SUNDAY MESSAGES

A Journey Through Psalm 23

Questions from the message:

  • What are your ‘valleys?’ Where do you see God in those times?
  • Where and how do feel the presence of God the most? Are you spending enough time in those places?
  • God’s rod and staff are two different things. The rod is a weapon of protection, while the staff is an instrument of guidance, direction, and restoration. In your life, where do you see Jesus using His rod and staff?

A Journey Through Psalm 23

Questions from the Message:

  • Have you acknowledged that you belong to the Good Shepherd and that as one of His, you actually have everything you will ever need?
  • As a lamb of the Good Shepherd, where are you experiencing His promised life of quiet overcoming, of rest in His presence, of confidence in His management?
  • Are you continuing to ‘feed’ on things other than that which the Lord your shepherd is providing for you?

No Other Foundation

Questions from the Message:

  • Jesus Christ is the foundation to build your life on. Is He the “rock” on which you are building your life? Where is that evident?
  • How deep are you ‘sinking your roots’ into God’s Word? What does that look like?
  • When the ‘rains, floodwaters and winds’ are threatening to overwhelm your ‘house’, how do you give those things over to Jesus to take them on for you?
  • Are you busy “growing new branches”, instead of “strengthening your roots?”

No Other Gospel

Questions from the Message:

  • How are you keeping the Gospel simple?
  • ‘Love came down and pitched His tent among us’, (John 1:14). Who are you pursuing – in the name of Jesus  so that you share the life-changing Gospel of salvation in Him with them?
  • Where is the outworking of your faith in Jesus to the world around you?
  • “The Gospel is God’s message of mercy to humanity.” (Charles Hodge). How does that message infiltrate your life? Is it evident? Could it be more evident?

No Other: Salvation

Questions from the Message:

  • ‘And they shared the word of the Lord with him and with all who lived in his household.’ (Acts 16:32) Where is God placing you so that you can be the one who ‘shares the Word of the Lord?
  • ’Is pride an issue for you? Do the decisions you make in life put your interests over God’s?
  • Where do you find your Joy?
  • Are you lost and in need of rescue? “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved…”Acts 16:31

No Other Name: Jesus

Questions from the Message:

  • When you speak in the name of Jesus, is love in the forefront of your mind?
  • What does the name of Jesus mean for you?
  • Why do we, as Christians, fall victim to the ‘He’s all mine’ mentality? Why do we at times insist on trying to ‘keep His name – and His love – for ourselves?’
  • Do you believe, know, and live in the name of Jesus?

No Other: God

Questions from the message:

  • Where do you see ‘other gods’ taking hold in your life or in your community? What is your response?
  • Can I identify my ‘other gods?’ What is standing between me and God? What values/things/gods take priority over my worship and my service?
  • To what do I give my greatest consideration and time? What, or who, is first in my life?
  • “Do I believe in God or do I believe about God?”
