The Story – A Hope – Heaven

THE STORY: Week 18 – Heaven

  1. Do you spend much time ‘daydreaming’ about Heaven? Why/why not? What has been the picture of Heaven you’ve had growing up? Does it match what the Bible actually says about eternity?
  2. Read Matthew 6:19-24. Jesus’ first sermon (The Sermon on the Mt.) includes this instruction: to ‘lay up treasure in heaven.’ What are some ways you are currently doing that? Are there more ways you could do that? Why do you think Jesus included the statement in vs. 24 in this discussion? Read 2 Peter 3:11-13.
  3. For further reading, see Revelation 21-22. How do you see the New Creation reflecting Original Creation in Genesis 1-2? Do you ever struggle with thinking Heaven will get ‘boring’? How does picturing Heaven like living in that Garden, overseeing and working and exploring, help battle those thoughts?
  4. Revelation 20:15 says that it is eternally important to have our names written in the book of life. Is yours? Do you know someone who might not have their name written in that book? List them and begin (or continue) to pray everyday that the Lord would ‘open a door to speak the Gospel’ to them (Col. 4:3).
