The Playlist Part 1 Study Questions

Below are some study questions from last week’s message, “The Playlist” part 1 – It is Well With My Soul. For a modern version of this song click here.

If you are in a LifeGroup/Bible Study, feel free to use these questions as a resource.

Pastor Dan Shaw

Read: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Questions: 1- What does Paul say about mourning? a. Is it ok for Christians to mourn? Did Jesus ever mourn? (John 11) b. Why is the mourning of a Christian different? Why does hope matter?

2- What does Paul say is going to happen when Jesus comes again? a. The Bible leaves out some details about his coming back but why is it important to know the details that are given? b. Why does that hope change how we think about death and how we think about the present as well?

3- Why do you think the Thessalonians might have been upset that their friends/family would not have experienced the second coming of Jesus?

4- What are some other beliefs about the afterlife? How is the Christian view different?

5- Churches have split over “End times” discussions. Why is that a problem? What should all believers be unified on when it comes to Jesus coming back?

6-Name a trying time where God taught you to say “It is well with my soul”.

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Refrain
It is well, (it is well),
With my soul, (with my soul)
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

And Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trumpet shall sound, and the Lord shall descend,
A song in the night, oh my soul!
