DISCUSSION

Share these questions in your household or with others from OBC over the phone

Take a moment to think about heaven. What images/thoughts come to mind?

How can we make Colossians 3:1-4 a daily focus, driving us, reminding us of this heavenly glory?

Explain the similarities and differences between the physical and the spiritual body mentioned in 1 Corinthians 15:44

Discuss the ways in which the Bible's teaching focuses on the Eschatos (Greek for "Last One," Jesus Christ), not the eschata (Greek for the "last things").

What does it mean for us today to live as 'citizens of heaven'?

STEP 5

MISSION & PRAYER

This week, many of us may be & have been feeling worn down, trapped & discouraged. Let's set our sights on heaven, allow it to fill our thoughts.

 

Let's spend time listing the blessings of today & what is yet to come.

Pray that this "inkling of heaven" fill us with joy, with drive & purpose.

Connect with 3 other OBC households this week via phone or zoom, caring for them as we journey together towards this heavenly glory!
