Embracing the Life of a Christ-Follower

Week 03 (May 1, 2022)

Dear Parents,

Hello! We’re continuing our study called The Life, a study all about discipleship and following God. This week’s lesson was an opportunity for us to look throughout all of Scripture at how God wants us to follow Him.

This week the lesson was entitled “Discipleship Was Always God’s Plan,” and it focused on helping students see that even in the Old Testament, God was calling people to be in a relationship with Him.

We looked at the following Scripture passages: 

  • Genesis 12:1-3
  • Deuteronomy 7:6-8
  • Ephesians 2:13-16
  • Colossians 3:11

These passages not only point out those God was calling into a relationship with Himself, but also the calling He had for their lives to show others who He was.

I’m praying for all of you as you lead your families and follow Jesus yourself.

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:

  • God had a calling for Abraham and for Israel. What is His calling for us?
  • Is there anyone you know who is a Christian but they’re hard to deal with? Perhaps someone you are different from or don’t like hanging out with? How can you follow God together in unity?
  • What can I do to help you follow God wherever He calls you? Is He calling you to do anything that is scary to you? Remember – I’m following God, too!

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