On Sunday, May 5, 2019 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on Ephesians 3:1-13.  This message was part 2 in “The Church” series.  Below are a series of questions related to this message for personal reflection or group discussion.

Sermon Questions:

  1. Pray
  2. Read Ephesians 3:1-13
  3. Do you have a favorite “mystery” story?  What makes it your favorite?  
  4. Jesus sent Paul (and by application the church) on a mission . . . a ministry . . . to share with others the Gospel.  What is the Gospel message?  Have you ever had the privilege of sharing that message with someone else?  How did it go? 
  5. In what sense is the church a “mystery” according to Ephesians 3:1-13?  Does the fact that the Old Testament did not talk about this aspect of the church impact you in any way?
  6. What message does the unity of believing Jews and Gentiles in “one Body” communicate to Jewish people?  To Gentiles?  To the angelic realm?
  7. In what way are you currently (or recently) tempted to “lose heart” or think that God is distant and uncaring about our lives?  How does Ephesians 3:1-13 help give you a mindset of continuing to walk with God regardless of the circumstances in your life?
  8. What is one particular application you took away from this message?
