Sermon Reflections 68

Thursday September 28, 2017
Christ Amidst His Church
Revelation 1:9-20
September 10, 2017
 
FRAMING IT UP
In remembering the sermon, answer these questions: 
 
What does it mean that John is a brother and partner in the tribulation with the 1st century Church? With us?
 
John says he also a fellow partaker with us in the kingdom. What is this kingdom? How does keeping our focus on the kingdom help us persevere in this age of tribulation?
 
What is signified by each of the images of Christ? Should they be taken literally? Is this a picture  of what Jesus looks like or is like?
 
FILLING IT IN
Take some time to meditate on the same truth in these verses:
 
Daniel 7:9-14; Hebrews 4:10
 
WORKING OUT YOUR SALVATION
 
How can we be cultivating a view of the future coming kingdom? How does keeping our eyes there give us strength and hope here?
 
How does a present view of Christ’s power, holiness, dominion, sovereignty, and presence help us persevere in this age of tribulation?
