Journey to the Stable
Preparing the Way: Zechariah, Elizabeth & Gabriel
Synopsis: Today we start on a journey to the stable in hopes of discovering the gift of Christmas. The Gospel of Luke will map out the way for us. We begin with the story of Zechariah and Elizabeth.
From this story we learn three important elements in preparing our hearts to receive the gift of Christmas. 1. Thanksgiving, 2. Prayer, 3. Repentance.
Part of my sermon throughout this series will be presented through a children’s story. I will be doing it in character as Luke. Each Sunday of Advent I will guide the children to a stable set up to look like a cave where I will light an advent candle. Today the candle is HOPE.
Scripture Text (NLT): Luke 1:5-25
