Expecting the Unexpected: An Unexpected Responsibility


What if God gives you a purpose for which others have told you that you don’t qualify? “Build my kingdom on earth” is a pretty big responsibility. The shepherds were given the task of announcing the beginning of this new kingdom, and now it’s up to us to begin establishing it in our world. Will we listen to the voices telling us we don’t qualify for that job? Or, like the shepherds, will we believe we are exactly the one God is calling? 


This week’s #WholeLifeTakeAways:

  • How are you wired-do you love the unexpected or are you a little unnerved by the unexpected?
  • What was one of your best unexpected adventures?
  • When you think of something happening unexpectedly do you have a positive or negative in your mind?
  • What good memories do you have of sitting around a break room or campfire just sharing life
  • How do you think you’d react if a dark night you were visited by a brilliant angel?
  • How does the idea of unexpected responsibility sit with you?
  • What makes it hard to believe this is “good news for all people”?
  • How could the shepherds not tell everyone about the baby and the directions the angels gave all matching up?
  • What do you think about the Bible being God telling us “I’m with you,” and asking, “Will you be with me?”
  • What will it mean for you to be with God this season?
