On Sunday, February 17, 2019 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on Matthew 20:1-16.  This message was part 7 in the “Relating to____” series and focused on “Relating to Blessing.”  Below are a set of questions related to the message for further reflection or group discussion.


Sermon Questions:

  1. Pray
  2. Read Matthew 20:1-16
  3. “God pays on the scale of grace, not the rate of merit.”  To the best of your understanding . . . what does this mean? 
  4. Think of your own life . . . in what ways has the Lord pursued you?  (i.e. through the witness of friends or family, life circumstances, Scripture, etc.)
  5. What “hour of the day” do you think you are in right now (stage of life)?  If you have already trusted in Jesus, how has that decision been a blessing to you over the years?  If you have not yet trusted in Jesus, you can do so now!  It is not too late!
  6. In the message, I made this statement, “Jealous hearts (toward others we think God has blessed more than us) do not understand salvation or the God who gives it.”  What do you think I meant by that statement?
  7. What is one particular application you took away from this message?
