"From Now On" Pastor Roger Thompson / 2 Corinthians 5:11-6:13

on February 11, 2020



  1. Would you rather have a job interview with a board of 5 people or give a 15-minute public speech in front of 1,000 people? Why?
  2. Would you rather receive a $1,000 Visa gift card you had to spend in the Mall of America within one day or the keys to a brand-new Jeep to use on a 3-day trip in the mountains of Colorado? Why?
  3. What are some of the personality differences that were revealed when your group answered the questions? What does it say about you? What does it say about your group and why you still choose to meet together?

Application: God makes his appeal through us as ambassadors for Christ.

  1. Read 2 Corinthians 5:11-21. Verse 15 reads, “that those who live may not live for themselves, but for him.” How is this different from someone who works for an organization or someone who plays for a team sport?
  2. What are some things that tangibly changed in your life as a result of living for Christ?
  3. Are there any examples of things you have done in the workplace that demonstrate this? How have you used them as a witnessing tool?
  4. Are there parts of your life where you feel convicted about living for yourself?

Application: We commend ourselves to remove any obstacle that prevents someone from seeing Christ.

  1. Read 2 Corinthians 6:1-13. When you read the list of challenges in verses 4 and 5 is there anything that you can identify with? Why is that?
  2. Should an American Christian be expected to experience any of those in their lifetime?
  3. Verse 10 reads, “as poor, yet making many rich.” What does he mean by that?
  4. How do we display a sense of being poor today as Christians in the U.S.?
  5. How does the gospel message that we share make many rich? What are they rich in and how is this tangibly displayed? How do you communicate this expected change to someone considering faith in Christ?
