Sunday School in Matthew pictures Jesus preparing his disciples for the future that were there with him. I trust that the Lord is also making disciples out of teenagers as we share His Word!
Week 1: Chapter 10:26-42 I remember applying for a job one time and having the worst details about the job pointed out to me. The reason for this was so that I wouldn’t quit or get dicouraged through the tough weeks and months. Jesus is preparing his servants and witnesses to be faithful during tough seasons of our spiritual lives so we don’t quit. A great lesson to teach us to overcome our fears!
Week 2: Chapter 11 Jesus did what he commanded his disciples to do. John the Baptist successfully accomplished what the Lord commanded him to do. What great examples we have to model our christian life. the secret to our success in the christian life was found in the last three verses where Jesus says : COME UNTO ME, ALL YE THAT LABOUR AND ARE HEAVY LADEN, AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST. TAKE MY YOKE UPON YOU, AND LEARN OF ME; FOR I AM MEEK AND LOWLY IN HEART: AND YE SHALL FIND REST UNTO YOUR SOULS. FOR MY YOKE IS EASY, AND MY BURDEN IS LIGHT.
Week 3: Chapter 12:1-21 Jesus answered his persecutors with the Word of God. As we serve the Lord, we will have accusations, criticism, and lies spoken against us. By knowing the bible we can properly respond and continue on in our service to God without being sidetracked just as Christ did.
Week 4: Chapter 12: 22-50 Again, biblical knowledge will give you a bold response to those that would try to detour your devotion to the Lord. Jesus rebuked the pharisees and then reminded them judgment is coming. What a wonderful peace we have in Christ to be in the family of God instead of being a foe of God!
It’s good to have fun activities for the teens every month, but for June their activities were for others. They worked hard in a fundraiser for a very special need and they met the need. Great job. during Vacation Bible School they served as leaders teaching bible verses, helping with game, assisting with crafts, etc.. They put others before themselves and did it willingly. I am blessed to share ministry work with a fantastic group of teenagers!
