What makes it challenging to approach the Bible with an open mind and without bias? Do you think you have any biases or assumptions that impact you as you read Scripture or think about Heaven?

  • What is confusing to you from this passage? What questions does it raise for you?
  • Jesus taught his followers to pray, “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:9-10). What does it mean to bring Heaven to earth?
  • What is a way you feel like God has gifted you in bringing Heaven to earth?
