Grades 9-12 | How Would People Get Ready for Jesus?
We’re continuing our look at Old Testament prophecies about Jesus. This week, we explored Isaiah 40, where the prophet Isaiah worked to prepare people for the coming Messiah. After exploring what it takes to get ready, we looked at Mark 1, where John the Baptist fulfilled Isaiah 40.
This encouraged us to embrace a deeper, awe-filled understanding of Jesus’ identity and discuss how we can respond to him as a result
This week, try to spend a few minutes talking with your teenager about this topic. You might want to begin your conversation with these questions:
Grades 6-8 | Love. Give. Serve.
We’ve finished our three-lesson look at the book of Romans. Obviously, there is a TON more in this amazing book than we could cover in three conversations. But I hope our fly-over of this book has given our teenagers a sense of some amazing, life-changing truths.
Our final conversation focused on the importance of loving genuinely, giving generously, and serving enthusiastically. All of these can naturally flow from us when we’re following Jesus and centering our lives on him.
All three of these habits can be hard to live out, especially for a young teenager, but they’re all rewarding and help point people to Jesus.
Here are some questions that could help fuel conversation with your teenager this week:
Have a great time exploring these topics. Thanks for your prayers and support!
