The Crossing's Christmas Day Online Service with a few Christmas songs from The Crossing Worship Team and a special Christmas Day Message from Shane.
Below are a few questions you can think about or go through with your friends and family.
- What is God’s purpose for traditions? What Christmas traditions are you celebrating with your family this year that have been passed down through the generations before you? Name one tradition that God passed down to the Israelites.
- In Luke’s Christmas story, we see Mary who is chosen by God to share in His great plan of redemption for mankind. Yet she finds herself confused and fearful when the only place He has prepared for her special child’s birth is a lowly stable. When did you follow a path of faith, just as Mary did, only to find yourself in a “lowly stable” situation? How did you react? How did it turn out?
- The angels told the shepherds that their good news, and ours, was a Savior who had been born to bring peace to those on whom His favor rested. How do you know that His favor rests on you?
- Why do you think that God uses ordinary people like a young girl, a carpenter, shepherds, and us to bring about His magnificent plans for the world. Why is He using you?
