How it Ends | Week 1: Real Importance

Why would a book about a beast with multiple heads, a bleeding lamb, a serpent, and a dragon actually matter to us now? First, because it’s the story of God’s design for us coming full circle. Second, looking at the end gives us hope for tomorrow and a lens to look at our lives today. Third, we know who wins.

Process, journal or discuss the themes of this article - here's a few questions to get the ball rolling...

Welcome to the Chaser–a few questions after the weekend service to start conversations. If this is your first time in a group, or your group has new members, take a few minutes and introduce yourself. Two truths and a lie is always a good place to start.

  1. On a scale of 1-10, how creeped out are you by talking about the end times? And why? (1 - I’m good. Nothing is weird to me. 10- I’m reading the DaVinci Code and going to sleep with the lights on tonight.)

  2. A lamb, (Rev. 5:11) a lion (Rev. 5:5) and a guy on a white horse with a mouth-sword (Rev. 19:11-16). How would you describe Jesus at his full bandwidth?

  3. In the end, God will redeem and restore the world. What do you need to be redeemed and restored today? Are you willing to let Jesus work on that area?

  4. Remember the part about the seven heads and ten crowns? Metaphors aside, where are you placing crowns in your life? Why?

  5. How you follow Jesus is all that matters. What does it mean to forget the Hollywood stories and instead prepare spiritually for the end?

Challenge

The end is simple. And so is this challenge. You just talked about giving Jesus control, crowns and spiritually preparing. Now, what are you gonna do about it? Declare a simple step to the group and take it this week.
