The Light of Salvation Has Come! – John 1:5-13

Preparing your heart for the sermon:

  • What does light do to darkness?  Why is light so needed in order to live?
  • Why did most people not welcome the visit from their Creator?
  • Why do some receive Jesus instead of rejecting him like the rest?

Other passages to consider: Gen 1:1-5; Ps 27:1; Isa 9:1-7; 42:1-7; Matt 4:12-17; Luke 1:76-79; 2:29-32; Jn 1:1-13; 3:1-21; 8:12; 9:5; 11:9-10; 12:35-36, 44-50; Acts 26:17-18; 2 Cor 4:1-6; Eph 5:6-16; 1 Pet 2:9; 1 Jn 1:5-10

Digging Deeper:

  • How does this passage describe the nearness of Christ’s incarnation?  How does this display God’s grace?
  • What does it look like to receive Jesus?  What happens to those who do that?
  • What are the blessings of being a child of God?
  • Why do you follow Christ?  How should you respond to this truth?

The Life-giving Word- John 1:1-5

Preparing your heart for the sermon:

  • What passage of Scripture does vv1-5 remind you of?  Why would John write this way?
  • What do these verses tell you about the attributes of Jesus?
  • Why does John call Jesus the Word?  What does this title tell us about Jesus?

Other passages to consider: Gen 1; Ps 33:6; 107:20; Prov 8:22-31; Isa 55:10-11; Jer 1:4; Mic 5:2; Jn 1:1-18; 5:26; 8:12; 9:5; 11:25; 14:6; 17:3-5,20-24; 20:28-31; Col 1:15-20; Heb 1:1-4; 1 Jn 1-10

Digging Deeper:

  • How is Jesus uniquely qualified to make God known?
  • How can Jesus be both God and with God?
  • What is the relationship between creation and salvation?
  • Throughout his Gospel, what does John use the terms life and light to describe?
 

 

The Gathering of the Local Church

August 10, 2018
By Pastor Jathan

Sermon – The Gathering of the Local Church – 1 Peter 2:4-8

Preparing your heart for the sermon:

  • Why do we gather as a local church?
  • What image does Peter give for the church?  What do we learn about the church from this picture?
  • How is Christ’s relationship to the church described?

Other passages to consider: Ex 19:3-6; Ps 96; 118:22-24; Isa 8:11-15; 28:14-16; 43:1-7; Matt 16:13-20; 21:42-46; Acts 4:8-12; 1 Cor 3:16-17; 14:24-25; Eph 2:13-22.

Digging Deeper:

  • What does it mean to worship God?  How can we do this?
  • In what ways does gathering corporately help us worship God and bring glory to him?
  • Should church services be geared toward unbelievers?  If not, how could God still use the gathering to bring salvation to the lost?
  • What should people learn about God from attending a gathering of AGC?
