Growing Together into Christ

Growing Together into Christ

Ephesians 4:11-16

Preparing your heart for the sermon:

  • What picture does Paul give for the church in this passage?  What parts of the body are identified?
  • How many times does the text speak of the body growing or being built up?  Why would God mention it so often?
  • What does growth in the church look like?  What is it contrasted with?

Other passages to consider: Matt 16:13-18; John 15:1-17; Acts 20:28-32; 1 Cor 12:12-13:7; Eph 2:11-22; 3:20-4:16; Col 1:15-20; 1 Pet 4:7-11

Digging Deeper:

  • How does God intend the church to grow?
  • How does the text emphasize corporate growth rather than just individual?  What does this say about the importance of involvement in the life of the church?
  • What does it mean to grow up into Christ?
  • Does your current commitment to the church match God’s intention?  How can you be more connected to the body?

By Pastor Jathan

Sermon – Time to Grow Up – 1 Corinthians 3:1-4

Preparing your heart for the sermon:

  • Why do we not feed babies steak?  Why is it inappropriate for adults to live on baby formula?
  • Does Christian growth happen automatically over the passage of time?  Why or why not?
  • What does Christian growth look like?  What things get mistaken for growth?

Other passages to consider – Ps 51; Rom 8:1-9; Gal 5:16-26; Eph 4:11-16; Col 1:28; 2:6-7; Titus 2:11-13; 3:3-9; Heb 5:11-6:1a; Jam 1:19-22; 1 Pet 1:23-2:3

Digging Deeper:

  • Am I growing in spiritual maturity?  How can I tell?
  • What is the Holy Spirit’s role in our Christian growth?  What is our role?
  • What in my life is hindering my Christian growth?
  • How is God glorified when His people grow?
