Discussion Questions for Sermon Series Letters to the Church Part 2 - Sacred


God’s Church started as a radical, spiritually intimate gathering of believers that ultimately changed history. Yet millions today are content to be mere observers at church.  But God is waking up His people—people who will risk anything and sacrifice everything to be the dynamic, world-changing Church of the Bible. In this series we are going to be asking, “What does God want for His Church?”


God is sacred.  We are so used to casual and common things in our life and our world today, and we quickly forget that God is different.  Our culture teaches us to push back on everything and to question authority. Our relationship with God is different.


  1. Read about Moses striking the rock - Numbers 20, and King Saul’s sacrifice 1 Samuel 13.  What is striking about these situations? Why? What do they show you about God?

  2. There is no greater honor than to be part of God’s Church.  How does it make you feel that we can commune intimately with Creator of the universe and He desires us?  Do you ever take it for granted or treat it as common? If so why and what can you do to try and not let that happen?

  3. The Church is the living temple of God and we are part of a heavenly community.  We are the living temple of God, each one of us a “block” in the building, and essential for the Church to function.  How might we all change if we were to treat our brothers and sisters in Christs as “blocks” in a holy temple? How might the Church change if we were to always build up the church leadership?

  4. Today in social media we often lift ourselves up.  Are there days that you need to take your eyes off yourself and regain a heavenly perspective?  When? How can you change?

  5. When we take our eyes off ourselves we realize that true joy comes from the opposite.  Share an example from your own life.

  6. Gathering with the Church leads us to holy ground and is God’s beautiful plan.  This plan did not include energetic music, great videos, attractive leaders, and elaborate lighting.  Do you need the extra stuff?

  7. Are you excited about heaven?  What excites you the most?

  8. Read Isaiah 6:2.  We are currently attached to the One who shines brighter than the sun?  High angels cover themselves with their wings in His presence. How does this make you feel?
