Advent 4: Worshiping the King (December 30-January 1)
This weekend we remember the story of the shepherds. God led the shepherds to see and worship King Jesus.
When you sit at home: Read Luke 2:8-20. This part of the Christmas story tells us how both the heavenly host and the shepherds glorified and praised God for the birth of King Jesus. What does it mean to glorify someone?
When you walk along the road: Jesus’ birth is good news for everyone. God kept His promise to send His Son Jesus into the world as a baby to save us from our sins. We can be close with God forever because of all Jesus did for us.
When you lie down: Pray this prayer each day this week: “Thank You, Lord, for sending Jesus. We praise You and glorify You for all You have done for us. Amen.”
When you get up: Verse 17 says the shepherds spread the word of Jesus’ birth. How can your family spread the word about who Jesus is and what He has done for us?
