Suggested Icebreaker: What is your favorite Christmas movie or show?

*** Summarize this week’s message from the Pastor’s Sermon Notes. ***

Passage: Luke 2:1-20

1.  What did you learn or takeaway from this week’s message?
2.  What is the significance of the manger (symbolically speaking)?  Why didn’t God arrange for a nobler birth for Jesus?
3.  Why are people frightened by the appearance of God’s angels?  Why aren’t angels seen more often?
4.  Why were the people of Bethlehem so callous that they would even turn away a woman in labor?  Is the world any less callous today?  How about Christians?
5.  Application:  Seeing the various prophecies that were fulfilled in Christ, how can anyone NOT believe?  Who will tell them, so that they can believe?
6.  Application:  There was no room for Jesus on the day He was born, but is there room for Him in your home today?  What would you remove from your home if you knew the Lord was coming to visit you there?
