2023 Advent - Day 17



As you prepare yourself for worship, listen to the following song, and sing along if you know it: "Rejoice" by Keith & Kristyn Getty, Rend Collective

As you worship, meditate on the gentleness of Jesus. 


Read the following passage: Luke 2: 8-21 

As you study, consider the importance of the birth of Christ being announced by the angels. Then, answer the questions below to dive deeper!

Reflection Questions: 

  • How do the shepherds in this passage highlight a connection to Jesus being the Lamb of God and our Good Shepherd?
  • The first public announcement of the Gospel was given to some of the poorest, most dirty members of Jewish society. What does this reveal about the heart of God?
  • When the shepherds were told to seek Jesus, they were immediately obedient and subsequently evangelized to many people. How does this convict you about the way you respond to God’s call?
  • How can we “glorify God and praise Him for all we have seen” in our daily walks today?


Lord, we thank You for setting the perfect example of meekness for us to follow. We praise You because You could have come in royal splendor, but You chose to come as a humble baby in a manger.
