s Word.

From all of us at Today in the Word, we hope you have a Merry Christmas! 

May God bless you as you study His Word,
Jamie Janosz, Managing Editor
