On Sunday, November 1, 2020, Teaching Pastor Bruce Hess’ message is “Eternal Rewards, Part 1”. Below are some questions for your personal or group reflection.
1. How often have you heard teaching on the subject of eternal rewards? Why do you think the subject isn’t addressed more frequently?
2. Some people feel that encouraging a believer to make spiritual life choices with the motive of gaining an eternal reward sounds wrong…sounds mercenary-like. Why do you think that is? How does that idea square with Scripture?
3. Re-read 2 Corinthians 5:6-10. What should we learn from such a passage? Elaborate.
4. CS Lewis said this in Mere Christianity: If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the future world, that they have become so ineffective in this.
Pray that God will deepen your personal focus on the world to come—which, indeed, is our true home.
