On Sunday, December 20, 2020 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on Matthew 2:1-12.  This message was part 4 of “The Gift” sermon series.  Below you will find questions related to this message for personal reflection or group discussion.  You will also find sermon audio and video to listen to/watch, download or share.


Sermon Questions:

  1. Pray
  2. Read Matthew 2:1-12
  3. What are some of the things you have heard before about the Magi?  How does this compare with the actual biblical record of Matthew 2:1-12?
  4. Who are some of the people on the face of the earth today that popular opinion might categorize as those very “Distant” from knowledge and worship of Jesus Christ?
  5. What/who are the “stars” that the Lord used to guide you to Jesus?
  6. How might God use you to guide the distant to Jesus this year?
  7. Three basic responses toward Jesus stand out from Matthew 2:1-12:  The Scribes ignored Him, Herod rejected Him, and the Magi worship Him.  Which of these three responses best reflects your life response to Jesus right now?
  8. What stands out to you most from this passage?  Any particular takeaway?
