On Sunday, January 15, 2023 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on 2 Corinthians 1:12 – 2:4. This message was part 2 in the “Mission: Prep” sermon series. Below you will find questions related to the message for personal reflection or group discussion. You will also find audio and video of the message to listen to/watch, download or share.
- Read 2 Corinthians 1:12 – 2:4
- Have you ever “rejected a message” because of the “messenger”? Describe that event and see if you can determine what contributed to your rejection.
- Have you ever been misunderstood (as you were serving/ministering to someone else)? Have you ever misunderstood someone else as they were serving/ministering to you?
- Paul argued that if you checked his heart you would see that his motivations were pure in his actions toward the Corinthians. Think of your own times of ministering to/serving others. How pure are your motives as you serve others? If challenged (and your heart was laid open) would your motives stand up under inspection?
- Why does personal integrity matter so much for someone who ministers in Jesus name (according to the verses we read today)?
- What is an area of personal integrity that you need to improve in the days ahead?
- What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
