In the week ahead, why not invite the Spirit to help you consider:
- Do you believe this message of certain hope found in Christ alone? If so, how would you communicate this good news to others? If not, what is it that seems unbelievable? Perhaps you could discuss this with a trusted Christian friend.
- Our opening carol reminded us of some of the names in the Old Testament we have come to see belong to Jesus. Take time to reflect on some of this small selection of verses and marvel at the awesome eternal plan God had AND HAS for his creation. Genesis 15:1-6; Deuteronomy 18:15-19; Psalm 89:1-4; Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 9:2-7; Isaiah 11:1-10; Isaiah 40:9-11; Micah 5:2; Zechariah 6:12-13; Malachi 3:1-6; Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:1-18; John 3:16-17; John 14:1-4, 28; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Hebrews 9:28; Revelation 1:7.
- We know that prayer is a powerful weapon (James 5:16-18) but often this falls down our list of priorities each day. This advent season, why not recommit to praying regularly for five people to move closer to knowing the certain hope of Jesus in their lives?
- Practically, who is God prompting you to keep an eye on — particularly over the next few months during the winter and New Year blues? Perhaps there are people you know who are particularly low at the moment. Write down their names, pray for them and be proactive in how you gently keep in touch.
Deeper Study Notes (Notes from previous weeks can be found here)
There will be no new notes until the New Year. Instead, you’re invited to take time to read through John’s gospel and reflect on what God may be saying to you each day. For more on this, visit here.
Extra worship songs to supplement today’s service. Also on our YouTube Channel playlist (NB we cannot control the content that appears on any menus or adverts):
If you’re interested in specific family worship, can we commend the Drake Family online (we sing some of their songs).
