A FAITH OF MY OWN Lesson 2: Step up, Step out
We’re continuing our series called “A Faith of My Own,” as students learn how to nurture a faith that lasts. We’re focusing on how Jesus wants to have a personal relationship with each of us and help us grow in our faith.
In the second lesson, we looked at 2 Timothy 3:14-17, where Paul encourages his student Timothy—and us—to hold fast to true knowledge. Students learned they can acquire trustworthy knowledge from the Bible, as well as from fellow Christians. When young people put this knowledge into action, real growth takes place.
I hope you’ll find some time this week to talk with your teenager about the lesson. Consider using these questions as discussion starters:
- How can you tell whether information is true or false? Which sources seem the most reliable to you, and why?
- What are some ways I can help you know more about Jesus and the Bible?
- What are some ways to put that knowledge to “work” as you follow Jesus in the days and years ahead?
- Who are some people you can ask about their faith journey? What questions do you have for them?
- Think of three adjectives that describe your faith journey as it is right now. Then think of three adjectives that describe the faith you’d like to develop. How can you develop those in your life? How can I help you develop them?
Thanks for all you do as a parent. Have a great week!
