We’re three weeks into our series focusing on questions Jesus asked in the Gospels. Each week, our students are examining a different passage of Scripture to discover the backstory behind some of those questions.
In this third lesson, we explored Mark 10:46-52, where Jesus met Bartimaeus, a blind man who called out for Jesus to heal him. The interesting point of this interaction is not that Jesus healed him, but the question Jesus asked him right before he did it. “What do you want me to do for you?” is not a question that we often associate with our relationship with Jesus. Sometimes we get stuck thinking that our faith journey is all about what we should be doing for God. This week we discussed how Jesus wants to do something for us—we just need to ask.
This week, take some time to talk with your teenager about our lesson. Here are some questions you might want to ask:
We’ve wrapped up our series called “God Is.” Each week, we looked at important characteristics of God and discussed how these traits invite us to know and love God more. Our teenagers talked about how these traits impact their relationship with Jesus.
In this final lesson, we explored Revelation 1:1-8, the opening verses of the book written by the Apostle John. John wrote down what he saw in a vision from Jesus, and these verses reveal how God is both timeless and present. Our world is always changing. But God never changes—he’s a constant that has always been, is relevant today, and always will be. God was in the past, is in the present, and will be in the future.
Take some time to continue this conversation with your teenager. Consider using these questions to get you started:
