Day 12: God of the Impossible (6:30-56)

Discussion Questions

(1) How often are we guilty of a limited human perspective when we approach God? Do we believe He is truly bound to human limitations? If not, why do we doubt so often?  (pg. 49)

(2) Reflecting on “Digging In” and the doubt of the disciples when Jesus performed great miracles and wonders, why do we still doubt God’s ability/desire to perform the miraculous? Do we have a belief in a small god?

(3) How have you seen God move in an earthly and impossible way?

(4) How has Jesus passed by in your impossible situation?

    I never understood why Mark said Jesus intended to pass by the disciples as He walked on the water. I wondered if maybe He was just strolling along trying to continue His time alone with the Father. But I love our Pastor’s explanation that He was “passing by” as their God similar to how God “passed by” Moses in the cleft of the rock. In Jesus, we can truly see God for Who He is. He is God of compassion, of the impossible, and so much more!

    I’ve seen God do impossible things in my life and I’m continuing to trust Him to do the impossible. But like the disciples I can see Him feed 5000 and then not even believe it is Him walking on water. We will strive but never truly grasp the immensity of Jesus’ power over everything.

    Today’s reading shows Jesus and some neat miracles. Feeding 5000- What little I have to offer, Jesus can take and make much of it. Little is much when God is in it.
    Walks on Water- here I observe the Creator is over His creation–even defying the impossible task of walking on water.
    Heals the sick- just touching the fringe of his garment made the sick well– Jesus is drawn to my helplessness and wants to do a work in my life to bring glory to Himself.
