Three Questions:

Acts 16:30

Someone said, "Just when you think that you have all the answers, they change the questions!" At times I am sure that all of us have felt similar frustrations. A little boy was asking a lot of questions of an older man. The older man asked him why he had so many questions. The boy said, "I've only been around for five years, there are a lot of things I don't know yet!" Good answer!

There are many questions we need to ask ourselves throughout life. As children we were asked what we wanted to be when we grow up? Later on it was what college or training should I pursue? Maybe it was where do I want to go to work? Should I get married? How many children should we have? What about retirement? There are many other questions that we may ask, but this morning I want to discuss three very important questions for all of us. How we answer these three questions will have a lot to do with all the other questions we face throughout our lives.

I. A Question of Salvation: What must I do to be saved? cf Acts 16:30

II. A Question of Lordship: Why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? cf Lk. 6:46

III. A Question of Love: "Lovest thou me more than these?" cf John 21:15

A question of salvation, of Lordship and obedience, and of love and service. How do we answer these this morning? It is for sure that we must answer them for ourselves. No one else can answer for us. It is also equally sure that God already knows the answers. The importance is in our knowing them.
