Worship Guide for November 20

November 18, 2022


Prepare for Sunday morning worship by using the guide below. 

Matthew 13: 44-46

44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

Watch the Sermon
livestreamupdatedSummary: We are on our second sermon on the nature of discipleship. Last week, Daniel spoke on the outward aspect of being a disciple: the doing of discipleship. Today I will speak on the heart or, more specifically, the role of affections in discipleship and the love for discipleship. Our passage contains a pair of Jesus' parables to teach his disciples about the incredible value of the kingdom of God. His point is that once its value is discovered, discipleship can be embraced with a heart of joy, love, and gratitude even in the face of great costs and conflict. In other words, in discovering the value of the kingdom, discipleship, in spite of the costs, is a joy to pursue.

Review and Apply

How did you discover the value of the kingdom?

What metaphors would you use to explain the value of the kingdom in your life?  

What do we learn about one man discovering the value of the kingdom by finding it by surprise? What about the other man by searching for it? 

In what ways do you feel joy over giving all for this kingdom?

What costs have you incurred to gain the kingdom?
