Dec. 17 - Everlasting Father (Isa. 9:6-7)
First listen to the sermon (posts Sun. afternoon). Then use the ideas below to help you and your group apply what the Lord is teaching you.
Icebreaker idea: What's one thing that makes a good father?
A way to pray: As we're seeking to see 2,000 people baptized and growing in relationship with Jesus by 2022, let's pray for those who don't yet know His fatherly love.
- Treasuring God: What is the significance of Jesus being called Everlasting? What about Father?
- Being Transformed: What does it look like practically to relate to Jesus as Father?
- Loving Others: What's one way can I share Jesus' fatherly love through my words and actions this week?
- Pursuing Unity: Hebrews 13:8 says, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." What is one unchanging quality about Jesus that helps me live in harmony with others (especially other believers)?
