YOUTUBE DISCUSSION

The Games We Play

Topic:
Childlike faith

Bible:
Mark 10:15

Discussion starter:
“Don’t stick your hand out of the window!” Chances are pretty high that you’ve heard this from an adult in your lifetime. You were enjoying the aerodynamics of your hand while sitting in the passenger seat of a car and a concerned adult was trying to make sure you didn’t break your arm. (Or worse!)

Just like with your imagination, some people have a tendency to want your faith in Jesus to “grow up.” They’d like to see you giving up the belief that Jesus is God and is capable of anything, including working miracles in your heart and through your life. But that’s not Jesus’ desire for you. He says in Mark 10:15, “Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” In an upside down sort of way, Jesus asks us to embrace faith in him in a childlike, makes-no-sense kind of way. Why? Just like when we played these games as kids, one reason Jesus wants us to have faith like a little child is because when we do that nothing can stop us!

3 Questions:

  1. Did you play imaginary games like that as a kid? If so, what were they?
  2. Which of the games in the video are you most likely to relive in the next 24 hours?
  3. Have you ever seen God do something in your life that’s impossible?

Chew on this:
If Jesus wants us to have childlike faith then why are we in such a hurry to grow up?
