ICEBREAKER: What useless facts do you know?

1. How does the fact that there will be a new heaven and a new earth without any sea influence how you view this present life [Revelation 21;1]? Also consider Isaiah 65:17-25; Colossians 3:1-4; and 2 Peter 3:11-13.

2. What will be the defining feature of the new Jerusalem [Revelation 21:2-3], and how does this bring you comfort, assurance, and hope today [cf. Ezekiel 37:24-28; John 1:14; and Hebrews 11:13-16]?

3. How are the promises of Revelation 21:4 helping you persevere through the pains and problems of this life [cf. Isaiah 25:8; Luke 20:34-36; and 1 Corinthians 15:26]?

4. What does the Lord promise to those who are spiritually parched [Revelation 21:6]? How is He satisfying your thirsty soul today [cf. John 4:7-15; John 7:37-39; and Revelation 22:17]?

5. How is the sobering list of those destined for the lake of fire and the second death [Revelation 21:8] prompting you to regularly self-examine your own life [cf. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Galatians 5:19-21; and 1 Timothy 1:8-11]?

6. What does the beauty of the new Jerusalem of Revelation 21:9-14 show you about the character of our God [cf. Isaiah 60:17-22; Ezekiel43:1-5; and Hebrews 12:22-24]?

7. What did you find helpful or challenging about this Sunday’s message?

“The New Heaven and New Earth will be God resetting and recreating the heavens and the earth, where sin and the effects of sin will no longer be present. You will be able to enjoy the beauty of God’s presence in all of his glory, unhindered by the presence of sin.” (Clarence L. Haynes Jr.)
