Review and Discussion
Challenge your child to retell the story. Help him or her remember key details by asking the following questions:
- What did the angels tell Mary and Joseph? (Mary would have a baby who would be God’s Son.)
- What good news did the angel tell the shepherds? (“Your Saviour has been born.”)
Read the following thought aloud to help increase your child’s understanding:
A saviour is someone who rescues someone else. Sin creates a separation between us and God that we cannot repair. Thankfully, God loved us enough to send Jesus, our Saviour, to save us from our sin and bring us back to Him.
Explore God’s Big Story
Together, discover how this specific lesson ties into God’s Big Story. Read the following aloud to your child:
Sin separates us from God. But God loves us so much that He made a plan to bring us back to Him. God sent His Son, Jesus, to be our Saviour.
The Saviour (reach both hands high in the air and look up)
—yes, the Messiah, the Lord (point both hands up)—
has been born (pretend to rock a baby in your arms)
today in Bethlehem, the city of David (point forward)!
Luke 2:11 (NLT)
