WORSHIP REIMAGINED Part 6: Coming Soon
Theme: In light of Jesus’ second coming, we are called to watch for his return, watch our lives against sin and to watch for needs in the lives of those around us.
1. What stood out to you from the message?
2. When you hear that Jesus is coming soon, how does your heart respond? Excitement? Fear? Apathy? How do you want to respond?
3. List the descriptions of Jesus found in Revelation 22:12-20. What image is most challenging? What image is most comforting?
4. Pastor Josh encouraged us to “watch for Jesus” and “watch our lives against sin” and “watch for opportunities to serve.” Which is easier for you and why?
5. Read Revelation 22:12-14. Consider the sins of those “outside the city.” Why would they be outside the city of God?
6. Compare 2 Corinthians 5:19-21 with Revelation 22:12-17. What is God’s heart towards sinners? What is his process of dealing with their sin? What do these two texts invite us to do?
7. What sinful habits or attitudes do you need to wash away in order to develop a watchful attitude?
8. How do you feel led to pray?
Worship Reimagined Study Challenge
There are two texts per day. One way to worship God intentionally is twice per day, with one verse in the morning and one in the evening.
First, be silent in prayer for 1 minute.
Second, thank God for 2 specific things.
Third, invite Jesus to speak to you by asking these 3 questions.
1. What am I learning from these passages about Jesus?
2. Who is He inviting me to share this with?
3. How is He speaking to me during these times of worship?
Finish in prayer for yourself, your family, your neighbors, your co-workers, your church.
