Philippians 2:5-11 Veiled in Flesh Summary: One of the most amazing things about celebrating Christmas is remembering that Jesus, the God of the whole universe, took flesh like you and me! Christmas is great because God became a man, all to save us. That is a great reason to celebrate! Let’s think about it more: Outline: 1. The glory Jesus left… for you. 2. The humbling Jesus endured… for you. 3. The honor Jesus deserves… from you. Verse: (John 1:14) And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory… 1. What does Philippians 2:5-11 tell us about Jesus’ attitude toward His mission to take flesh and save us? 2. Why is it so important to believe that “God became man?” Why is this so central to the Christian faith? 3. Study again the humiliation of Christ in vv 7-8. How does it strike you? What should such a truth produce in you? 4. How can this passage help fuel your wonder and worship this Christmas? Think about practical ways to keep these truths before you over the next few weeks.

Luke 2:15-20 What Child is This? Summary: It's getting close to Christmas! I hope you're excited - I know I am. But can you imagine the excitement of the shepherds when they were visited by angels in the field, telling then of Jesus' birth? Those shepherds were amazed! They probably ran to Bethlehem to see the baby, and to tell everyone what they had seen! Today, let's pray that God would fill us with that kind of excitement that God has sent us a Savior! Outline: 1. How can we be silent? 2. What should kindle wonder? 3. How do we slow down and ponder? 4. What should bring us to worship this Christmas? Verse: Luke 2:14 14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” Discussion Questions: 1. As you read this passage and remember the moment of the angelic visit, what might have been your response if you heard the reports of the shepherds? Would there be skepticism? 2. What are the things that tend to quench rather than kindle wonder at Christ's coming? What are some realistic steps you can take to change that this Christmas? 3. Why do you think Mary is described the way she is in verse 19? What would
