Sermon Questions

Jesus is Better

Richard White, Pastor

"A Better Kingdom" - Hebrews 12:25-29

  1. What does God say when he speaks?  (Heb 1;1; 12:25). 
  2. What are ways that we refuse to listen to Him who is speaking, vs 25?  What were ways Israel refused to listen to God – (Ex 32:7-10; Ex 16:1-8; 17:1-7, and others that come to mind)?
  3. God will bring one final shaking of all things, vs 26. Read Haggai 2:6-9, 21-23. How do these verses in Haggai relate to the final shaking of heaven and earth by God?
  4. Can you give an example of a time when your world was being shaken?  Can you see how being part of a kingdom that cannot be shaken sustained you when going through your earthly shaking?
  5. What kingdom(s) of this world are you giving, or tempted to give allegiance to for security, identity, life?  What is it that is shakable with regard to those earthly kingdoms?
  6. What do you think this “unshakable kingdom” is?  How does receiving it make you an unshakable person, in what way are you unshakable?
  7. What do you think are God’s purposes in the lesser shakings of this world? (consider Rev 9:20-21; 16:8-11).
  8. Why should thanksgiving, reverence and awe be a natural response to receiving an unshakable kingdom? Is it in your life, why or why not? What are some practical ways we can cultivate a thankful life before God?
  9. How is the reality of God as a consuming fire an good thing for those in Christ, but not for those outside of Him? (Deut 4:23-24; Malachi 3:2-4; 4:13; Matt 3:11-12). Where have you experienced the refining fire of God?  What was the result?
  10. Spend time in worship of God, standing in awe and giving thanks for who he is, what he has done in making you part of an unshakable kingdom.
