The Mission Exists because Worship Does Not

The Mission Exists because Worship Does Not

Mar 18, 2018

Passage: Deuteronomy 16:18-30:20

Preacher: Dr. Colby E. Kinser

Series: Dude! It's Deuteronomy!



Read Deuteronomy 16:18 - 30:20. Yes, all of it. (It won’t take that long, really.) How many echoes of Christ do you see? How is this significant?

With your family:

Find pictures of a judge, a king, a prophet, and a religious leader (priest). Ask your kids what their job is. What would make an excellent judge, king, prophet, or religious leader? Then discuss how Jesus is all of these perfectly.

With your small group:


  • What stands out to you in these verses? Why?
  • What bothers you about these verses? Why?
  • Discuss the self-reflection question above.
  • Discuss the statement that “Mission exists because worship does not.” (This phrase is borrowed from John Piper.)
  • Given this passage, what should you do this week?
