Below is a brief review of our meeting on Sunday, followed by projection from the message, and a few discussion questions for Community Group or personal study this week.

Matthew opened the meeting with a responsive reading from Psalm 147.

Quinton Cools led us in singing As Long as You are Glorified, and Haven’t You Been Good.

Doug Roberts shared a word of prophecy from Psalm 33.

We prayed a prayer of confession and sang Jesus Son of God and Grace Unmeasured.

Matthew lead us in giving our tithes and offerings by reading Matthew 6:28-33. He prayed for needs in our church family, the Zika outbreak in Central America, the Iowa caucuses, and ministries in our local community.

After the prayer, Matthew preached the next message in our current series, United: The letter to the Ephesians. The message was titled “The End of All Things”. To listen to the message again, please visit our iTunes podcast page here.

After the message, we sang All I Have is Christ and Chris led us in sharing communion.

Chris closed our time together with a benediction.

Projection from the message:

It was not because you were more in number than any other people that the LORD set his love on you and chose you, for you were the fewest of the peoples, but it is because the LORD loves you and is keeping the oath that he swore to your fathers, that the LORD has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. – Deuteronomy 7:7-8

And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, ‘You shall eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die. – Genesis 2:16-17

Discussion Questions:

1. Matthew taught that history is not cyclical. Rather, to be united with Christ by faith is to be caught up in the great end of all things. What does this mean? What impact does such a thesis have on our lives?

2. The law says, “You sin, you die,” whereas the gospel says, “You sin, Christ dies.” The payment that God demands from us, He paid for us. What practical applications can we draw from this? How are we to avoid despising the cost of our ransom?

3. How does unity with Christ provide the grace of revelation? How can we best pray for our unsaved loved ones with this in mind?

4. God’s will is not a mystery to be discovered. Rather, it is a mission to be embraced. What is the significance of this? How should this mindset affect our daily lives?
