Questions for Life Groups
- Read Mark 1:1-8. What images come to mind as you read this text? In what ways does this prophecy remind you of the Christmas Holidays? What do you hear someone shouting? What does a “straight path” look like for you?
- Read this week’s articles titled Preparations. What preparations are you doing for Christmas? What new stresses come about as you prepare for Christmas? How do you deal with them? What can you do to prepare yourself internally for the Lord coming?
- How can the members of your group help you this week and on-going to help you to be more receptive to hearing and understanding the Word of God? Pray for each other to have the Holy Spirit bless you with more courage.
