ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS WEEK 1

BIG IDEA: Instead of being on what from God, for what we already have through Jesus. 

EPHESIANS 2:1-10 (NLT) Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world.[a] He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else.

But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) 

For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus.

ROMANS 6:23 NKJV  – FOR THE WAGES OF SIN [IS] DEATH, BUT THE GIFT OF GOD [IS] ETERNAL LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD.

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. 10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Here’s my hope for you: 

  • You start a relationship with Jesus. 
  • Understand God is the ultimate gift giver. 

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: 

  1. What is one thing that stood out to you from this week’s message?
  2. Read Ephesians 2.1-10 as a group. What caught your attention from the text? 
  3. What is the best gift you ever got for Christmas? What made it special? 
  4. Do you ever compare yourself to others? How does it make you feel? Do you ever do it to justify your actions or to feel better about yourself? 
  5. What is a gift God has given you? Do his gifts ever go out of style or get old and obsolete? 
  6. Can you name a gift you received that you didn’t think you needed or wanted, but it turned out to be really great?
