On Sunday, December 10, 2017 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on Luke 1:39-45.  This message was part 2 of the “Mary’s Christmas” series.  Below you will find a set of questions related to the message for personal reflection or group discussion.

Sermon Questions:

  1. Pray
  2. Read Luke 1:39-45
  3. Imagine you were Mary.  You have just learned that you are pregnant with Jesus.  How would a visit to your cousin Elizabeth be an encouragement to you?
  4. What are some times in your life where you have been encouraged by the presence of another person during a time of challenge or joy?
  5. Can you think of a situation right now in the life of someone you know where you feel prompted by God to simply be a “presence” in that person’s life?  What can you do this week to encourage that person?
  6. Near the end of the message today, a simple 4 step process was laid out for following Mary’s example of faith.  Pick one area of your life that is a particular challenge to you right now and run it through the 4 point grid discussed in the message:
  • What do I feel/think about _______?
  • What does God say about ______?
  • I choose to believe what God says about  _________.
  • Live consistent with that belief & be blessed.

7. What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
