For all of our sermon questions, we like to ask three main questions.

  1. What is God saying to you?
  2. What does the Bible say?
  3. What will you do?

We will ask some of the same questions each week as well as asking several different questions each week. We ask questions in this way because we believe God is doing something in the heart of the person that is asking the question. When we slow down long enough to ask the question “What is God saying to me?” we give ourselves the time and energy to pay attention to what He might be saying. The Bible questions are there to help us ensure we are hearing correctly from God. God’s word will always be consistent with His voice in our heart and mind. The final questions on “What will you do?” are designed to prompt you to search your heart on what God is saying and respond to it.

What is God saying to you?

  1. Considering the message today, what do you think God is saying to you?
  2. What theme or themes can you identify in Acts 10?
  3. Have you ever had a vision from God? Anything you can share? How did you obey God in it?
  4. Who are the people in your life you feel God telling you reach? Have you tried reaching them? Why or why not?

 

What does the Bible say? Read Acts 10
