How Do I Know If God Is Happy With Me? [Mark 10:13-31]

Curious if God is happy with you? Learn why it’s impossible to earn God’s love in this week’s episode.

Main Ideas:
[00:47] We usually gauge God’s happiness with us on how well we think our lives are going.
[02:26] What we have and what happens to us isn’t a measure of God’s approval of us.
[04:50] The Kingdom of God doesn’t look or work like we expect.
[06:16] We don’t have to impress or flatter God.
[08:14] The Kingdom of God is not about earning. It’s about accepting and receiving.
[10:19] We can follow the rules and still not be following Jesus.
[11:39] Instead of signifying God’s acceptance, wealth is actually a hindrance to entering the Kingdom of God.
[15:12] God’s acceptance doesn’t depend on us.
[16:24] We are accepted because we are already loved. Not because we have earned it.
[18:46] The Kingdom of God belongs to those who accept Jesus’ unearned, underserved, and unending love.

[16:36] Read Titus 3 vv.4-7
[17:09] Ask, “In what way(s) am I trying to impress or flatter God?”
[18:01] Stop trying so hard and choose to accept Jesus’ free gift of love.

Discussion Questions:
1. Why do you think we usually gauge God’s happiness with us based on our life’s circumstances? Have you felt or experienced this before?

2. Read Titus 3:4-7. What words or thoughts stand out to you?

3. We don’t need to flatter or impress God. How could this idea influence our relationships and interactions with others?

4. What are some practical ways we can stop trying so hard and simply accept God’s love?

5. How can your group pray with you this week?
