ABOUT THIS FREEBIE:
What You Get: 1 free lesson to demo our Jesus and Stuff four-lesson Bible study
Our culture puts a tremendous value on having stuff. And not just on having stuff, but being emotionally attached to our stuff. This message is played out in so many different aspects of our lives. We’re told a certain car will make us happy. A certain brand will make us cool. A certain gadget will make us fulfilled. And so many of us buy into these messages wholeheartedly. Especially our teenagers. Good thing Jesus had a lot to say about this.
Teach Jesus and Stuff to help students embrace a Christ-centered attitude toward their stuff.
Jesus and Stuff LESSON OVERVIEWS:
Lesson 1: Where's Your Treasure?
(This is the free demo lesson below)
Objective:Students will learn that Jesus said it’s impossible to both love our stuff and truly love God; and will be challenged to grasp that their stuff is fleeting; only the impact they have for God will go with them to heaven.
Lesson 2: Follow Me, But Leave Your Stuff
Objective: Students will learn that if our love for our stuff comes between our devotion to God, we’re doing it all wrong; and will be challenged to honestly evaluate whether or not their love for their stuff competes with their devotion to Christ.
Lesson 3: Less Is More
Objective: Students will learn that no matter how much stuff we have, it doesn’t add any real meaning to our life; and will be challenged to accept the challenge to see what stuff they can do without and consider donating it to someone who is needy.
Lesson 4: God's Stuff, Not Ours
Objective: Students will learn that we have to learn to see our stuff as God’s, not ours, to be used as He sees fit; and will be challenged to commit to viewing all their possessions with a spirit of sacrifice, understanding that we only have what we have because God chose to give it to them.
