November 25: The Value of the Kingdom (Matthew 13:44)
Matthew 13:44 "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field."
This week we will be rejoicing over all that God has done in the first 6 months of Christ Church Rolesville. Pastor Daniel Savage from Christ Church Rolesville will be here with us. Both he and Tom Mercer will preach together on this Kingdom parable. Tom will focus on the value of the kingdom. He will speak about the forgiveness, reconciliation, and the eternal and unshakable nature of the kingdom. Daniel will focus on our response to this great value. You can see in the parable that the man who found this great treasure went in his joy and sold all he had to buy it. How can we respond in the same way? We want to rejoice in the fact that God has given us an opportunity to show the worth of the kingdom through this church planting effort.
Describe the kingdom of God in your terms.
How did God reveal this kingdom to you (preaching, reading, words of a friend)?
In what ways would you describe the Kingdom of God as valuable? What makes it worth selling all things to gain?
How is this kingdom displayed as valuable in your life?
What have you 'sold' to gain this kingdom?
What current 'treasures' in your life are distracting you from living in light of the kingdom?
