Fourth Sunday in Advent

Watchword for the week — The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name. Luke 1:49

Sunday, December 24 — 2 Samuel 7:1-11,16; Luke 1:47-55
Romans 16:25-27; Luke 1:26-38

For darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will appear over you. Isaiah 60:2

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.” Luke 2:15

With excitement, great God, we, like the shepherds, look for your glory to be revealed in the birth of Jesus. May our proclamation be filled with joy and promise. Come Lord Jesus, come. Amen.
