Last week we wrapped up our three-week look at God’s thoughts on sex. We concluded by looking at Colossians 2:13-15. We discussed how sin in our lives is like a tumor that grows inside, and how God’s grace removes it when we seek his unconditional forgiveness. We also looked at how God loves us enough to forgive us and even to forget our past mistakes. The students were encouraged to realize that God has forgiven them, and as a result can stop being enslaved to their past sins. Instead, they can and should experience the freedom that is given to them as a follower of Christ.
This week, I’d encourage you to take time to talk with your teenager about the power of God’s forgiveness. Here are some possible questions:
- How can we better practice forgiveness in our family?
- You were talking about God’s forgiveness in your small group; is it OK if we willingly go and sin because God is going to forgive us? Why or why not?
- How might you share the good news of forgiveness with your friends?
I pray your family is having a blessed week. Thanks for your love for your teenager and your support for our small group ministry!
