YOUTUBE DISCUSSIONLiving a Fearless Life


A fearless life

Mark 4:35-41

Discussion Starter:
“Be careful!” Chances are high that your parents say that phrase regularly. Be careful going to school, be careful going out with friends, be careful while playing your favorite sport. For parents, it’s only natural to say as they don’t want to see you get hurt.

Either the people featured in this video ignored their parents advice or they or they know the difference between being careful and being fearful.

Be careful saying be careful! In Mark 4, the disciples experience pure terror. They are out on a large lake in a relatively small boat when a huge storm comes in. Mark writes, “the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped.” Interesting, Jesus slept through the whole thing. At some point in the night the storm got so bad that they woke up Jesus just to ask him why he wasn’t afraid. After calming the storm Jesus corrected them, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

Following Jesus often means overcoming fear and living a fearless life. As we follow Jesus in the storms of our lives he reminds us that when we are faithful– our fear will be put in its proper place.

3 Questions:

  • Which of the stunts from the video would you like to do the most? The least?
  • What are things that you are afraid of?
  • How would your day-to-day life look different if your faith was fearless?

Chew on this:
Is faith the opposite of fear?
