Remember It

1. Is it important to separate the eulogy from the sermon as part of the service?
If there is no separation, your hearers may go away thinking good people go to heaven.
2. What does it mean to make the connection?
It means to segue an aspect of the eulogy and lead it into presenting the gospel.
3. What are the various references to the “Chariots of fire and the horsemen thereof”?
2 Kings 2; 2 Kings 6; 2 Kings 13 and Luke 16.

Discuss It

  1. Explain the hope and joy a dying believer can derive from the phrase “the chariots of fire and the horsemen thereof”?
  2. How would you explain to a family member of the dying, “We are not prolonging life but prolonging death?”

Apply It

  1. Practice writing a eulogy, using the life of a person now passed on. Add stories and quotes to make it interesting and challenging. As part of your preparation, talk with the surviving spouse and/or family members, to collect memorable stories about the individual.
