Sunday’s message will come from Luke 6:46-49. After reading it a couple of times, answer the reflection questions I’ve included below.
So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say? 47 I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it. 48 It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built. 49 But anyone who hears and doesn’t obey is like a person who builds a house right on the ground, without a foundation. When the floods sweep down against that house, it will collapse into a heap of ruins.
What does it mean for Jesus to be the “Lord” of your life?
What, according to Jesus, proves He is truly the Lord of a person’s life?
What is the fundamental difference between the two builders in this story?
What results in the lives of these two builders?
So, here’s the crux of my message on Sunday – Where Jesus is truly Lord, obedience will follow.
