Sermon Series Resources for Leaders


GETTING STARTED

Read each statement. If the statement reflects something you knew before write a “K.” If the statement reflects something you learned, write a “L.” If the statement reflects something that deepened what you already knew, write a “D.” If the statement reflects something you want to learn more about, write a “W.”

Key:
K = KNEW
L = LEARNED
D = DEEPENED
W = WANT

_____  1. God made more than 1 covenant with His people.  

:: Genesis 2:15-17; 9:12-16; 17; Exodus 19:3-22; 2 Samuel 7:5-16

_____  2. The New Testament Greek word that has been translated “Church” is best understood as an assembly of people rather than a building.

_____  3. The Jewish tradition of Passover was just as much about Jesus rescuing us from sin as it was the rescue of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt.

:: Luke 22:16-20

_____  4. It was impossible for the Israelites to do all that was required from the Old Covenant.

:: Romans 8:1-8


CONVERSATION

  1. Romans 8:1-8 explains the relationship of the Old Covenant to the New Covenant. Read this passage. How is living by the Spirit different from living by the Law?

    Now read Matthew 5:21-22. How does Jesus' definition of murder differ from the Old Testament commandment (Exodus 20:13)? 

  2.  Do you catch yourself in Old Covenant thinking and entertaining thoughts like, “If I do something for God, He will do something for me.”? 

    What is a New Covenant statement or thought that you can use to replace Old Covenant habits of thinking?

    Examples:

    Compare Deuteronomy 21:18-21 to Luke 11:11-13.

    Compare Exodus 20:1-17 and Matthew 5:1-12.
