GETTING READY FOR SUNDAY
To help you get ready for Sunday worship together, we’ve included some information about our upcoming service including; Scripture passages, discussion questions, and the music you’ll hear this week.
We continue on in our new Sermon Series, ‘When Grace Comes To Town’. This is a study in Matthew 5-7. This week we are looking at Matthew 5:8.
Matthew 5:8 New International Version (NIV)
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
Read the whole passage at Bible Gateway here.
Sermon Questions this Sunday:
While you prepare for Sunday, here are some questions to consider
Sermon Series Questions: Matthew 5:8
“Blessed are the Pure in Heart”
1. Have you ever been homesick? If you’re able, tell of that experience.
2. Do you know of any stories or places in the Bible that talk about being ‘pure in heart’? Search them out and collect a fuller picture of ‘pure in heart’.
3. Do you know of any stories or places in the Bible where someone wanted to see God? Search for those stories and feel the longing of those hearts.
4. How would you explain being “pure in heart” and “seeing God” to your neighbour who doesn’t now believe. Use words that would make sense to her or him, not churchy words.
5. Is there a possibility that your own heart has longed for these two things but gone looking for that kind of intimacy in some wrong places? If you’re courageous enough, explain some of the ‘dead ends’ you’ve discovered.
