SUNDAY MESSAGES

Lessons from the Upper Room – Jesus’ Promises

This week in our final message in Lessons from the Upper Room, Pastor Danny McDowell shares 5 of Jesus’ Promises:

  • Knowing the Father through Jesus.
  • That we are called to greater works.
  • We have a helper, and a blessing in the Holy Spirit.
  • Knowing Jesus will bring us peace.

Below are some questions from today’s message that you might like to reflect on or discuss in your small group.

  1. Do you know the Father through Jesus? Would you like to talk more about how to make Jesus your Lord and Saviour?
  2. Do you recognise, rely on, and feel blessed when you acknowledge that you have the power of the helper – the Holy Spirit – residing within you?
  3. Are you experiencing that ‘shalom’ kind of peace of completeness, wholeness, fullness, harmony and the absence of agitation or discord? Do you want that peace? What might be getting in the way?
  4. How can you bring ‘peace’ to those around you this week?

Lessons from The Upper Room – Relationships

This week, Pastor Danny McDowell shared about our relationship with Jesus; our relationship with one another in Jesus; and our relationship with the world.

Below are some questions from today’s message that you might like to reflect on or discuss in your small group. 

1. Do you know the Father through Jesus? Would you like to talk more about how to make Jesus your Lord and Saviour?

2. Have you grabbed hold of the promise that He has great works in store for you to achieve in His name?

3. Do you recognise, rely on, and feel blessed when you acknowledge that you have the power of the helper – the Holy Spirit – residing within you?

4. In Jesus, you can have peace – that ‘shalom’ kind of all-encompassing peace. Are you experiencing that peace?

Clock, Capacity and Coin (part 2). Faithful Steward = Faithful Living

How Faithful Stewards need to have faith in God, in each other, and to make stewardship personal by feeling the cost – Pastor Danny McDowell.

From the message:

  1. Are there other ‘idols’ in your life that are restricting or stopping you from your God ordained life of faithful stewardship as one of His children?
  2. Do you see ‘risk’ as a barrier or a God given opportunity to serve Him?
  3. In this parable, Matthew 25:14-30, each one of us is being asked to consider our own faithful stewardship of all that God has given to us.  Our clocks, our capacity and our coin. In what ways are you being a faithful steward of all He has given you?  Where could you be better?
  4. When you give God your clock, capacity and coin – do you feel the cost?

 

 

Clock, Capacity and Coin (part 1)

This morning Pastor Danny McDowell explores giving as a grace, God’s plan and personal priority.

From the Message:

1. What is your motivation for gracious living? To honour God or yourself?
2. Are you ‘graciously giving’ the things that God has entrusted to you – your ‘clock, your capacity, and you coinage’ and focusing on making the world a better place as you care for the people around you?
3. You were ‘bought with a price’.  You belong to God.  Are you living in a way that honours Him? When you are called to account for your life will you be able to say that you gave yourself graciously?
4. Does anything need to change in your life in order for you to be a better steward of your clock, your capacity and your coin?
