Click here for the sermon discussion questions or see them listed below. We highly encourage you to listen, think, and talk about the sermon. These are questions you can reflect on by yourself, with your family, or with your small group.
- Why do you think God chose to send His Son into the world under such humble circumstances?
- How do you think Caesar Augustus would have responded if he was told that the God of Israel was using him as a pawn to ensure that prophecies made hundreds of years prior (Micah 5:2), would be fulfilled in Jesus Christ’s birth in Bethlehem? What is your response to Proverbs 21:1 “The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will”?
- Explain how a Christian can sometimes be compared to a child working on a “connect-the-dots” picture. Why is faith and endurance absolutely essential?
- In our sermon we heard that “the bookends of Jesus’ life were a manger and a cross”. He lived a life of humility and humiliation because of His great love for His people. What is your response to such great love?
