ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS: WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT?: PASTOR ZACH BEARSS: DEC 8, 2019
Do you remembers what Christmas gifts you received last year? What are some of the things on your Christmas list for this year?
Read James 3:13-4:10. Contrast the things of this world that we pursue that are temporary in nature versus the things of God which are eternal in nature.
Discuss this quote by C.S. Lewis: “It would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea.”
Read James 1:17. How can we apply this verse in our lives for seeking what truly satisfies us spiritually?
Take some time to ponder these questions:
- What is it that I really want for Christmas?
- What has God placed in your heart that would satisfy our infinite, eternal hearts?
- Have you taken the time to prepare Him room this Christmas season? If not, take some time to do so now.
Pray that the Prince of Peace (from Isaiah 9:6-7 and Luke 1:76-79) would rule as Lord of our lives during this holiday season as we celebrate Christ’s birth.
