Week 4

Conversation Starter

When you think of heaven, what do you picture? How does that match up to the Biblical description?

Discussion Questions

  • Read 2 Corinthians 5:8 How will I get heaven? [You’ll die or Jesus will come back.] Why is it important for us to know how immediate we will be with Jesus? [There is no limbo or purgatory. It can remove fear knowing that as soon as we leave this earth we’ll be in heaven with Jesus.]
  • Read 1 Corinthians 13:12. How does knowing that all of your questions will be answered immediately in heaven affect how you live here on earth? [Upper Story/Lower Story – We can lay our questions down at the feet of Jesus, knowing that even if they are not answered here, they will be answered in heaven.]
  • When you’ve pictured what you will be doing in heaven in the past, what did you think? How does that match what the Bible says we’ll be doing in heaven?
  • Was there anything in the sermon that surprised you or changed your expectations or ideas of heaven? If so, what?

Pray

  • Read Matthew 6:19-21. Pray and ask God to reveal to you where your treasure is stored? What are you doing to save up for heaven? Are you ready?
