On Sunday, May 28, 2017 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on Matthew 5:17-48.  This message was part 5 of the “Sermon on the Mount” series.  Below are a set of questions for personal reflection or group discussion related to the message.

Sermon Questions:

  1. Pray
  2. Read Matthew 5:17-48
  3. How has the pain of divorce impacted your life?  How does Jesus’ teaching on divorce encourage/discourage you?
  4. Where are you currently being tempted to exact personal revenge for a past hurt?  How does Jesus’ teaching in 5:38-42 challenge you?
  5. Who is someone who feels “unloveable” to you?  How can you begin to love them through prayer this week?
  6. React to John Stott’s comments on this section of the Sermon on the Mount – “Only a belief in the necessity and the possibility of a new birth can keep us from reading the Sermon on the Mount with either foolish optimism or hopeless despair.”
  7. What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
