How Disciples are to Treat Others – Matthew 7:12

Sermon Notes:

1)       

2)       

3)       

4)       

Digging Deeper:

  • How Is Jesus’s standard more demanding than other ancient versions that stated this command in the negative – “Do not do to your neighbor what is hateful to you.”?
  • How is this command related to “Loving the Lord with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength?”
  • What hope do we have of obeying this command?
  • How do you like to be treated?  What will it look like for you to treat those around you like that?

Other Passages to Consider:

Deut 6:4-5; Mic 6:8; Matt 5:13-17; 22:24-40; Jn 13:34-35; Rom 13:8-10; 2 Cor 9:8; Gal 5:13-14; Jam 2:8; 1 Pet 1:22.

Sermon – Seeking the Good of Others to the Glory of God - 1 Corinthians 10:23-11:1

Preparing my heart for the sermon:

  • Why does Paul quote Psalm 24:1 as support for eating meat?
  • How do Paul’s instructions on when not to eat meat illustrate seeking the good of others?
  • How did Jesus seek the good of others to the glory of God?

Other passages to consider – Ps 24:1-2; Isa 53:3-12; Mark 10:45; Rom 14:13-15:7; 1 Cor 6:12-13; 8:1-13; 9:19-23; 13:4-5; 2 Cor 8:9; Gal 5:13-14; Phil 2:3-11; 1 Tim 4:1-5

Digging Deeper:

  • In what ways can I regularly seek the good of others and not my own?
  • How is God glorified by me seeking the good of others?
  • How can I find the ability to daily die to self and serve others?
  • Who are some Christ-like examples around me that I could pattern my life after?

Sermon – Laying Aside My Rights for the Good of Others - 1 Corinthians 9:1-23

Preparing my heart for the sermon:

  • What right is Paul explaining that he has?
  • Why did Paul not exercise this right?
  • Why does Paul discuss this here?  How does this relate to the context in the letter?

Other passages to consider – Matt 20:20-28; Luke 10:1-12; John 13:1-15; Eph 4:1-3; Phil 2:1-11; 2 Cor 4:1-15; 1 Tim 5:17-20; 1 Pet 5:5-7.

Digging Deeper:

  • Why do we often feel like we must demand our rights?  What will help us be willing to let go of them?
  • How did Jesus model laying aside rights for the good of others?
  • What does it look like to become all things to all people (v22) for the sake of the gospel?
  • What “rights” could I currently set aside to help bring the gospel to others?
