The Human Mattress
Topic: Conforming to God’s way
Bible: Romans 12:2
Two weird things went through my head when I watched this video. First, someone would have had to contact the Guinness Book of World records to find out the current record for Human Dominoes. Second, someone must have sent out a hilarious email asking for volunteers to participate in this. Can you imagine the subject line?
A key to the whole thing working was all 850 conforming to the pattern so that each human domino fell in the right order at the right time. In Romans 12:2, the Apostle Paul says what we all know in our souls. We are all conforming to some sort of pattern. Paul’s challenge for us is to give up conforming to the world’s pattern, but to instead be transformed by the renewing of our minds around Christ. In other words, we aren’t born conforming our lives to the right things. Jesus has to intervene and help us get a brand new mind.
- Would you rather be the person who set this up or one of the people who got to be a domino?
- What are some patterns of the world that you’ve noticed?
- Why does it matter that Jesus can renew our minds? (HINT: Check out the second half of Romans 12:2)
Chew on This:
So many people in our lives challenge us to step up and be a leader. What if being a leader is conforming to the patterns of this world and Jesus is calling you to something else?
