Advent Series - What Child is This?

 

Most of us have sung the Christmas song - What child is this?   Have you ever wondered about this Christ child?  Ever wonder why He came?  How did such a small baby have such great impact in the world - even today?

Within the lyrics of this famous Christmas carol we encounter characters and their actions which help answer this simple yet complex question.  This series will examine 4 different character's response to What Child is This - the perspective of the Wise Men, the Shepherds, Mary, and Joseph.  'Come and join us on a journey to discover the wonder of this little child!

We are glad you have chosen to join us today. May this verse of Scripture help deepen your experience of God this morning as well as be a resource beyond today.

 

 

Scriptures:

Luke 1:26-35 (The Message)

26-28 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to the Galilean village of Nazareth to a virgin engaged to be married to a man descended from David. His name was Joseph, and the virgin’s name, Mary. Upon entering, Gabriel greeted her:

Good morning!
You’re beautiful with God’s beauty,
Beautiful inside and out!
God be with you.

29-33 She was thoroughly shaken, wondering what was behind a greeting like that. But the angel assured her, “Mary, you have nothing to fear. God has a surprise for you: You will become pregnant and give birth to a son and call his name Jesus.

He will be great,
    be called ‘Son of the Highest.’
The Lord God will give him
    the throne of his father David;
He will rule Jacob’s house forever—
    no end, ever, to his kingdom.”

34 Mary said to the angel, “But how? I’ve never slept with a man.”

35 The angel answered,

The Holy Spirit will come upon you,
    the power of the Highest hover over you;
Therefore, the child you bring to birth
    will be called Holy, Son of God.

 

John 4:13-14 (NRSV)

13 Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, 14 but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.”

 

John 7:37-38 (NIV)

37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.

 

Psalm 42:1-2 (NRSV)

As a deer longs for flowing streams,
    so my soul longs for you, O God.
2 My soul thirsts for God,
    for the living God.

 

 


                          Going Deeper Questions:

 

1. What are you thirsty for?

 

2. In what ways do you experience  Jesus as living water?

 

3. Brian D. McLaren says that aliveness springs up like a fountain of water in us as we open ourselves to God's abundant grace.   What do you think/feel about this?

 

4. In what ways did Mary experience Jesus as living water for her?
