SERMON: "Radical Response Required" ~ Matthew 13:44-52
“What is a right response to the kingdom of heaven?”
1. What is the Kingdom of Heaven?
“The incomparable value of the Kingdom demands a radical response.”

1. Discuss with the group a time when you responded either rightly or wrongly in a given situation. What were the impacts or consequence of either response, and what lesson was learned from this experience?
2. What are some of you most precious possessions? What efforts have you made to safeguard and protect them? How is this question answered if you look at strictly a spiritual application? What spiritual safeguards are in place for you?
3. Read Philippians 3:7-10 and hare observations on how this text applies what we learn about the kingdom of heaven in our sermon.
4. Read the following selection of biblical texts that describe some aspect or characteristic of the Kingdom of heaven. Discuss the significance of each and how this impacts our life of faith. Matthew 3:2. 5:3, 6:33, 13:36-38, 43; Luke 6:20, 17:21, 18:16, 29-30; Romans 14:17; Colossians 1:13; 1 Thessalonians 2:12; Revelation 1:9.
5. Review the following selection of biblical texts that concern the topic of “entering” the kingdom. What are some general truths, and how do they impact our life of faith? Matthew 7:21, 18:1-4; Luke 9:62; John 3:3; Acts 14:21-22.
6. How have you responded to the invitation of the Kingdom of heaven? Discuss your response to and membership in the Kingdom of heaven and how this ‘treasure’ is cared for in your own life.
