Good News - Peace for the Distressed

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?
     
  • How did you do with the Isaiah reading plan throughout this series? What can be done to encourage you to have a daily reading time? If you have followed the reading plan, how can you be encouraged to continue with your own reading plan going forward?
     
  • What does ‘peace’ mean to you?

Read Isaiah 52:7-10.

  • How do you think the Israelites would have felt hearing these words?
     
  • Share a time that you remember someone giving you good news.
     
  • When was the last time you felt at peace?
     
  • What keeps you from feeling peace?
     
  • With whatever struggle you have in your life right now, if you were told, “This conflict will not last. Peace is coming.” How would you feel or respond?
     
  • How can we provide peace in our own lives and in the lives of those around us?
     
  • Does the Church do a good job of providing peace? Why or why not?

Reading Plan: Read Isaiah 61-66 this week.

Prayer: Pray that you can focus the peace that Christ brings and not get caught up in the hectic holiday celebrations.
