On Sunday, September 18, 2022 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on Revelation 21:1-8. This message was part 5 of the “Lord of New Heaven and Earth” sermon series. Below you will find questions related to the message for personal reflection or group discussion. You will also find audio and video of the message to listen to/watch, download or share.
- Read Revelation 21:1-8
- In what ways do you see yourselves and others minimize God’s grace in salvation?
- After this life is over, there is a new heaven and new earth, and we are given a new body. This shows God’s commitment to material things! Things in this life are corrupted by sin and will degrade over time, but after this age is done, God will recreate a new world in which we will live. How does this concept of a new heaven and earth compare to the “eternity” you have always imagined?
- The New Heaven and Earth will have both a city and God … who dwells with His people there! This is a reminder that the WHO of eternity is more important than the WHAT or WHERE. How does knowing that you will be with the other saints in the presence of God on a new earth encourage you as you think about the culmination of all things?
- The one who is a believer in Jesus Christ inherits all things (21:7). How does this perspective help you deal with the loss and uncertainty of life today?
- This life carries with it suffering and sorrow … but it is only temporary! What is a sorrow or pain or loss that you have experienced or are experiencing that seems like it will go forever? Remember the pain of today will vanish like dew in the morning!
- The only pain that will be celebrated for all time is the sacrifice Jesus made for us. Take a moment and thank Him for His indescribable gift!
- What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
