Discussion Questions

Sunday, April 11
Stop Agreeing with Jesus - Part 1
Discussion Questions - Matthew 5:21-26

  • What are some examples in our culture where you see people not doing what they say they believe?
  • Where do you see Christians doing the same thing?
  • What are the consequences (at home, at church, in the community) of Christians not living out what they say they believe?
  • Read Matthew 7:24-27 and Matthew 7:21-23. How does Jesus view someone who claims to be a Christian yet doesn’t do what He said?
  • Discuss the different reasons why discrepancies exist between what Christians say they believe and how Christians live.
  • When are we to seek reconciliation with someone? What if we don’t think we did anything wrong and yet they are still mad at us? What instructions did Jesus give in this area?
  • What is significant about Jesus’ words “leave your gift at the altar?” What does this reveal about what He finds more important?
  • What is revealed about God’s heart in the following passages: Micah 6:6-8, Psalm 51:16-17, 1 Samuel 15:22. How do these passages connect with Jesus’ teachings from today’s passages?
  • What is the possible connection between a Christian’s perpetually feeling defeated and his/her unwillingness to learn and/or obey the teachings of Jesus?
  • Based on Jesus’ teachings from today’s passages, what do you need to do in order to obey it? What are some possible obstacles you may face in trying to obey this passage?
