God’s Christmas List

Colossians 1:17 Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together.

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

1 Corinthians 13:13 Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

Hebrews 11:1 Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.

QUESTION How do you respond in ways that demonstrate your faith; that demonstrate Jesus? 

FAITH APPLICATION: KNOW, GROW, AND SHOW YOUR FAITH

Psalm 43:5 Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again—my Savior and my God!

The birth of Jesus was the app; the cross was God’s fix-it button.

Our firm trust shows the reality of what we patiently expect and joyfully anticipate; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.

HOPE APPLICATION: WE TRUST IN WHAT WE EXPECT, AND WE EXPECT OF WHAT WE TRUST

Jesus is patient and kind. Jesus is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. He does not demand His own way. Jesus is not irritable, and He keeps no record of being wronged. Jesus does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Jesus never gives up, He never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance…Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and Jesus. And the greatest of these is Jesus.

LOVE APPLICATION: AM I LIVING THE TYPE OF LIFE JESUS WOULD LIVE, IF JESUS WERE ME?
