ADVENT In Action Week Four

JESUS – an excellent, powerful, and glorious name!

Luke 1:31 says:

“You will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus.”

What’s your name? Is that the name your grandma and grandpa call you? Your teachers, friends and coaches? How about uncles, aunts or neighbors?

✝️Jesus… what a beautiful name it is! It’s a powerful, loving, and sweet name with so much authority. It is a name given by God and has dominion above all other names. This name is so unique that at this name, all people everywhere will eventually bow, honor this name, and call Him LORD! Jesus is known as Savior, The Good Shepherd, The Way, The Truth, The Life; King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Living Water; Living Bread, Bright and Morning Star.

Here are some activities to deepen our understanding of Who Jesus is as we celebrate and appreciate His great name:

  1. Search the scriptures this holy season and find as many Bible verses as you can with names of Jesus.
  2. Create a book with all the names you found.
  3. Design a cover for your book with some symbols of the names that are most important to you 🌊🕊👑💡🐑🍞🏰🛡
  4. Make a list of these names and use them in your conversations with others as you share who Jesus is.
  5. Use these names in your daily prayers.
  6. Review your learning with family and friends. Explore who Jesus says He is by creating or enjoying an electronic game with visual hints.
  7. Plan and invite families, neighbors, and others for a spelling bee including some of the Names of JESUS. Of course,  hot chocolate as everyone’s cup is filled to the overflow for sharing with others;  ice cream as everyone gets the scoop on Who Jesus really is; creative ⭐decorating  craft! JESUS is The Star -Who this praise party is all about for sure! 
  8. Celebrate His great name with love, joy and gratitude.

🙌🏾Thanking GOD for His year 2024; GET ready, Get set- Now, let’s GO!…on this journey of discovering the depth and significance of Jesus’ name. Embracing and sharing  His love, guidance, and power as we grow in our faith. This gift is fit for our KING JESUS!

✅Write your prayer using several of the names of Jesus you studied.


ADVENT-in-Action Week 4🙏🏾Dear Lord Jesus, You alone are LORD over everything, everywhere, all the time! Thank You so much for saving us when we confess our sins and invite You into all we are and all we do. You are the only Savior of the world! My Friend ; Light in dark times! I love You! Because of who You are, I bow in prayer, praise, and thanksgiving! Happy birthday, JESUS! Merry Christmas! Amen.
