Sermon Notes

This week Pastor Max preaches a sermon entitled The Danger of Being Divided focussing on 1 Corinthians 10:14-22.

1 Corinthians 10:14-22
ICEBREAKER: What is the biggest misconception people tend to have about you?
1. What do you think best describes the true nature of idolatry?
2. In ancient times people used to worship a physical idol – what are some modern examples of idols?
3. According to Jesus in Matthew 6:24, is it possible to serve God and other idols in our lives? How does this tie in with James 4:1-4?
4. Read Galatians 5:19-21. What kinds of other sins are found in the same list as “rivalries, dissensions, divisions.” How does this indicate how serious disunity is in God’s eyes?
5. List three attitudes or behaviours that might cause division in a church. What are the godly opposites of those things? What is the biblical remedy to correct those things?
6. What steps do you need to take to avoid causing division among the people in your own life?  How can you better practice the godly virtues you listed above?
7. Read 1 Kings 18:21. What bearing does Elijah’s question to Israel have on your own life?
8. What did you find helpful or challenging about the message?

Believers are never told to become one; we already are one and are expected to act like it.” – Joni Tada
