Sermon Notes

This week Pastor Deric sets our vision for the year 2020 with a message titled “20/20 Vision”

Questions:

ICEBREAKER: What are you planning to practice this year to make it your best year ever spiritually?

1. The Great Commission of Matthew 28:18-20 is key to understanding City Centre’s reason for existing. Who [Matthew 3:16-17] is commissioning who [Matthew 10:2]? What is the mission [Acts 1:8]? How is it to be done [Matthew 13:36-43]? What is the promise [Matthew 1:21-23] and hope [Revelation 22:1-5]?

2. Christianity is designed to be a relationship with God, not just a religion. Spending time with God fosters that relationship. What are your daily practices that prioritize alone time with God? Consider Psalm 5:3; Psalm 42:1-2; Luke 5:16; and Acts 17:11 in your thoughts.

3. What is the purpose of weekly corporate worship, and why is it so important? Include Psalm 95:1-7; Acts 13:1-2; and Revelation 5:6-14 in your response.

4. Following Christ is more than a solitary pursuit. We are created for community. What are the benefits of walking with Jesus alongside others [cf. Acts 2:42-47; Colossians 3:12-17; and Hebrews 10:24-25]?

5. Christians are saved to serve, for that was the example of our Lord [cf. Mark 10:45; Luke 22:27]. How does serving others benefit us as well as the entire body of Christ [cf. Galatians 5:13-14; Ephesians 4:11-16; and 1 Peter 4:10]?

6. Throughout church history, the Great Commission has too often collapsed into the Great Omission. Why is mission so dear to our Heavenly Father’s heart, and what are we able to do to accomplish it together? Reflect on Romans 16:25-27; Galatians 4:4-5; and 1 John 4:9-10 for further insights.

7. What did you find helpful or challenging about this Sunday’s message?

“All God’s giants have been weak men who did great things for God because they reckoned on God being with them.” (Hudson Taylor
