Preparing for Christ

John the Baptizer Date: December 4, 2016 Liturgical Day: The Second Sunday of Advent; Year A

Summary: Both John the Baptizer and Luther the Reformer invite us into a faith where we understand God’s presence in our lives in an entirely new way. What does this look like for us today? And how does this prepare us for Christ to come?

Some discussion Questions:

  1. How has John helped me to think about myself n a different way, and prepare myself to know Jesus?
  2. In Isaiah 11:1-10, how does Isaiah describe the work and focus of God’s Messiah?
  3. In Psalm 72:1-7, 18-19, what does this “Prayer for a King” say about what is important to God?
