Expecting the Unexpected November 30, 2014. Sermon: “Expecting the Unexpected” by Reverend Tim Avazian. Scripture: Matthew 24:36-44

Discussion Questions:

  1. As a child, what celebrations were you most excited about?  Was it a birthday?  Celebrating Christmas?  Going on a break from school or summer vacation?
  2. What are some unexpected events that happen in our lives?  How do you prepare for such unexpected events?
  3. Read Matthew 24:36-44.  What observations do you see in this passage?  How does it fit within chapters 24 and 25 of Matthew?  What is Matthew writing about?
  4. In what ways is the Flood, during the days of Noah, like the Second Coming or second Advent of Christ?
  5. How have you been “lulled” into complacency in regard to Christ’s return? What keeps you from being prepared?
  6. What does it mean practically, to be ready for Jesus’ return if we do not know when He will come?
  7. How are you personally “advancing the kingdom of God” with your gifts and talents for the second Advent of Christ?
