Advent Conversation Two from Isaiah 9:  “Out of Aloneness and Into God’s Presence”

Advent Conversation Two from Isaiah 9: “Out of Aloneness and Into God’s Presence”

First, Seek Him...

We are surrounded by people, but sometimes we feel alone. Through Jesus, God made a way to be with us – so we are never alone, not in the good times or the bad times! How have you experienced His Presence in your life? Seek Him about this!

...Then Speak Him

When you truly experience God’s Presence, you will want those entrusted to you to experience Him, too. Use this conversation to talk about what “God with us” means and encourage those you love to receive the “present’ of His presence! Speak Him today!

Listen to the Podcast

Isaiah 9:3+6
“They will be glad in Your presence…For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us…”

Word

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

There are times when all of us feel alone, so God made a way to be with us. He promised to send a Son, and when Jesus was born, the angel said His very name would mean “‘God with us.” (Matthew 1:23b). God’s presence is the amazing “present” of Christmas! As we light our second Advent candle, we are reminded of how important this gift is! ~ When do you feel alone? What must you do with a gift or present if you want it to be yours? Have you done this with God’s offer to be with you?

Why

God, why does this matter?

God’s presence makes all the difference in our lives. We can do life on our own, or we can seek Him and experience the joy of being close to Him. At Christmastime and always, it’s easy to be distracted from seeking His presence. Yet this “present” of God’s presence is a gift He continually offers, for He said, “You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13). ~ Have you ever experienced God’s presence? What are some ways we can seek God’s Presence in our lives? Do you do this?

What

God, What Else Does Your Word Say About This?

It is so fun to find a present TO you and FOR you! Our verse this week says, “A Son will be given TO us…”, and then the New Testament says, “God is FOR us” (Romans 8:31). In other religions, people must work to get to their god or become a god. Not us. The One we worship, the God of the Universe, is a God who loves us so much that He came TO us and is FOR us! What an incredible gift! ~ Do you have or want to have a real relationship with Jesus? How have you experienced that God is FOR you?

Worship

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

It is so fun to find a present TO you and FOR you! Our verse this week says, “A Son will be given TO us…”, and then the New Testament says, “God is FOR us” (Romans 8:31). In other religions, people must work to get to their god or become a god. Not us. The One we worship, the God of the Universe, is a God who loves us so much that He came TO us and is FOR us! What an incredible gift! ~ Do you have or want to have a real relationship with Jesus? How have you experienced that God is FOR you?

Isaiah 9:3+6
“They will be glad in Your presence…For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us…”

A Family Blessing

A Blessing from this Lesson to Speak over Those God has Entrusted to You!
