Shepherds Abiding

As the High School Bible Teacher at Quisqueya Christian School, I have the privilege of speaking at chapel every now and then. This past Wednesday I had the opportunity to teach on the meaning of Christmas through Luke 2:1-21, focusing on Luke 2:8. In exploring why God would send angels as messengers to shepherds in their fields, we see that God has a shepherd’s heart. Christmas is about Jesus leaving home and living among us, His sheep, and laying His life down for us, so that we might have His life. Jesus is our Good Shepherd and Great King.

Key Verses:

“And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.” –Luke 2:8

"'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.'”  –Matthew 2:6, NIV

Benediction and Prayer:

“Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” –Hebrews 13: 20-21, NIV)
