YOUTUBE DISCUSSION

Stunts of Faith

Video
http://goo.gl/8kQJc

Topic
Faith

Bible
Matthew 17:20

Discussion Starter
Everything about that clip defies physics. Watch it again. How did he get so far in front of the other car? How was he able to just step out of a spinning car? How was one shot able to flip that car like that? And grabbing the bad guy out of a spinning car… did he somehow unfasten his seatbelt because there’s no way he would have been sitting in the driver’s seat, flipping like that without a harness. Right?

But it did make for a pretty cool action sequence. If the police could capture every bad guy like that people would pay to be cops instead of the other way around.

In Matthew 17:20, Jesus says something that is even more bold than the video. “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

My faith can move a mountain? Like, had Jesus ever actually seen a mountain when he said that? Read verses 1-19 of that same chapter and you’ll see that Jesus and his disciples had just walked down from a mountain prior to him saying that. (verse 9)

Whatever the mountain is in your life. Whatever obstacle between you and where you need to go, Jesus tells us to have bold faith!

(Our lawyer wants you to know that no matter how much faith you have, please don’t jump out of moving cars, OK?)

3 Questions

  1. Would you rather be a filmmaker or a stunt person?
  2. What would be the coolest thing you can imagine God moving?
  3. When was a time you needed God to move a big mountain in your life?

Chew on this
Why do you think Jesus compares a tiny mustard seed to faith?
