There was a time when people understood what a “godly life” looked like. It was understood because it was integrated into the culture. One could not help but know what it took to live a godly life, because living a godly life was the norm. In our world today, society and culture have shattered the clear vision of a godly life into thousands of pieces. In this lesson series, we will attempt to put the pieces back together.
We will begin with the simple fact that we, as children of God, are considered masterpieces. God has a plan for each of us that we should be seeking, and the time to work that plan is now. While there is much of God’s plan for an individual that is unique to them, there are so many things that are expected of every believer.
God expects each believer to be a contributing member of their family, of a local church, and of society. He also expects us to live inside the guidelines of His word in our relationships. Finally, He expects each of us to make the most lasting difference – leading someone to salvation.
These pieces, when placed in the correct order, will form the most beautiful masterpiece, the picture of life God intended for His children all along. Each lesson will end with some form of commitment. Allowing the students to make these commitments public in a church service is a great idea. After each, the leader should keep the commitment sheets in a manila envelope. Assuring the students of privacy will encourage participation. Before the Church service, explain clearly that the students have the opportunity to make these commitments public. The family letter and relationship commitment can be given to parents, and the Church letter, Doctrinal Statement, and witnessing commitments can be given to the youth pastor or pastor. Make this a special and memorable ceremony.
