Discussion Questions

  1. What is the meaning of Christmas? How can we keep the true meaning of Christmas at the forefront of our minds?
  2. Read John 4:23-24. What does Jesus mean by true worshipers?
  3. Why is it essential that we be rooted deeply in the scriptures (both OT and NT)? What happens it we lose sight of either?
