Discussion Guide: What’s After ATX – Week 3

Before We Get Started

For our discussion today we will be using this discussion guide with questions from this week’s video as well as some additional questions we have added for further conversation. If you would like to follow along you can access this discussion guide on the website at mosaicchurchaustin.com and then select “community group resources” in the menu options.

Prayer

As we get started let’s take a moment to pray and ask God to give us helpful, compassionate, and loving conversation with one another and to help us all walk away feeling encouraged and hopeful about what happens when we pass from this life to the next.

This Week’s Topic

Throughout the next 6 weeks we will looking at what the Bible has to say about life after death through the lens of near death experiences. Today, our focus will on:

The Most Beautiful Place

Before we take a look at the beauty of Heaven…

What do you love most about the beauty of earth? What are the most beautiful paces on earth to you?

Discussion Questions

Questions from the video

When you think about the beauty and possibility of a world to come – what do you most hope for or wonder about?

If time and travel are not an obstacle in Heaven, what would you love to do or see, and with whom?

If all we love about earth pales in comparison to Heaven, how might that change how we live now?

Additional Questions

Romans 8:18-21

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.”

 

When you hear these descriptions of what the scenery, environment and landscape is like in Heaven, how does it make you feel? Why do you think that is?

What do you suppose Paul means when he says, “Creation waits with eager longing…?”

Closing Thought

In light of what Heaven is like, how do you feel when you look out at the brokenness of our present day reality? How might that help you better understand the heart of God?

 

Prayer

As we close our time together, is there anything we can pray for you right now?
