YOUTUBE DISCUSSION

Topic:
Made to believe

Bible:
Genesis 1:26; Ephesians 2:5

Discussion Starter:
There’s simple joy in this commercial. A boy devises a plan to trick adults into giving him their Doritos. To do so, the boy plays into the adults own childhood fantasy to travel in time.
There’s also a simple truth in this commercial. While not every person dreams about time travel, every human was made to connect with God. Created in His image (Genesis 1:26) we have something embedded in our souls which long to have a relationship with God. This has a way of stopping us in our tracks, like in the commercial, we want to connect with God and automatically are drawn to opportunities to do so. But it’s our sin that keeps us from connecting with God automatically. We look for it but our sin gets in the way.

Here’s the cool part. The Apostle Paul in Ephesians 2:5 writes, “But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.

3 Questions:

  1. Would you rather eat chips or eat vegetables?
  2. When was a time you were tricked by a little kid?
  3. What’s one thing you wish you could ask God?
Chew on this:
Since God is omnipresent why does the Bible sasy he changed his mind? (Exodus 32:14)
