Advent Week 3

This week you will light your pink candle or 3rd blue candle

Advent Week 3

Week one we celebrated Promises
What promises did you make to your family?
Have you fulfilled it yet? If not what is stopping you?
Week two we celebrated Angels
How do angels help us, and protect us?
Week three the candle represents Rejoicing.
Which Candle should we light?

Scripture Reading
John 3:16-18, James 1:17 –
Luke 2:1-8
Psalms 46:10-11, Revelations 3:20- Are we as preoccupied as the towns people in Bethlehem
Matthew 25:1-13
Take advantage of the Christmas light this season to remind us that Jesus is the light of the world. (Visit Henson Robinson Zoo’s Christmas Lights) If anyone knows of a Christmas walk, Angel Tree, Go experience what it might have been in Bethlehem at that time. Look at how other cultures celebrate Christmas. Invite someone to spend the holiday with your family if you know of someone who may be alone.

Scripture to look at
What is a Sacrificial gift? (Luke 21:1-4)
What did it cost God the Father to give us His gift? (Philippians 2:6-11)

Jesus calls His believers the Light of the world. Why is that important? (Matthew 5:14-16)
What are some ways your light has shone to others this Christmas season? What ways can it still shine? (Matthew 25:40, Matthew 7:12)
