Wednesday Night Discussion Questions
Topic: Part 1 –Jesus is Our Gift
Speaker: Nathan Sell, Middle School Pastor
Date: November 30, 2022
The Christmas season is filled with excitement and joy as people give gifts, attend parties and spend time with one another. But, if we are not careful, the business of the Christmas season can cause us to miss Jesus– the true reason we celebrate Christmas. During this season, there are a lot of things that we expect and hope for. Perhaps the greatest expectation we should have is to encounter Jesus. Unfortunately, people seem increasingly focused on the material aspects of Christmas, rather than the true gift that we receive through Jesus. Through Jesus, we receive the opportunity to be in a saving relationship with Him. It is through this relationship that we receive the gifts of salvation, love, joy, hope and peace.
