LifePoint Kids – December 19
In week three, we head to the familiar Christmas passage in Luke 2:1-20, where we read how Jesus was born in Bethlehem! We find that God didn’t announce Jesus’ birth to kings or government officials. Rather, God sent an angel choir to announce this news to a bunch of shepherds on a hillside. The shepherds ran to find Jesus, where they worshipped Him. When they left, they were so full of joy that made sure to tell everyone what they had seen.
Bottom Line: Celebrate because God sent a Savior. We all know that Christmas is about Jesus, but sometimes it’s just too easy to think Christmas is about lights and decorations and presents. Those things aren’t bad, but it’s important that we stay focused on the truth of what we celebrate at Christmas—that God loved us so much and sent Jesus to rescue us.
