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.

Sermon Questions:

  1. Pray
  2. Read 2 Corinthians 1:12 – 2:4
  3. Have you ever “rejected a message” because of the “messenger”?  Describe that event and see if you can determine what contributed to your rejection.
  4. 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?
  5. 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?
  6. Why does personal integrity matter so much for someone who ministers in Jesus name (according to the verses we read today)?
  7. What is an area of personal integrity that you need to improve in the days ahead?
  8. What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
