Countryside Christian Church
God Box - Week Four: Killjoy God
It can be difficult to believe in a God we cannot see. We wonder why God didn’t answer our prayers, why God allows suffering, or why we can’t feel His presence. God may not meet all your expectations, but that’s good news! Find out why in our series called GodBox.

“It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures... making mud pies in a slum because [we] cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” ~C.S. Lewis
The highest pleasures are an acquired taste.
Religion is about what we do to earn favor with God.
New life in Jesus is about what Christ has done to give favor to us.
Think about this week:
Have you longed for something “more” before you met Jesus? Think about times in your life when sin just didn’t satisfy you.
Think about this week:
Read Romans 3:20. In what ways do some people try to follow the rules to try to earn God’s favor?
Think about this week:
How do you think it makes God feel when we try to earn what He has already freely given us?
Think about this week:
Is it more pleasurable to try to obey God in order to earn a reward or to obey God because we love Him? What does each kind of life look like?
