Week Two - Worship Works Wonders
Reminder: Watch this video the week of Dec 2 - Dec 8

This week's session will challenge you in regard to what the greatest and best "gift" brought to the Baby Jesus that first Christmas–and how it is still the most appropriate one for us to bring even today! Max will illustrate to you how much God desires you, and how the gift of your heart is the gift that blesses your Savior more than anything else you might offer. We invite you to be reminded again, the impact and importance of worship–all Because of Bethlehem.

Scripture of the Week

Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.
~ Luke 2:14

Discussion / Journaling Question

Someone has said of the modern-day church and Christians, "worship is a lost art". Indeed, very often we fail to pause and tell God how much we love Him; not only for the things he has done for us, but just for who he is! Perhaps you've heard the expression, "Seek his face, not his hand"; in other words, love and praise God for who he is; not just the things he has done for you. This can actually be difficult, as we are all such blessed people; it is very easy to slip into prayers of thanksgiving in the midst of our praise.

Questions to ponder, journal, or discuss with others enjoying this study with you:

  1. Why not pray a prayer right now, trying to just focus on praising and worshipping the Lord for who he is, not only for the things he has done?
  2. Are there things (or people or circumstances) that somehow have slipped into a priority place in your life that truly belongs to God alone?
  3. How long has it been since you told God the Father how much you love him?
  4. How long has it been since you told Jesus how much you love him?
  5. How long has it been since you've told the Holy Spirit how much you love him?
  6. Why do you think the Lord values the gift of praise so highly?
