For further thought and discussion:

  1. When you think of the promise of Christmas what comes to your mind? What promise or promises does the season hold?
  2. What do you remember about waiting for Christmas as a child? How did that both inspire and frustrate you? Has what you are waiting for changed? How?
  3. Have you ever lost hope/faith in God’s promises? What happened? How did you recapture your hope/faith?
  4. Why do you think God made the world wait so long for the promise of the Savior to be fulfilled? What is the value of waiting for a promise to be fulfilled?
  5. Read Genesis 12:1-3 and 49:10; 2 Sam. 7:12, 13; Isa. 7:14 and 9:6, 7; and Micah 5:2. What do you learn from each of these prophesies? Think about how much time passed between each piece of the promise.
  6. Read Matt. 13:16, 17. What does Jesus tell his disciples? What responsibility does this give to those who follow Jesus?
  7. Read Acts 1:6-11. What does this passage tell us about the promise of the savior and how we are to wait for that promise to be fulfilled?
