The Bible is the story of God’s rescue plan for us; Jesus was sent to earth to save us from our sin. That’s what John 8:12 means when it says Jesus is the LIGHT. Even though He was the light of the world, He was born surrounded by animals and hay. If your neighborhood has a local, live Nativity scene, it could be fun to visit. What’s YOUR favorite Nativity animal?
To remind yourself of how GREAT God is, write down some of your favorite Bible verses (here are some of ours)—and put them in a stocking (or sock. regular socks are good too). For the remainder of Advent (and longer, if you want!), pull a verse out of the stocking each day and read it together.
