This Christmas series is an amazing tool that will help prepare your church in celebration of our coming savior. Not only that, but if your church follows Advent, this series can complement each Sunday.
Nobody would expect lowly shepherds to be some of the first to hear about the birth of the Messiah. But God’s angel comes to these men with good news, calling them to praise. They’re invited to be part of the story, reminding us that God calls us all to Himself.
Having just heard from angels, three shepherds argue about who should get to go see the new Messiah and who should have to stay back and “sheep-sit”.
Let us join with Mary & Joseph, The Angels, The Shepherds, and the Wise Men to celebrate, proclaim, and worship Jesus. Great for Christmas Eve.
Jesus’s presence is constant and available but it must be sought out. This was true for the shepherds and wisemen and it’s true for us today. Through his Holy Spirit he draws near to those who draw near to him and he promises that those who seek will find him.
