Advent Celebration Week Four- LOVE
By Carri Pratt
“God so loved the world that He gave His only son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have ever lasting life.” John 3:16.
Welcome to Week Four. The theme for this week is "Love" because Jesus is the original ‘Love Child’ given for all of the earth. The angels were thrilled to see Jesus being born into and for the world:
“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host
praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace,
good will toward men!”
As you go through this week, focus on the fact that God made the ultimate sacrifice by giving you His son. What can we give back to Jesus this year for his birthday present?
Celebrating Advent is a special way to keep Jesus Christ at the center of your Christmas Season. All you need is a Bible, a few candles and a willing heart to share the true meaning of Christmas with your family.
Instructions for Celebrating Advent Week 4:
Candles to Light: 3 Purple & 1 Pink (the center white candle is for Christmas Day)
Prayer: Joining with the Heavenly Hosts we sing “Glory to God in the Highest and on earth peace, good will toward men!” Father, we pray that your love would shine through us on earth, to our fellow man. May we be thankful for Your sacrifice and may we reach out to others as your Son has done for us. Amen.
Family Scripture Reading: Luke 2:13-14
REMINDER: All five candles will be lit on Wednesday, December 25th. Check back Christmas Eve for final instructions. Merry Christmas!
Week Four is also known as “The Angel Candle” because it was the angels that declared the birth of Jesus.
