  1. What’s the best thing that’s happened to you since last Christmas?
  2. What was your best Christmas ever? Why?
  1. Read Deuteronomy 24:1-4 and Matthew 5:31-32. What had the people heard? Had they been taught wrongly? Does He contradict what they had heard?
  2. Read Matthew 19:3-9. How does Jesus’ teaching on divorce stand in contrast to the way people view marriage and divorce today? What popular non-biblical sources serve as an authority in our culture to affirm divorce?
  3. If divorce has impacted your life directly, in what way are Jesus’ words painful to hear? How are His words comforting?
  4. If you are married, in what way(s) can you foster and protect unity with your spouse? If you are unmarried and might be married one day, how can you help foster and protect unity with a future spouse?
  5. Rob taught that every Christian must embrace three identities: “saint,” “sinner” and “victim.” As it concerns the area of lust, adultery, and divorce, which of these identities is most difficult for you embrace? Explain.
  6. In what way(s) do you think the Lord will meet you with his fierce and jealous love when you embrace this identity?

Sermon Title: Holiness is Wholeness

Date: November 18, 2018

  1. What are you looking forward to most about this Thanksgiving? What are you looking forward to least?
  2. Can you think of a story in Scripture that would prove whether or not it is always a sin to be angry?
  3. If murder was the standard for holiness how much would you feel your need for a savior? How does the broadening of this standard of holiness to the category of anger change your felt need for a savior?
  4. Jesus specifically links anger to sinful speech. How has your anger resulted in sinful speech? Tell us about specific forms of speech your anger has taken.
  5. In the sermon, Craig said, “You cannot worship the King publically if you are not loving people privately.” Who are you struggling to love privately? How does this impact your public worship?
  6. What relationship(s) of yours need reconciliation?
  7. What specific help do you need from the Lord to pursue reconciliation with this person or people (courage, forgiveness, patience, opportunity)? Let's pray for these things now!
  8. What about God or the gospel encourages you in the midst of your answers above?
