Sunday 21st February, 9am sermon by Ps Ian Beaman
Questions for discussion – Matthew 4:18-25
- Does a call to follow Jesus always require a preparedness to leave our family, our business etc? Why does Jesus not require this of the vast majority of Christians?
- How can there be a present and a future aspect to the Kingdom of Heaven? Will believers be present in the future Kingdom when Jesus comes to reign on earth?
- Why does the preaching of the Gospel in current times often leave out the fact that Jesus will return and set up his kingdom on earth? Should this be something we need to address as the world gets closer to Jesus’ return?
- Different denominations stress either the need for personal conversion or the need to address the social injustices and physical needs of the people they are targeting. Why should both be equally important?
