Jesus Greater Than Angels
Getting to Know you Better:
• What does your name mean?
• What was one of your nicknames and why?
• Most of us think angels are nice fluffy cherubs that shoot hearts from a bow or sit nicely on a Christmas tree. Look up the following references and describe how the bible depicts angels. (Rev.4:8, Daniel 10:5-6, Matt.28:4, Ezekiel 1:4-24)
• Why are we commanded not to worship angels?
o Look up Col.2:18 and Rev.22:8-9 to help you answer.
• Look up the following verses and discuss how to put Jesus first in our lives.
o Matt.15:8, Rev.2:4, 1 Cor.10:31, Mark 12:30
• How would you answer someone claiming Jesus is only a created being and not God?
o Use Col.1:15-16, Heb.1:1-3, John 1:1-3 to help you answer.
• Jesus is going to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords for eternity, but we will also be reigning with him. Look up the following verses and describe what that reign will look like: 2 Tim.2:11-13, Psalm 8, Luke 19:11-27
Taking it Home:
• What do I need to give up so that Jesus reigns over every aspect of my life? Write down one area you need to give over to Jesus and consistently ask God to deliver you from that for the next several weeks.
• Is there anything I’ve added to Jesus because I don’t think he’s quite enough?
