More Than a Building (Part 2)

July 16, 2017 Speaker: Damian Mericka Series: The Church: Her Authority & Mission

Topic: More Than a Building (Part 2) Passage: John 4:16–4:26, Jeremiah 7:1–7:8, Ezekiel 9:1–9:11, Ezekiel 10:1–10:7, Ezekiel 18:22, Ezekiel 11:14–11:25

Going Deeper Questions


(a) Have you ever felt like your faith is just one of many?

(b) If you were in Jesus' shoes sharing your faith, addressing a moral issue- how would you respond if the other person draws a distinction between their faith and yours?

(c) Are both on an equal footing with God?

(Read the passage carefully to note Jesus' response)


Pastor Damian has often spoken on how we can fall in the danger of putting an expectation on God that He never committed to.

(a) Have you ever felt like the people in this text who were comfortable in their sin because they believed God would always be there?

(b) How does sin affect our relationship with God?

(c) What if God evaluated our love for Him based on how we deal with our personal sin which seeks to separate us and God?

(d)Does your own Spiritual Warefare boast of a loving pursuit of God? if not, what are you doing about it?


We can all recall a time when we ended up in trouble and it seemed like the punishment was too severe. Yet, we had to endure because in the end we were wrong.

(a) Would anyone want to share a similar story?

(b) In our text why does God send the Man dressed in linen out to mark some?

(c) Why are some marked and others are not?


(a) What is meant as a blessing to one is a curse to another. How is the Gospel a blessing to some... and a curse to others?

What is the NEXT step?

Read Chapter 5 of I Am A Church Member and answer the questions at the end, then connect with someone and discuss your answers.
