Luke 2:1-20; Romans 3:20-23
1. In what ways might you feel distant from God?
2. Are there certain times in your life or certain situations where you feel more distant from God than others? If so, what are they?
3. How have you been changed by the good news of Jesus Christ? How has this change helped you understand your status in God’s eyes
4. Who do you know that needs to hear the good news of Jesus Christ this Christmas? What can you do to share the good news with them? How can you share it with them—words, actions, listening, speaking, etc.?
Read all of the third chapter of Paul’s letter to the Romans (Romans 3:1-31) and reflect upon the ideas in the chapter on grace and status before God.
