Family Advent Worship Week 3- Shepherds

Welcome

The Child’s family hosts this week of Family Advent. They discuss the 3rd candle “The Shepherds” candle. The 3rd week of advent is about the joy we feel about the coming of Jesus Christ. The Child’s family talk about how important shepherds are to the birth of Jesus. Jesus is often referred to as “the good shepherd”. What does a good shepherd do? Shepherds protect their flock and sheep from wolves and other creatures that may want to cause them harm. That is what Jesus does with us. We are his sheep, and he is our shepherd. He tries to protect us from sin and other things that tries to do us harm and to lead us astray. Sometimes we go down the wrong path and gets lost or turn away from God, and Jesus is here to lead us back into the loving and open arms of God.

When you receive good news you want to tell everyone. And the birth of Jesus was the best news that the Shepherds could have heard that night.

Today's Scriptures: "Luke 2: 8-12"

8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
