Anticipation of Jesus’ coming. Last week we looked at the fact that Jesus is a WONDERFUL COUNSELOR. This week Pastor Corby is helping us understand a second name of Jesus: MIGHTY GOD. And while there is a lot more to that name than we can ever cover or comprehend, we can still learn valuable lessons and truths from this name.
What do you anticipate to come up?
What are you anticipating this Christmas season? What is planned? What could come up unexpectedly? What will come up but you don’t really like it? Write a list of 2-4 things, things that you anticipate -good or bad.
Now, what comes to your mind when you hear: God is a MIGHTY GOD? What does this name mean to you? What does it trigger?
Read John 1:1-14. Underline all the things that describe God. For example: God is Light. What else is being said about God? Pick one attribute of God that stands out to you and write it down:
Corby said: “The name MIGHTY GOD was saying that this child to be born is God!”.
Where do you find yourself currently?
☐ Mountain top experience ☐ Dark Valley walk ☐ Somewhere in-between
How does knowing God as the MIGHTY GOD play into that experience? How does knowing, the mighty God is God with us! help you in difficult times? Share your thoughts. Be honest. Be vulnerable.Lord, in these times of uncertainty we want to cling to you. In times, were we anticipate pain to overwhelm us, we speak your Name.– Wonderful Counselor, Might God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace –
