The Nativity Scene
Listen to our daily Advent story beginning December 1.

The nativity scene illustrates the night of Jesus’ birth. From the moment Adam and Eve sinned, mankind was separated from God. This broke the Father’s heart and immediately He set a plan in motion to send His Son, the Messiah, to rescue and restore the Father’s relationship with His children. God had been dropping hints about the coming Messiah for hundreds of years. Hints like: a child would be born of a virgin, in the town of Bethlehem, and he would be a descendant of King David. God’s word even points to the star of Bethlehem and the Magi.
Luke 2:10-11 say, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”
God delivered His promised gift exactly as He said He would.
Think about why the story of Jesus’ arrival gives us joy, peace, and hope.
