{Week 4}–  Peace Devotional

Finding Peace in the Midst of the Chaos this Christmas 

The Bible reminds us that there are moments of chaos in the Christmas story. A story that – from the world’s perspective – is anything but peaceful in the events leading up to Christ’s birth.

As followers of Christ, together we can be messengers of peace this Christmas.

Grace and peace to you from God our Father.

“And Mary said: ‘ My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.’” Luke 1:47

Luke 2:8-21  English Standard Version (ESV)

The Shepherds and the Angels

And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear.10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths 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,
    and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

15 When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. 17 And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. 18 And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 19 ButMary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.

21 And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

Monday – Light 4 candles. Have a “Happy Birthday Jesus” party with your children and some of their friends! Before the party, encourage the children to bring a gently used or new gift to give to children in need. A great time to host this party is during the when kids are out of school for their Christmas break. During the party read stories about the true meaning of Christmas, sing Christmas songs and share with them the importance of Christ’s birth.

Tuesday – Light 4 candles. Have your children act out Luke 2:8-21 or have them create a movie with a playable nativity scene using your video camera on your phone and send it to family and friends.

Wednesday – Light 4 candles. Take time to pray together as a family and rejoice for God’s wonderful gift of Jesus!

Thursday– Light 4 candles. Take time to be still and thank Jesus for all that He has done in your life.

Friday – Light 4 candles. Write a thank you letter to Jesus, you’re your children, thanking Him for how He has worked in your life this past year.
Thank Him for loving us enough to save us from our sins.

Christmas Day

One of my all time favorite Christmas memories, is celebrating Jesus’s birthday with a birthday cake Christmas morning! I know that’s not the healthiest breakfast, but we are called to celebrate! In my family we made the cake the night before and then sang “Happy Birthday” to Jesus, Christmas morning before eating the cake!

Be blessed.

Happy Advent Sunday!
