A Case of Spiritual Blindness

A Case of Spiritual Blindness

Luke 16:19-31


Take-Home Truth: “The great chasm is a chilling reminder that there are a million ways you can choose to spend your tiny speck of a life, but only one of two ways to spend the eons of your infinite eternity.” Caleb Crittendon.

Christ-Connection: Apart from Christ, there is an eternity in hell.

Hook: (Ice-breaker question. Get the group talking!)

  1. If you inherited $5 million dollars tomorrow, what would your first initial thought be about how you were going to use that money?

Engage: (Observe the passage and engage with the text) 

  1. Read Luke 16: 19-20. Discuss the contrasts between the rich man’s life and Lazarus’ life?

  1. Read Luke 16:22-26. Discuss the contrasts between their final destination in eternity. Did the rich man’s attitude change in hell? 


 Reflect: (Reflect upon the key take-aways from the sermon)

  1. In the past month, how have your actions reflected the priorities of the rich man? Are you focused on only feeding yourself? What are you doing for the sheep?

  1. Reflect back on the take-home truth. Where will you spend eternity? Which side of the Great Chasm? If you are a follower of Christ, do you have “tears in your eyes” when you think of those who will spend eternity apart from God?


Respond: (Apply the truths of God’s Word to your heart, affections, and actions) 

  1. Are you the rich man who will be shocked by where you spend eternity? Do you need to respond to the call of Christ?

  1. Caleb said: “If we are saved, we can be reminded we are richly blessed and we are stewards of the mysteries of God.” 1 Cor. 4:1-2. How are we faithfully sharing these riches with a world that desperately needs them?
