Knowing about Jesus helps us clarify the facts of our faith and the new life
that Christ offers. This study will help answer teens' doubts and
questions about Jesus and Salvation, and becoming a Christian.
Facts about Jesus:
Divide the group into teams of three to five, and get them to study the
Scriptures below and complete their Study Sheets. A representative from
each team should report back their findings. Possible answers are
included for each question below.
- What do you need to ADMIT? (see Romans 3:23) - (That you have
sinned and come short of God's standards).
- If this is true, then what does this say about your relationship with
God? - (You are separated from God).
- Write down what you now BELIEVE that God has done for you (see
2 Corinthians 5:17-21 and Galatians 2:20) - God loves you and sent Jesus to
die on the cross to take the punishment for your sins.
- Write down what Jesus has done for you? - (Jesus died in your place and
took all your sins upon Himself, so that you can be forgiven and made right
- The third thing you need to do is CONSIDER what Jesus says you need
to do to follow Him? (see Mark 8:34) - (Put Jesus first in your life dispite
the problems and difficulties you face).
- What has He promised in Galatians 4:6-7? - (The Holy Spirit to guide
you, and convince you that you are now a child of God).
- What has He promised in Philippians 4:13? - (To give you all the strength
- What are you going to DO about it?
- In Revelation 3:20 Jesus says that He is knocking, but what does He require
of you? - (Open your heart and ask Jesus to come into your life).
- Can you be sure that you will be accepted by Jesus? (see John 6:37) - (Yes,
Jesus has promised to accept you).
The leader should discuss and summarise the findings and draw out conclusions
of what was learnt about Jesus Christ from the Bible, and how the teens should
respond to Him. Give an appeal and counsel any teens that respond.
Close with a prayer that God will keep and protect each person.
