Don’t just take our word for it . . . take His! We would encourage you to spend time examining the following Scriptures that shaped this sermon:Luke 20:9-19
Jesus tells a parable in which he recounts history, reports breaking news and foretells the future. What is more, he unfolds the Father’s plan for salvation at the same time. As he does, he reveals that:
- God is generous.
- We are sinful.
- God is patient.
- God will judge.
- Jesus triumphs.
- Have you ever taken time to consider how generous God is with you? What has he entrusted to you? Take a few minutes and make a list of everything you can think of that God has given to you.
- Do you ever find yourself forgetting that all that you have is actually God’s? What do you do this with most often?
- How has God shown patience in salvation history? How has God shown his patience to you?
- Do you ever mistake God’s patience for permission to do whatever you please?
- How is the idea of God judging the world problematic for our culture? How is it problematic for you?
- “If God is not a God who judges, he is certainly not a God who loves.” How do you respond to this idea? How would you explain it to someone?
- Jesus told a story that recalled the past, reported the present and foretold the future. What does this say to you about who he is?
- Is there a particular area of your life where you are acting more like an owner rather than a tenant?
- The outline and application questions are intended for your further reflection and action upon the weekend message. They are also designed to facilitate discussion and accountability within your LifeGroup.
