A Taste from the Tree of Life

October 11, 2020 Speaker: Jonathan Sgalambro Series: To Those Who Conquer

Scripture: Revelation 2:1–7

Community Group Questions: 

Engage Yourselves: 

  • What excited you most when you first became a Christian? In what ways has that excitement faded, and why do you think that is?
  • Describe a time when you were on the receiving end of truth devoid of love. What was that experience like?

Engage the Text: 

  • Read v. 5. What about this verse is most sobering, and what might repentance look like for someone struggling in this area?
  • 1 talks about “golden lampstands”. This is the same word used in Matt. 5:15; Mk. 4:21; Lk. 8:16 and 11:33. What about its usage in Revelation might be significant in light of these other verses?

Engage your Neighbor: 

  • Describe a time when a commitment to truth kept you from engaging a non-Christian neighbor. How could you have navigated that situation differently?
  • What might remembering “the love you had at first” look like for you, specifically as it relates to others?
