On Sunday, May 1, 2022 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on Revelation 5:1-7. This message was part two in the “Lord of Heaven” series. Below you will find questions related to the message for personal reflection or group discussion. You will also find the audio and video of the sermon to listen to/watch, download or share.
- Read Revelation 5:1-7
- Imagine a universe where Jesus was not CURRENTLY ALIVE AND EXALTED? What would we lose if Jesus were simply retired to heaven and not risen and reigning and preparing to return?
- John weeps in heaven because of the (apparent) lack of anyone who can open the scroll (see 5:4). Based on what we discussed in today’s message, what does the scroll represent, and why do you think it was such a big deal to John?
- Have you ever felt like the “weight of the world was on your shoulders”? When was that? How did it make you feel? In Revelation 5, we are reminded that ONLY JESUS is worthy and able to take the “weight of the world” … we were never designed to carry it!
- In Revelation 5:5, we see the Elder encourage John with a picture of Jesus. What stood out to you MOST about the description of Jesus that follow? Further, who can you encourage to look to Jesus based on this description so that they also may be encouraged?
- What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
