The Greatest Story Ever Told

From our earliest days, we’re captivated by stories. God has written the greatest story ever told. And this story even includes you. Born separated from God, every person needs to be rescued. God, in His love and grace, offers a free gift to all—a solution to our problem. Jesus was born, then died, so you could experience real life.

Discussion Questions

Even though Christmas leans toward shameless commercialism, what good memories or traditions do you enjoy in celebrating the holiday?

How would you describe, in simple terms, why Jesus was born? What does this story mean to you?

The Christmas story begins with humanity in trouble. Read Isaiah 9:2. In what sense were people living in darkness? What does it mean for a person to be spiritually lost?

God came to earth in the person of Jesus. Read John 1:1, 14. What was Paul’s personal perspective about the coming of Jesus (Read 1 Timothy 1:15-17)?

Since Christmas is a season of gift-giving, it’s easy to remember that God gave the ultimate gift in His Son. Read 2 Corinthians 9:15. Why is this gift so unusual but powerful (Romans 3:21-24 and Romans 6:23)?

How might the free gift of salvation motivate you to live your life in order to please God? How can you please God by the way you live?
