Discussion Questions

1. As you think about going to heaven one day, and standing before Jesus, do you feel nervous, excited, curious, hopeful, or something else? Discuss that.

2. Have you ever participated in a courtroom issue, as a plaintiff, defendant, witness or juror? What was that like? How do you think standing in God’s courtroom will resemble that? How might it be different?

3. If you were to be judged by God only on the basis of your own works, do you think you’d feel confident to present your case for entering heaven? Consider all of the things you’ve done, the words you’ve spoken and the motives of your heart.

4. What kinds of rewards do you think Jesus might be handing out in heaven? What do you think about the idea that we should go for all the rewards we can?
How could that become a negative thing and how can we keep a proper perspective on it?
