Study Questions

  1. How did the sermon help you?
  2. Read 1 Corinthian 1:18-19.  Does the cross of Christ seem foolish to you?  How is the cross the power of God?
  3. Read Luke 9:23-25.  Do you view the cross as strictly a tool that God has used to pay for your salvation or do you also view it as a tool that God wants to use in your life to transform you into His image?  How do you practically pick up your cross daily, what does that look like?
  4. Read 1 Corinthians 1:20-25.  Why was the cross a stumbling block to the Jews?  In what way was their pursuit of miracles a conflict with the purpose of the cross?
  5. Why was the cross foolishness to the Greeks?  Read Isaiah 29:13-14.
  6. Read 1 Corinthians 1:26-31.  Why did the Apostle Paul remind the Corinthian believers that before Christ most of them were not wise, influential, or powerful?
  7. How does the cross change our identity and value?  Why should we boast solely in Lord and in the cross?
  8. Read Galatians 2:20.  Here the Apostle Paul says that He has been crucified.  Why?  Do you consider yourself as having been crucified?


  1. Attend one service and serve at another. Needs are plenty.
  2. We need people to serve at children’s ministry, not just in the classroom, but also in check in and check out, rooms organization, worship, teaching, and assisting teachers.
  3. We need someone willing to drive the church van Sundays to bring people to church. Class B is required (Church would help you get it)
