    Judgement Seat Motivations for Global Ministry
    This week we have a special guest speaker for our 35th Anniversary service, Dr. Bruce Snavely. He will be preaching from 2 Corinthians 5:10-21 entitled "Judgment Seat Motivations for Global Ministry."

    Questions:

    2 Corinthians 5:10-21
    Ice Breaker: Truth be told, there are likely many different things that motivate us to action. Some are positive and others may actually be negative.
     
    What are some of the factors that motivate you to daily action, and why do you think you are so affected by them?
     
    1. As a Christian, how does the realization that we will all stand before the judgement seat of God impact your life? (v.10; also read Psalms 62:12; Acts 10:42; Rom. 14:10-12)
     
    2. How does Paul understand the "fear of the Lord”? What impact does his understanding have on his ministry? (v.11; also read Job 31:23; Acts 9:31; Heb. 10:31)
     
    3. What is the primary motivator in Paul’s ministry and how has this same motivator impacted your life and ministry? (vv.12-15)
     
    4. How does the realization that we are a "new creation” change things for Paul and for us? (vv. 16-19; also read John 3:3; Rom. 6:4; Eph. 2:14-16; 4:20-24)
     
    5. What is the role of an “ambassador"? (v. 20)
     
    6. In light of this passage, what is God’s plan and purpose for you as a disciple? (vv. 20-21; also read Eph. 6:18b-20)
     
    “God always has a plan, and he can use anybody to carry it out.”- Kevin DeYoung
