SCRIPTURE FOCUS
Revelation 21:1-9

ICEBREAKER QUESTIONS
What comes to mind when you hear the words, “a new home”?

What are some ways to use pain to grow spiritually?

How can we prepare ourselves for a place like the New Jerusalem?

KEY VERSE
Revelation 12:4

LESSON NUGGET
Why did Jesus give John this preview of eternal glory? To encourage His people who go through testing and persecution. “I go to prepare a place for you” (John 14:1-6) is the best medicine for a broken heart and the best foundation for wavering feet.

SCRIPTURE FOCUS
Revelation 21:10-27

ICEBREAKER QUESTIONS
When you think of moving to a “New City” what questions come to mind?

What are the benefits of being a citizen of God’s Kingdom?

How does John’s heavenly vision provide a peace and hope for a follower of Christ?

KEY VERSE
Revelation 21:14

LESSON NUGGET
I’m sure our jaws will drop when we see the magnificence of heaven, with all these precious metals and stones being used as building materials. We regard these materials as being precious and valuable, but the amazing thing about God is that He just sees them as building materials and decoration. He doesn’t treasure them. He treasures you.

We are His treasure; we are what He values most, Peter said that we are “rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious” (1 Peter 2:4). Value is usually determined by rarity, and God only made one of you. He loves you and values you and has invited you to be a part of His eternal family. What a wonderful thing.

SCRIPTURE FOCUS
Revelation 22:1-9

ICEBREAKER QUESTIONS
Why do you think it is difficult to imagine how wonderful heaven will be?

How should we “mark“ ourselves as believers?

KEY VERSES
Revelation 22:1

LESSON NUGGET
There will be no need for the sun in heaven or for other sources of light because God is the light of heaven. The whole place will be illuminated by Him. And we will see His face. What an experience it will be to see the face of God! Moses wanted to see God’s face, but God told him it would kill him. God passed by and let Moses just get a glimpse of His afterglow. But in heaven we will look God in the face and live and rule and reign in the light of His presence.

SCRIPTURE FOCUS
Revelation 22:10-21

ICEBREAKER QUESTIONS
Why is it important to believe that no one is beyond repentance as long as he or she is alive?

How can you find motivation to continue being a faithful witness even when (or especially when) nonbelievers refuse to repent?

What does it mean that “the time is near” and that Christ is “coming soon”?

KEY VERSE
Revelation 22:18-19

LESSON NUGGET
“And the Spirit and the bride say, 'Come!’"  The offer is open to everyone! God hasn’t closed the door on anyone. It is “whoever desire.” God created you with that ability to choose. You can determine your future by exercising your free will to come to Him. It can’t be easier than that! God has left it up to you. You will have no excuse for rejecting His offer of salvation. Whoever desires. Take the water of life freely! Come to Jesus.
