March 26th Sermon Discussion Questions

Text: 1 Corinthians 12:12-13:13

  1. Can we look at our relationship with God as separate from our relationship with the church? Why or why not?
  2. There are two specific kinds of people threatening the unity of the body that Paul calls out in 1 Corinthians 12:14-26. How were they identified in Sunday’s message?
  3. The end of selfishness is loneliness. Do you find yourself lonely at church? In what ways can you step away from loneliness and toward community?
  4. The unmistakeable mark of Christian maturity is love as we saw in chapter 13. How does this love differ from what our culture defines as love?
  5. Does your life and presence at church match up with chapter 13? What steps do we need to take to walk this way?

Breaking Out of a Spiritual Slump

Text: Hebrews 6:7-12

  1. Verses 6:7-8 by an agrarian analogy describe two kinds of spiritual ground always found among professing Christians in any generation and their opposite responses to the tillage and watering of God’s Word. Go to Galatians 5:19-23 where the Apostle Paul describes the fruits of the esh vis a vis the fruits of the Spirit.
  2. Why is the author of Hebrews persuaded, despite his sharp warning to these 1st century Hebrew believers against apostasy, that they will stand the test? (see verse 10 and 10:32-34) Does that tell us that the best test of the roots is the fruits?
  3. If the author is, in the final analysis, convinced that those whom he is addressing are the real deal, despite some current wobbliness in their faith, why such a strong warning in verses 4-6? How did Pastor Jim explain the role of the Word of God in ‘keeping’ His own tethered to their faith?

    The Finality of Jesus Christ

    “Is there really only one way to God?” Many people love to challenge Christians with that question! Was Jesus mistaken when He claimed to be “… the way, the truth and the life?”
