Thoughts of John

What is on my mind.

The Great Separation: Luke 3:15-22

Summary: There is coming a day when the Lord will separate the wheat from the chaff. It’s a message that the world wants to ignore. However, it is a common theme in Scripture, so we must address it.

1. How do we know that judgment is certain?

Isaiah 24:1-3, Hebrews 9:27, Revelation 20:11-15

2. Did even Jesus speak of judgment?

Matthew 13:36-43, Matthew 13:47-50, John 5:24

3. What did Jesus recommend we do after hearing of such judgment?

Matthew 13:43 & 51

4. If we do NOT heed Jesus’ advice, what will eventually happen?

Matthew 13:42 & 50, Matthew 18:7-9

5. Is the coming judgment final and everlasting?

I Thessalonians 1:6-9, Mark 9:43, Luke 3:17

6. Our response to John the Baptist’s call to Christ is a window into our own heart. What was the emphasis of John the Baptist’s preaching in Luke 3:3 and John 3:36? Are these two inseparable?

7. Speaking of repentance, what does it mean?

8. Ultimately, what was John the Baptists ministry (and ours) really about?

Luke 3:4, Luke 3:16, John 3:30

9. Does “the world” sometimes seem to be indistinguishable from believers? Should we be concerned about that?

Matthew 13:24-30, Matthew 5:45, Psalm 73

10. What happened to John the Baptist for boldly proclaiming Christ (v. 18-20)? Should we fear a similar fate?

Romans 8:18, II Corinthians 4:17-18, I Peter 1:6-7

11. Is judgment part of the gospel?

Romans 2:16

12. Do we all deserve judgment?

Romans 3:10

13. How can we escape the judgment of God? Can God “pass over” our sin? We must continue to remind ourselves that God’s free gift cost Him everything.

Romans 6:23, I Corinthians 5:7, I John 4:10
