Christmas

How would you describe yourself in three words?

What three words do you think God would use to describe you?

What about your personal life or story currently shapes your perspective?

Focusing on the main thought, do you think your general view of life effects how you “do life”?

Read Luke 2:16. What do you normally “hurry” to do? What would it look like to “hurry” to be in the presence of the Lord?

Who or what do you usually turn to when you have a problem?

What about your circumstances can some times make them feel bigger than God?

What is a practical step you could do to stop “looking around” and start “looking up”?

What kind of emotions do you find yourself feeling during the Christmas season?

What are some of the questions you find yourself asking God?

Read Matthew 2:1-12. How does the story of the wise men (or some times called Magi) parallel your story?

In what places have you looked over the course of your life trying to find the answers to your deepest questions?

What is a situation in your life when the answer to the question was a person?

It’s natural to look far to try to find the answers to your questions. Why do you think it’s significant that when we look far, God comes near?

How can the presence of a personal God in your life help you more than an answer to your question?

Main Thought: Maybe the answer to my deepest questions isn’t an answer, maybe it is a person.
