SERMON NOTES/REFLECTION

I. LIVING IN THE WORLD
a. As a Christian to you believe it's possible to live like Jesus? Why or Why Not?
b. Why do you think Christians struggle and fall into the devil's schemes and sin-habits?

II. ABIDING IN THE WORD
a. Read: Is.42:1; Luke 1:35; Luke 2:1-52; John 5:19; John 17:17-19; 1Cor.6:19; 1Cor.15:45-49; Phil.2:5-8; Heb.2:14-18; Heb.10:5 1 Peter 2:21-23
b. What verses stood out to you? How might God be speaking to you specifically through these verses?
c. What do these verses reveal about Jesus?
d. Do you believe Jesus used His own divine power/status as God-incarnate to His own advantage? Why or Why Not?
e. What was Jesus' upbringing like based on the Gospel of Luke chapter two?
f. How did Jesus know what to do? How did He perform His miracles?

III. GROWING IN THE WAY
a. How are you creating opportunities for the Holy Spirit to work in your life? What about the life of your family and children?
b. What does it mean for you to "empty" yourself in order to depend more on the Holy Spirit's indwelling presence and power? In prayer, ask the Lord to make known any areas that need to removed in order for you to follow and trust in Him.

COVENANT PRAYER BY JOHN WESLEY:
“I am no longer my own but yours. Put me to what you will, rank me with whom you will. Put me to doing, put me to suffering. Let me be employed for you or laid aside for you, exalted for you or brought low for you. Let me be full, let me be empty. Let me have all things, let me have nothing. I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things to your pleasure and disposal. And now, glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, you are mine and I am yours. So be it. And the covenant now made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.”

God bless!
Pastor Trevor
