God's Extreme Earth Makeover (Revelation 21)

If you could give one room in your house a "makeover" which room would you choose? What would you do?

If you could give one part of your life a "makeover" what would you choose? What would you do?

Read Revelation 21:1. Why do you think God needs to give the world a "makeover"? What things most need to change?

What are some ways you have observed sin and the presence of sin impacting your life and the lives of people around you?

Read Revelation 21:2-4. Which part of the new heaven and new earth is most appealing to you? Why?

What advantage is there to living in the presence of God? Can you think of any experiences that might help to illustrate what this will be like?

Read Revelation 21:5. What has Jesus done to "make all things new?" How did His work on the cross make things new? What else has He done?

What part of your life has already been made new because of your relationship with Jesus? What part of your life do you think He wants you to work on next?

Read Revelation 21:7. What do you think it means to be "victorious?" Who or what is being defeated? How have you experienced victory in your spiritual life? How have you experienced defeat?

How can this "TEAM" work together to ensure each person experiences victory? What can you contribute to your teammates? What do you need from them?

How will you make yourself over this week?
