In his Christmas message, Pastor Minter examines the roles of Joseph, Mary, and Elizabeth as they prepared for the coming of the Christ-child.
DISCUSSION QUESTIONS FOR SHEPHERD GROUPS
- Which character in the Christmas story do you most relate to? Are there any you look at differently after this week's sermon?
- Choose a Christmas hymn (or two), and "ponder" the theology behind the lyrics.
- Read Luke 1:46-55 — the "Magnificat" — and discuss some of the truths about God that Mary proclaims. Can you praise God like this in your own heart?
- How can you use this Christmas season to share with unbelieving friends and family the miracle of Christ's birth, His redemptive mission, and the way of salvation?
