Sermon Response August 12, 2018

The Text:Matthew 5:1-10

Discuss:

  1. What do you think is Jesus’ main objective for giving the beatitudes?

  2. How do you think those listening that day would have received such “negative” sounding message?

  3. Do you agree or disagree with me that the beatitudes are a step by step “instruction” guide for living like Jesus? Explain.

Respond:

  1. Read each of the eight beatitudes one at a time and let a few people from your group discuss how that verse applies to their life.

  2. Have time for quiet reflection on your life and where you are in your spiritual journey. Try and apply the teachings of Jesus to your life and then share with the group what you need to do this week to take one step forward.

Prayer

God, may we learn from you word and apply it to our life!
