Week 2 – Jesus birth is announced

600x400 advent studies


Being a Christian means being on a journey with God, both through our own experience of him and that   recorded in the bible.

This week as a congregation we are all going to travel together through the experience of John’s father Zechariah.

Each day, take some time to read this passage and ask yourself the following questions.

Don’t rush but find a place where you can really have a think about them.

God bless you in your journey this week.

(26) In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to the Galilean village of Nazareth  (27)  to a virgin engaged to be married to a man descended from David. His name was Joseph, and the virgin’s name, Mary.  
(28)  Upon entering, Gabriel greeted her: Good morning! You’re beautiful with God’s beauty, Beautiful inside and out! God be with you.  (29)  She was thoroughly shaken, wondering what was behind a greeting like that.  (30)  But the angel assured her, “Mary, you have nothing to fear. God has a surprise for you:  (31)  You will become pregnant and give birth to a son and call his name Jesus.  
(32)  He will be great, be called ‘Son of the Highest.’ The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David;  (33)  He will rule Jacob’s house forever— no end, ever, to his kingdom.”  
(34)  Mary said to the angel, “But how? I’ve never slept with a man.”  (35)  The angel answered, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, the power of the Highest hover over you; Therefore, the child you bring to birth will be called Holy, Son of God.
