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.


Sermon Questions:

  1. Pray
  2. Read Matthew 9:9-17
  3. 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?
  4. “Understanding our sin is a prerequisite for us knowing Jesus as our Savior.”  What do you think this previous sentence means?
  5. 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?
  6. 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?
  7. Have you ever demonstrated love to someone and because of that demonstration been looked down upon by other Christians or religious people?
  8. What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
