April 22nd Sermon Discussion Questions

  1. What is the connection of this passage (verses 21-41) to the immediate context (verses 17-21)?
  2. As followers of our Lord Jesus Christ, what moral effect does Jesus’s teaching in these verses have on you? In other words, what internal response(s) do you feel? What effect(s) do you think Jesus intended for His disciples to feel?
  3. In the case of non-believers, how might Jesus’s teaching be used to convince them of their sinfulness and the prospect of judgment unless they repent and place their trust in Him for salvation?
