Who am I?

Dear parents,

Our students are continuing through their series on three big questions that we must ask as we journey toward greater freedom in Christ. This week we wrestled with the big question of “Who am I?” We talked about our immeasurable value to God and how our faith in Jesus gives us the undeserved privilege of experiencing God’s goodness. We talked about the meaning of salvation and how we all need the rescuing power of Jesus in our lives. We also talked about how all followers of Jesus receive spiritual gifts from God to use for his glory.

I encourage you to keep the conversation going at home this week. Here are some questions you might want to ask:

  • Tell me about this big question “Who am I?” that you talked about this week. What big ideas really impacted you?
  • If you believe that you truly matter to God, how will that change you? your priorities? your daily activities?
  • What does it mean that we are “God’s masterpiece”? Why don’t we always feel like God’s masterpiece?
  • Read Ephesian 2:8-10, Tell them about how you serve others. Ask your student: What good works do you think you were created for? How can you serve others in church? Outside of Church?

This Weeks Challenge:

Read Ephesians 2:8-10. What does these verse say about you? What are some specific ways you think or know God has gifted you? How might those gifts benefit other people? Is there an area in church or outside of church you would like to look into serving? 

In continuing with our challenge to know God more here are some verses to read throughout the week. The specifically talk about who we are in Christ. Romans 8:31-39; Colossians 3:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Colossians 1:13-14; 2 Timothy 1:7; Philippians 1:6; Colossians 2:9-10.

Memory Verse:

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago” (Ephesians 2:10).

Have a spectacular week!
