It’s Saturday, one day away from Christmas, and here are today’s Advent Bible verses from the new Common English Bible translation as I participate in the “Thank You – Come Again – I Promise” blog tour.

Saturday – John 1:1-3, 14 and Romans 6:23 (CEB)

v In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The Word is with God in the beginning. Everything came into being through the Word, and without the Word, nothing came into being. 

The Word became flesh and made its home among us. We have seen his glory, glory like that of a father's only son, full of grace and truth.

The wages that sin pays are death, but God’s gift is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

As part of this blog tour, I’ve been given the opportunity by the Common English Bible Committee to offer my readers a free copy of the softcover edition of the Common English Bible for each week of the blog tour (which runs through January 31, 2012)!

For this week, please leave a message on Sunday’s blog post (the link is on the top right hand side of the blog) telling me what you think about this new translation. Please leave your email address also, so I can contact you to get your mailing address.

The deadline to enter for this week will be tonight at 11:59 pm ET. Please limit one entry per person. The winner will be chosen from all entries by the Random Number Generator tomorrow, Christmas. All the best to you!
