For April 11, 2020
INSTEAD OF A WEDNESDAY WARMUP AUDIO RECORDING, WOULD YOU PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING, AND RESPOND TO ANY OF THESE BY EMAIL, IF YOU'D LIKE BY THIS FRIDAY?
In preparation for our conversation, please READ the following passage and questions:
READ Matthew 5:23 & 24(NIV)
23 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.
• Do you think Jesus is using exaggeration here, or is he actually asking us to leave worship and seek forgiveness from others before seeking forgiveness from God?
• What are our greatest challenges and what rational thoughts come to mind as we seriously try to implement this?
• Will God truly not forgive us if we do not seek forgiveness of other humans we have offended?
• What does it say about God’s character that He would make this such a serious step in His forgiveness process?
I sure can't wait to interact with you! See you soon!
Every Wednesday morning Pastor Roy Ice releases an audio podcast called The Bible Lab Wednesday Warmup. These are 5-10 minute messages that pose the major question and topic of the coming study session.
Listen on your drive to work or your daily walk. Then pray, research and come prepared to share with the group.
