Today's Teen Tuesday is about Faith, and is written by my daughter. This is a continuation of the Teen Girls Day we had at our church building. But, these lessons are appropriate for boys and girls.
Faith seems like one of the topics that become easier to understand as you get older. Is the idea of faith really that difficult? Probably not for most, however most of us do not experience faith building life events at a young age. When I was in high school trusting God to get me an A on a test was my perception of faith. When I got my test back and earned that A, I wiped the sweat off my brow and was thankful.
Now that I am older, I have come to realize I may have greatly misunderstood faith and I do not think it is uncommon for teenagers to not have a true grasp on what it is. With that being said, I knew I wanted to teach on faith at our Teen Girls Day.
In the faith lesson students will reflect on what faith is and hear a faith building story from their teacher.
The students will also engage in a class discussion about different ways the Bible describes faith.
The lesson plan also includes an activity and demonstration portion to make sure the teenagers remember what faith is.
One of my favorite Bible verses on faith is Matthew 17:20- So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” Let’s teach our teenagers to have this kind of faith.
