Sermon, Sunday July 5, 2015

I’m lousy at waiting.  I inch forward at red lights to help the lights in the other direction turn from green to yellow.  I roll through stop signs, I’m the master at scoping out the shortest line at Costco.  The way I figure it, a perfect world would be a world without waiting.  I should get what I want when I want it, and not a second later.  Turns out God thinks differently. “The Kingdom of Heaven is like yeast”, and not the fast-acting yeast either!  Slow moving, slow acting, tortoise yeast!  God knows there’s something divine in the waiting.

Sermon, Sunday July 5, 2015 – Andrew Allison Matthew 13:33

Sermon Study Questions:

Matthew 13:33

  1. Describe a time in your life when you had to wait for something you wanted very much.
  2. What do you know about yeast? How does it work? What effect does it have? Share you knowledge with your group.
  3. What does it mean for yeast to be a picture of God’s Kingdom?  God could have said the Kingdom is like gunpowder or a roller coaster ride but, instead, we’re told it’s more like yeast. Explain.
  4. What’s the deal with the ‘large amount of flour’? What might God be saying by including that detail?
  5. Where is God asking you to wait in your life right now? Pray together over those ‘hard to wait’ issues you each face.
