Detail:

Conversation starter. Start light and fun conversation in your group about the series topic.

  • Knowing that you will receive a new body in heaven, what changes are you looking forward to?

Contemplate. Ask questions to get your group thinking about these principles.

  • Read 1 Corinthians 15:44-49. Talk about the similarities and differences between Adam and Jesus. What does it mean to “bear the image of the heavenly man?
  • Read Matthew 22:29-30. Talk about it. Remember God’s power and greatness far outweighs anything you could imagine.

Contribute. Ask questions that create personal openness in your group.

  • When the new earth comes, what “bad stuff” will you be glad is gone from yourself and others.
  • If anyone in the group has a story of helping someone come to faith in Jesus. How do they feel knowing someone will experience an eternity in heaven as a result of their help?

Cry out to God. Pray intensely for your group on the topic.

Father, we want an eternity in heaven with You. Fill us with a desire to help others get there too. We thank You for sending Jesus to die on the cross for the wrongs we’ve done to You. Help us spread His name to everyone with whom we come in contact. Thank You. It is in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

Commit to change. What’s a new area to grow with the Lord?

  • I will tell three new people about Jesus this week.
  • I will invest my life in The Vertical Church by taking my first step and serving.
