There is such a sense of expectancy in the Christmas season. We hope our gifts for others are “just right,” we hope everyone gets along at our various gatherings, we hope to make lasting and meaningful memories, and sometimes we hope for that perfect gift. Before Jesus came the first time, all of creation hoped for God to send the One that would rescue the world. Kari Jobe’s song, “When Hope Came Down,” calls us to examine Christ, who “came down” to do the will of the Father.

You and I are included in Father God’s plan. This week we see the express purpose of Hope coming down.

In this episode, I discuss the following:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
    • Repetition
    • Reading in a variety of translations
    • Listening to an audio version of Scripture
    • Reading aloud
    • Sharing with friends
    • Asking questions
  • The account of the angels lifting up their voices – Luke 2:1-21
  • The desperate plea for God to “rend the heavens and come down” – Isaiah 64:1
  • Jesus declares that he “came down from heaven” – John 6:38
  • Jesus gets to the heart of the motives of the people – John 6:25-27
  • Matthew Henry’s commentary comments that the people weren’t seeking good doctrine, but full bellies
  • Jesus’ challenge to us to focus on the eternal, not the temporal – John 6:27
  • The people’s limited understanding of the purpose of manna from heaven – John 6:25-31
  • Jesus defining the foreshadowing of manna from heaven – John 6:32-33
  • Discovering the purpose of the true Bread of Heaven – John 6:32-40
  • Application questions:
    • What does God want me to think/understand?
    • What does God want me to believe?
    • What does God want me to desire?
    • What does God want me to do?
Additional Resources This Week’s Challenge Spend some time in John 6, where we see an exchange between Jesus and a crowd seeking after Him. Jesus declares that He “came down from heaven” for a purpose. Read all about it for yourself and then ask yourself the application questions: What does God want me to think/understand? What does God want me to believe? What does God want me to desire? What does God want me to do?
