Lesson Objective: To help your students see that they are a "new person" in Christ, and commit to embracing God's call to righteousness and holiness.
Scripture Focus: Ephesians 4:17-24
Overview: The world your students exist in each day communicates a message that is counter to their faith. In the midst of this world, your students have the power to make a profound statement about Christ's presence in their lives through their actions and attitudes. In Ephesians, Paul helps us understand that we have been given a “new self,” through our faith in Christ. This “new self” is “created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” This is the power teenagers have to impact their world! They literally have the power of God compelling them to live lives of righteousness and holiness. Considering the culture in which teenagers must live every day, this is one of the most powerful tools they have to show people the difference Christ can make in an individual's life.
