On Sunday, August 27, 2017 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on Matthew 9:9-17. This message was part 3 in the “Follow” series. Below are a series of questions related to this message for personal reflection or group discussion.
- Read Matthew 9:9-17
- Imagine that you are one of Jesus’ disciples and MATTHEW is added to the team. What do you think they were thinking? Have you ever had a challenging situation with someone joining a team you were on that you had a bad history with?
- “Understanding our sin is a prerequisite for us knowing Jesus as our Savior.” What do you think this previous sentence means?
- Do you have a small group or community this fall where you gather around Jesus together? If so, what led you to join that community? If not, why not?
- What are some of the things that you tend to find your hope in BESIDES Jesus? What does it mean for you to find your ultimate hope in Jesus alone?
- Have you ever demonstrated love to someone and because of that demonstration been looked down upon by other Christians or religious people?
- What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
