Christmas Solves that Problem
The Christmas story solves an age old problem on earth; we can’t handle God’s glory. Pastor Ryan continues his Christmas messages with: “Christmas finally allows God’s glory to bring peace on earth”.
Share any ways you were able to join Jesus Christmas mission and reach out to others this past week.
What stood out to you most today?
Read Luke 2:1-14
What does God’s glory appear in this passage? What is being promised?
Read Exodus 33:18-23 and 34:5-8
How is God’s glory described? Would you have been as bold as Moses? How does God explain himself? What questions does that leave us with?
Read John 1:1-4 &14
How can John say they beheld his glory? How is this different than the encounter with Moses?
Read John 12:23-33
Why does Jesus connect his glory with his death? How does the cross display the glory of God? How does this differ from glory in our context today?
Take a moment and ask God how he wants you to respond. Is your focus on the glory of God through the hope of Christ? Are you leaving with a sense of peace because of Christ? Make a plan for how you can live different this week.
