Sermon Notes

Questionable (2) - Questions




A server at Anita’s mom’s 80th birthday party asked us a unique “Would Your Rather?” So … would YOU rather wear wet socks all the time (even to bed - you won’t get athlete’s foot or gangrene or anything like that) for the rest of your life OR have a raptor (eagle, hawk, osprey, etc) attack you from out of the blue once a day for the rest of your life? And why?

What are the pros and cons for the church concerning the signs?

2 Samuel 6:12-16

Now King David was told, “The Lord has blessed the household of Obed-Edom and everything he has, because of the ark of God.” So David went to bring up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with rejoicing. When those who were carrying the ark of the Lord had taken six steps, he sacrificed a bull and a fattened calf. Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing before the Lord with all his might, while he and all Israel were bringing up the ark of the Lord with shouts and the sound of trumpets.

As the ark of the Lord was entering the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul watched from a window. And when she saw King David leaping and dancing before the Lord, she despised him in her heart.

2 Samuel 6:20-23

When David returned home to bless his household, Michal daughter of Saul came out to meet him and said, “How the king of Israel has distinguished himself today, going around half-naked in full view of the slave girls of his servants as any vulgar fellow would!”

David said to Michal, “It was before the Lord, who chose me rather than your father or anyone from his house when he appointed me ruler over the Lord’s people Israel—I will celebrate before the Lord. I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes. But by these slave girls you spoke of, I will be held in honor.”

And Michal daughter of Saul had no children to the day of her death.

Why didn’t King David really care what Michal thought of him? Should we care about what others think of us?

React to this thought:

When you don’t care about what others think of you - because only ONE opinion matters - you can really care for others.

Karl mentioned three ways to Live a Questionable Life:

  • Live for an audience of ONE knowing everyone is watching

  • Don’t divide life up between the sacred and secular (like worship and work)

  • Pray your way through your day saying, “Jesus, what would you have me BE, DO or SAY right now?”

What does each point mean and what is the most challenging one for you right now? What will you do about it?

Whose motto resonates with you better? Carson Wentz’s or John Calvin’s? And why?

Now dividing up men with men and women with women, answer these connection questions:

  1. What joy or victory are you experiencing?

  2. What struggle or sin are you dealing with?

  3. What specific prompting from God do you need to obey?

  4. How can we pray for you?
