Life App: Christmas—Celebrating Jesus, God’s greatest gift.

Bible Story: Nine Months (Elizabeth & Zechariah) • Luke 1:5-25, 57-66

Key Question: What are some things you celebrate?

Bottom Line: Celebrate because God can do anything.

Basic Truth: I am loved by God no matter what so I can belong in God’s family forever.

Memory Verse: God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life. John 3:16 (NIrV)

Askthe following questions and discuss:

  • Why did people think they baby should be named Zechariah? Does anyone know why it was unusual for Zechariah and Elizabeth to name the baby John? (It may be necessary to explain the culture was to name babies after a family member. Zechariah or Elizabeth did not have a relative named John.)
  • How were Zechariah and Elizabeth celebrating God by naming the baby John? (Zechariah and Elizabeth were obeying God even though it was different from the “norm”.)
  • God can do anything but sometimes He doesn’t do what we think He should. What can help you to remember to celebrate God even when things don’t go your way?
  • [Make It Personal] Share about a time when thing didn’t go the way you thought they should, but you were able to see God’s hand in the situation. Were you able to celebrate God’s “version” of the story? 
  • What are some impossible things has God done? (Examples can be from the Bible or from their own lives.)
