What are some ways you struggle with the concept of Hell? How does scripture speak to those struggles and concepts?
How does eternal damnation motivate you to pray for yourselves and for others? Talk about some other responses you have to eternal damnation.
Who will you be praying for and sharing the Gospel with in response to the truth about Hell revealed in the sermon? How can we help you pray for and bring that person to Jesus?
