4th Advent Reading – for December 21, 2018
We plan to light the fourth candle on the Advent Wreath to remember that God gives us Peace.
Scripture: Luke 2:10-14
“’Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.’ Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
During the past 3 weeks we lit candles to remember God’s Promise, Hope and Joy.
As we light the final Advent candle of peace, let it remind us to prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ, the Prince of Peace.
Prayer: Father, we thank you for reveling yourself though Jesus, and we praise you for the greatness of your love. Help us to share your peace with others and live our lives more like Christ every day. In His name we pray. Amen.
