Dec 11, 2022 | Make Room for Others

We make room for God’s purposes by making room for each other.


Luke 1:39-56

Opening Questions

  1. How have you been able to B.L.E.S.S. others recently?
  2. Do you enjoy a good debate or keeping the peace?

Bible Discussion

  1. Read Luke 1:39-56. In what ways do Mary and Elizabeth stir one another?
  2. Mary would have traveled around 90 miles to see Elizabeth (probably in a caravan for safety). Why do you think it was so important to Mary to visit Elizabeth and tell her this news?
  3. The famous song of Mary, “The Magnificat”, isn’t sung after she meets with the Angel, but after Elizabeth speaks over her with a Word from the Spirit. What does this tell us about the role of others in the big moments of our lives?

Life Application

  1. What dreams do you have that are waiting to be born?
  2. Who else needs to hear that dream and encourage you?
  3. What dream, passion, or talent do you see in someone else that you need to name?
  4. How might God want to use you to encourage the dreams of others?
