It Starts with a Conversation

Advent Conversation Three from Isaiah 9:  “Out of the Unknown and Into Known by Name”

Isaiah 9:6b NASB - “And His Name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.”

First, Seek Him...

In this week’s Advent podcast and conversation, we talk about how the angels rejoiced at Christmas because humanity was about to meet Jesus in person. Centuries prior, Isaiah prophesied His Names, and, through it all, we now get to know God better. Seek Him in this today!

...Then Speak Him

Talking about each other’s names is a great springboard into talking about the Names of Jesus. Use this week’s conversation to have a meaningful Christmas conversation about Who God is! He wants us to know Him by name!

Listen to the Podcast

Isaiah 9:6b
“And His Name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.”

Word

God, what are you saying to me through this Scripture?

A name is a very powerful thing. Your name is your identity; it’s how people know you. Every person’s name is special, but Christmas is about the most special name:  the Name of Christ! We usually call Him Jesus, but He is so special that, throughout Scripture and in this week’s verse, God gave multiple names to describe Him! ~ What are some of these names in our verse? Why do you think Jesus has so many names?

Why

God, why does this matter?

It is important that we know who we follow, especially when it comes to the God we choose to worship and serve. The amazing thing is that our God wants us to know HIm! With each of His Names, God reveals to us more and more about HImself and His character. ~ What are some of the things we learn about God from His names in this verse? Why do you think God wants you to know Him by Name?

What

God, What Else Does Your Word Say About This?

When we think of important people like celebrities or heroes, we think of them by name, right? However, there is no name more important than the Name of Jesus. The New Testament tells us:  “God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the Name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth” (Philippians 2:9-10 italics added). What a privilege for us to get to know Jesus, the most important Person in the universe! And, the truth is, Jesus’ Name isn’t just a Name to know; His is the Name to worship. ~ How can you worship Jesus’ Name today?

Worship

God, How do you want me to respond to this truth?

When we really know someone, we can describe who they are. Jesus said, “I know my own, and My own know Me” (John 10:14 NASB). Just like Jesus knows you, He wants you to know Him. The angels rejoiced at Christmas because humanity was about to get to know the One they’d worshipped since before the world began. As we get to know Jesus more and more, we can worship and rejoice, too. This is what Christmas is truly all about! ~ What are some ways we can get to know Jesus better? As we light our third Advent candle, let’s thank Him for making Himself known to us!

Isaiah 9:6b
“And His Name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.”
