Sermon Notes

John 3:16–18 NIV
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

Luke 19:9–10 NIV
9 Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.

Matthew 28:18–20 NIV
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 22:37–40 NIV
37 Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”


Discussion Igniters

(1)  What are some things you are devoted to? (Football teams, games, shows, politics, careers, etc?) 

(2)  Read Acts 4:31–35. How can accepting the truth about Jesus (who he is, what he thinks about you, what he has done for you) lead to devoting yourself to him? 

(3)  What excites you about the things you’ve accepted about Jesus and his call for your life? 

(4)  What does it mean to accept the mission Jesus gives us in Matthew 28:18–20

(5)  What do you need to accept or change to grow as a follower of Jesus?
