Introduction

A star in the sky signaled Hope had come to a condemned world. Wise men today still seek Him and find a hope that can conqueror all! Hope does not travel alone. How we respond to the information we have about Jesus determines what impact He has on our lives. With hope came peace, with Jesus came peace, because He himself is our peace. Jesus changes everything.

Discussion Questions

(The goal is to grow in our relationship with Christ and each other. It is ok if you don’t cover every question.)

1. Who is someone you think of when you hear the word “peacemaker”? Explain.

2. Would you say that you seek to be a peacemaker? Why or why not?

3. What did Jesus do to make peace between you and His Father?

4. How does the peace Jesus gives you empower you to be a peacemaker?

5. What keeps you from experiencing peace and making peace with others?

6. Is there anyone against whom you’re holding a grudge and withholding peace? How might letting that go lead to a greater sense of happiness?

7. Read Ephesians 2:12-16. Do you live as though there is still “a dividing wall of hostility”? What does it look like to embrace the broken wall?

Moving Forward

You ask and do not receive because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. James 4:3 CSB

Changing Your Mind

We only get anxious when we want to see further down the path than He wants us to see. There is peace in the longing and waiting for God.

Prayer 

Pray to close your group, Holy Spirit, help us to be people of peace in a world that needs the peace You secured with Your blood on the cross.
