The Treasure & the Pearl

Message by Eddy Inglis on Sunday the 16th of September.


  1. Can you share something of how you came to ‘find’ the treasure that is Jesus?
  2. How can we reconcile, “then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field." (Matthew 13:46) with "But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.” Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house,” (Luke 19:8-9)
  3. The merchant in Matthew 13:45, 46, found a pearl that was perfect for what he was doing. He knew the right place for the pearl that he had purchased, it had its place. What do you believe that you are called and designed to fulfil in His church?
  4. Do you struggle to believe at times that you are valuable and valued by God?
  5. Why do you think this is so at times?
  6. How do you think that knowing you are valuable and valued by God, in a unique way should / has / will affect you in the future?
  7. It was said (on Sunday) that, “God’s default setting is joy” (Psalm 16:11) "You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand" as an example. How far do you believe this to be true?
