Scripture:

We are glad you have chosen to join us today. May these verses of Scripture help deepen your experience of God this morning as well as be a resource beyond today.

Scripture: Luke 2 (NRSV)

The Birth of Jesus

2 In those days a decree went out from Emperor Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2 This was the first registration and was taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 All went to their own towns to be registered. 4 Joseph also went from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to the city of David called Bethlehem, because he was descended from the house and family of David. 5 He went to be registered with Mary, to whom he was engaged and who was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for her to deliver her child. 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.

8 In that region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 Then an angel of the Lord stood before 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; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: 11 to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace among those whom he favors!”

15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 So they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the child lying in the manger. 17 When they saw this, they made known what had been told them about this child; 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds told them. 19 But Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.

 

 

 

HE HAS COME FOR US

 

God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ, our Saviour
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray
O, tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O, tidings of comfort and joy

He has come for us, This Jesus
He's the hope for all Mankind
He has come for us, The Messiah 

Born to give us life

From God, our heavenly Father
A blessed angel came
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by name
O, tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O, tidings of comfort and joy

He has come for us, This Jesus
He's the hope for all Mankind
He has come for us, The Messiah
Born to give us life

All the angels sing "Hallelujah!
"Jesus Christ is born!"
All the children sing "Hallelujah!
"He is Christ the Lord!"

He has come for us, This Jesus
He's the hope for all Mankind
He has come for us, The Messiah
Born to give us life
He is born to give us life

All the angels sing "Hallelujah!
Jesus Christ is born! "
All the children sing "Hallelujah!
"He is Christ the Lord!"

Soul Food For Christmas

Luke 2:10-11

Dec 21, 2014

 

Warm Up:

Read the following key verses today and circle the words that most jump out at you. Why is that?

 

10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: 11 to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord.

 

Diving In:

 

1) Take a moment to read Luke 2 and get the context of this verse for today. What did you remember from this story? What was new? How does this context impact your understanding of the angel's words in Luke 2:10-11?

 

2) Today's message will focus on the following statements taken out of these verses.

 

  • Do not be afraid
  • Good news of great joy
  • For all the people
  • To you is born this day
  • a Saviour who is Messiah and Lord

 

Feel free to make any notes under these that you want to remember or that have some sense of God's activity in your life.

 

Which of these are most significant for you this Christmas? Why is that?

 

What are the action items or things that this verse leads you to do?

 

Take Home:

Memorize these two verses and keep them in your heart and mind as a mantra for your soul over the next few days.
