Embracing The Life

Of A Christ-Follower

Week 16 (July 31, 2022)


Dear Parents,

Hello! We’re continuing our study of The LIFE and what it means to follow God in discipleship. This week’s lesson was an opportunity to see how we can follow the example of Jesus with our own lives. This week the lesson was entitled “Practicing Humility,” and it focused on helping students see that as followers of Christ living Gospel-centered lives, we must be people of humility.

We looked at the following Scripture passages:

  • Matthew 18:1-4
  • Philippians 2:3-9

 

These passages talk about how Jesus expects us to view the Kingdom of God and our place in it. Just as Jesus demonstrated humility on the cross, we need to look around and identify real ways that we can put the needs of others above our own.

 

I’m praying that God will show us real ways to practice humility this week!

 

Next Steps . . .

During the next week as you have time to talk with your teenager, remember that one way that will help him or her understand and apply what he or she has learned is to explain it to someone else. Use the following questions to guide your conversation:

  • What does it mean to be humble? (Look at Philippians 2:3-4 for some help.)
  • Who are the six people that you wrote down on Sunday? How can I pray for them?
  • In which area of your life (home, school/work, or play) is it most difficult for you to practice humility? (Parents, please share from your own life for this question; help your child see your faith.)

Thank you for all that you do. If you have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to call me.
