  1. Even as Christians we can miss Jesus in many areas of life. We are so focused on what we're doing that we miss the ways God wants to use us throughout the day. We rely on our own ability (or lack thereof) to handle situations and we miss out on God's peace. We ignore the boundaries God gives and miss out on his protection. We don't take the time for devotions and prayer and we miss out on spiritual growth.

    This is something I'm sure we could all improve on. Great video!

  2. Wow this really resonats with me. I've recently realized that too much of my identity and security is tied to my ability to control the world around me. I put an unhealthy amount of pressure on myself to work hard, study hard, and think hard so that I can fix and control everything in my life. When I'm unable to do this I feel like a failure and am worried for the future. The problem with this method is it all depends on me, not God. I need to completely surrender my situation to God trusting in his ability to control it not mine. The more I surrender the more he will show me what do and empower me to do it well. It's not my responsibility to figure everything out, especially at 2:30 in the morning as is often the case.

  3. For me the biggest take away was verse 32 which parallels Ephesians 2:9, that righteousness is not earned through works. For me this really connected the whole video together because I feel that it just further clarifies that you do not earn righteousness by walking "the right way" or the "Christian way" but that you just need to have faith in God.

  4. my take away from this video would for sure be the last few statements of the video

    "in what ways are you perhaps married to your old ways of doing things?"

    "what good things are you pursuing that may be blinding you from the great thing god has done and is doing in your life"

    Are you so committed to walking the "right" or "Christian" path that you actually trip over Jesus along the way and don’t even realise it”

  5. first I have to say THANK YOU…I thank God for using you to help guide me through my studies. the biggest thing I took from the passage was that I need to figure out what I'm doing that is keeping me from stumbling over Jesus like the Jews did. I need to figure this out so I do not miss the ultimate greatness of God.

  6. I was so confused reading the beginning of this chapter. Sometimes I forget to take in the context of the Bible.. However, when I was reading I understood (could be wrong) that god chooses some people to follow him, but know that others won’t. And I’m so confused with that. Why would God let his children go into their demise?? Saul became Paul because God chose him.. so why can’t all of us be saved??

  7. When you mentioned "trying to live a perfect Christian life= stumbling over Jesus" it really made me step back and evaluate. I've been so distant from God, not wanting to listen to what he has to say so I've been ignoring him yet I'm still portraying that perfect Christian life that in my heart I am not living.

  8. How Paul was so set on sharing God's word and making sure as many people as possible were saved and found Him that he wished to be cut off from God if it meant they were able to help them find God. That's incredible to me and gave me a new perspective of how much more I could be doing to spread God's word.

  9. Doubting Israelite: 😠Then why do God get mad bro, when we do wrong we just doing what we where made fo
    Paul: why would you say to the Creator "Ummmm… Nope I think you wrong Creator" when he made you though. Paul was like 😒fah rrrreal though.

  10. My biggest take away was when you said that the people were so married to their old ways that they missed Jesus. I know I have some stuff that is distracting and this inspired me to do somethings different 😊

  11. … or maybe those people were confused because Jesus' ministry was very confusing and contradicts in many points the Old Testament. The Old Testament says that there's only One God, it speaks of no Trinity, it says that the promised Messiah will bring peace on Earth (while Jesus clearly mentions that He didn't come to bring peace), it doesn't mention a second coming, and what does Jesus do? He says that He and The Father are One and that whoever has seen Him has seen The Father, but also prays to The Father, so what does that mean? That God came to Earth to preach about Himself and prayed to Himself while claiming that He is greater than Himself? And then promised the apostles that He will ascend to Paradise, sit at the right of Himself, and then send The Holy Spirit to fill them until The Gospel is spread throughout the Earth, and then He will return quickly (many of the apostles thought that the second coming will happen during their lifetime) and establish His Kingdom. Not surprising that many of the 1st century Jews didn't understand what Paul was talking about.

  12. I was raised to follow rules. My parents expected me to be Christian and nothing else. They kept shoving Jesus down my throat, which only made me not wanna believe. They kept forcing me to go to participate in church when my heart wasn't into it. They tried so hard to force me to believe in God instead of letting me come to Him myself at my own pace. Thankfully, other things have happened that have made me turn to God on my own. What's holding me back is that I'm trying to have a relationship with God on my own and at my own pace, but my parents (mainly my dad) keep expecting too much from me. At one point when I felt my relationship with God was finally getting good, my dad ridiculed me when I said I couldn't always make it to church, making me question my faith all over again. Honestly, please pray for him because I really believe he's trying too hard to be "Christian" making it all about the works when it's not, and as a parent he's only hurting my faith rather than helping it.
