Rejoice In Heaven’s Gift

Luke 2:8-12


Synopsis: The season of Advent calls believers everywhere to Rejoice In Heaven’s Gift.  On the Fourth Sunday of Advent our attention is focused on God’s gift of love as it or should I say He was delivered to a stable in Bethlehem.  The Long awaited Hope for the Messiah had come.  Now the Christians Hope is focused on His Second Coming.  The Peace of God was born into the world though the gift and that is why we rejoice.

      At this time of the year Luke 2:8-12 may be one of the most familiar Scripture passage in the Bible.  Next to it for me is John 3:16-17.  When these two passages get juxtaposed during the Advent Season I know the focus is on the story of Heaven’s Gift.  God doesn’t define love the way the world does and that is why I Rejoice.
