Questions: Evidence For The Afterlife

We provide questions each week based on the theme of our service for our Micro Groups to use. If you're not in a Verve Micro Group, feel free to use them on your own.

This week we continued our series called Imagine Heaven: Rumors From Beyond The Grave and talked about "Evidence For The Afterlife" If you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. When is the closest you ever came to dying? What happened?
  2. How did you feel when you thought you might die?
  3. In this series, we're looking at some stories from people who had near death experiences. How do you feel about those stories? Are you skeptical?
  4. Read 1 Corinthians 15:43-44
  5. The Bible says that after death we will receive better bodies for us for our eternal lives. How does that make you feel?
  6. Read Revelation 21:23-24
  7. God is the light of Heaven. How do you think that might work? Why do you think it's the case? Does it make you feel good?
  8. Read Luke 16:9
  9. It seems there will be an element of Heaven that will be a reunion with loved ones. How does that make you feel?
  10. We can be confidence in life after death not because of reports from people who claim they experienced it, but because Jesus rose from the dead and promises we'll do the same. 
    • Have you ever looked at the evidence for Jesus' resurrection?
    • How should the assurance of life after death change the way you live here and now?
  11. Accountability Question:  How have you passionately pursued opportunities to ambush a few people with God's love? 
  12. Prayer Question:  What could we be praying for you this week? (Is this there something good we could celebrate with you, or a challenge you need God's help with?)
