YOUTUBE DISCUSSION

Hang glider goes oofta

Lies we believeBible:
1 John 3:1Romans 12:3

Discussion starter:
In the video the hang glider thought he could fly. While we can giggle at his misfortune in the video, it’s just as easy for us to believe things about ourselves which aren’t true. Sometimes we look in the mirror and don’t like what we see. Or maybe there are things about our personality we wish we could change? Or maybe, in dark moments, we wish we could be a completely different person?

There are a lot of lies we can tell ourselves. But, as a Christ follower, there are also some truths that we can reflect on and relax in the undeniable truth of. Romans 12:3 says, “Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment.” Notice that Paul doesn’t say, “Think poorly of yourself.” He says, “See yourself for who you are!” In the same way in 1 John 3 it says, “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!”

In times when you second-guess who you are in this world, reflect back on who God says you are, a child of God.

3 Questions:

  1. Would you rather go hang gliding or bungee jumping?
  2. Have you ever had a bad moment or big mistake captured on video?
  3. What are some lies people believe about themselves?

Chew on this:
How can I be both confident in who I am in Christ and humble as a child of God?
