YOUTUBE DISCUSSION

Better Than Lucky

Video:

ConfidenceBible:
2 Timothy 1:5-8

Discussion Starter:
Yes, a young lady named Anna McLuckie just played a song called Get Lucky. How fun is that?

Watching this video you can’t help but notice the confidence of Anna. Here she is, playing a harp– not exactly the coolest instrument in the world– in front of a national television audience and singing a song that everyone in the audience already knows… her confidence is infectious.

When it comes to matters of our faith confidence is something that a lot of Christians struggle with. We are confident in our faith and relationship with Jesus but reserved in how to express that to the outside world.

Paul writes about this to a younger pastor named Timothy, “I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also. For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.” (2 Timothy 1:5-8)

Confidence isn’t arrogance. Confidence in Christ is reliance on the power of God in our lives.

3 Questions

  1. If you could play any musical instrument in the world, which would you pick?
  2. Would you rather take a big risk or play it safe?
  3. When was a time you were confident in your faith?

Chew on this:
How do you know the difference between being confident and over-confident?
