YOUTUBE DISCUSSION


Skyaking

Nail the Landing

Video:

Topic:
Finish well

Bible:
Hebrews 12:1-2

Discussion Starter:
While unconventional this idea is brilliant. A skydiver who also loves kayaking only naturally dreams up skyaking. Secretly, I’m hoping that somewhere out there a bull rider who also loves skydiving is dreaming up skybullriding!

The simple reality is that most people watch that video kind of hoping he doesn’t nail the landing. If he hadn’t nailed the landing this video would have 10 million views instead of 300,000.

That’s a little like our life with Jesus, isn’t it?. Something deep in our friends souls recognizes that there is something different about us. As the Holy Spirit lives in and through us we stick out and just our friends learn a lot about being a Christian simply by how we live and interact with day-to-day life. They are wondering, “Will he nail the landing or fall on his face?”

The author of Hebrews speaks to this. He reminds us to focus and finish well. “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

3 Questions:
– What are two sports you’d like to combine to make something awesome?
– Have you ever had a time when you embarrassed yourself in front of your friends?
– With school winding down, what are ways you can finish this school year well?
