I am so grateful to those who have responded by personal email to my worship preparation on this blog....several stories are painfully personal yet speak volumes about how Jesus Christ continues to come alongside us in the twenty-first century. And I know many others have been following progress! Thank you.
These questions arise for me from this next sermon. Perhaps they will help trigger responses as we go on preparing together.
1. Our words reveal our character. Reflect on occasions when you have heard good words which showed Christian character?
2. Why do some say these words “Why do you call me Lord, Lord and do not do the things I say?” are some of the saddest words uttered by Jesus in the New Testament?
3. Only when we stand before the judgment seat of Christ (2 Cor 5:10) will our true character be shown. What practical difference does this truth make to our lives as individuals, and as a church community?
4. Are there ways by which we can encourage each other to be accountable to the Lord Jesus Christ in our daily living?
Looking forward to Sunday!
