Sunday to Monday | Inside Out Living

Two videos were part of Sunday's worship experience, focused on how Jesus cares more about what's inside, in our hearts and minds, than about how our lives look from the outside.  Watch these videos again (or for the first time if you missed Sunday morning), and think about the questions below each one.

 

  • Does the man on the bench in anyway represent your life?
  • Have you ever been really honest with someone about one of your shortcomings? Was the reaction positive or negative?
  • Jesus' reaction to your complete honesty about your failings is consistently love and grace. 

 

  • We only share our deepest secrets and hurts with the people we trust the most. Does your prayer life reflect a depth of sharing your inner most thoughts that demonstrates a close relationship with God? 

 More questions to help you use scripture to connect Sunday to the rest of your week:

  • Jesus’ best teachings often arise from conflict. Do you avoid a good conflict at all costs? Is Jesus possibly desiring to draw you into a conflict to teach you something? Mark 7:1-8 
  • What spiritual hypocrisies do you maintain in your life? Where are you outer and inner life inconsistent? Mark 7:6 
  • Where do you hold to human tradition that does not allow the commands of God to be alive within you? Mark 7:8 
  • What do you despise in another? Could it be that which you despise is also the inner shadow Jesus desires to acknowledge and take control of? Mark 7:21-23

Jeff these are awesome! Funny you minteon that about that building - I've seen lots of historic Springfield pics, and if were transported back 100 years, I think I'd be lost! It's amazing how much a city changes over the years, and what comes and goes...I was out and about a little, and was thinking about making some pics, but my camera may not be as weather-proof as yours so I decided not to - I knew you would be though, so I'm glad you posted em!
