Topic: Sunday Morning Teaching Passage: Jude 1:5–1:8

What danger awaits us if we don't remember the message of the gospel? Join us this Sunday at CrossWinds Church in Spencer as we consider the answer from Jude 5–8.

Sermon Discussion Questions

  1. Share a story of forgetting something important and the consequences of doing so. Why do you think the Bible so often calls us to “remember” things?
  2. What is one highlight from the sermon and one question that you had after hearing the sermon?
  3. Read Jude 3–5. Why does Jude call on the church to “remember”? In the context of Jude 3–4, what are the consequences of forgetting what the teachings of the Bible?
  4. Read Jude 5; 1 Corinthians 10:1–13. Have you ever considered the ways that Jesus is involved in the Old Testament? What do these passages teach us about Jesus?
  5. Read Exodus 15:1–18; Luke 9:30–31; Exodus 19:5–6; 1 Peter 2:9–10. In the sermon, Pastor Jordan suggests that there are a number of parallels between the Exodus in the Old Testament and the gospel. What are some of the ways that the salvation of the exodus points toward the greater salvation in the gospel?
  6. Read Numbers 14:1–12. In what ways are the people of Israel guilty of unbelief against God? What are some ways that we are tempted toward the same unbelief today?
  7. Read Genesis 6:1–4; Jude 6. What do you make of this passage? Why is the word “authority” in Jude 6 crucial for understanding Jude’s point?
  8. Read Galatians 2:20. What is the danger of rejecting the authority of Jesus for the sake of your own desires? What does Jesus call us to do with competing desires? What are some desires that compete with Jesus for your affection?
  9. Read Jude 4, 7. What is the danger of being ruled by pleasure rather than Jesus? The word “sensuality” (verse 4) was commonly used to refer to a “lifestyle of excess.” What are some ways that we see a “lifestyle of excess” today? How do you see that temptation in your own life?
  10. This Time Tomorrow: How does this passage transform your thoughts, actions, or interactions at this time tomorrow
