ABOUT THIS FREEBIE:
Devo Pack Title: The New Heart: Living Bold Lives For Christ
In Psalm 51:10-13, David wrote:
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will turn back to you.
Your students want their lives to be bold testimonies to the presence Christ makes within them. Yet, their struggle with sin and apathy gets in the way of this desire. How do you help students get to the place where they can follow through with living a life that is a testimony to God?
This free series of devotions helps students understand that they can never live lives of purpose under their own power; the ability to resist sin can only happen with God's power in us. By focusing on Psalm 51, these devotions will help students understand that “rule following” can't be their motivation for living as Christ-followers; they must live out of a joy and love for Christ and His ways. These devotions will challenge them to do just that.
Devo Overviews: The following are the purpose statements from each of the three devotions:
- Devotion 1: Dealing With Sin: We can't fight it on our own
- Devotion 2: Discovering Our Joy: Our hearts must be gripped by God's love for us
- Devotion 3: Defining Our Motivation: God wants our heart, not our ritual
- Pass them out at your next youth gathering
- Consider emailing them to your students and parents to encourage family devotion time
- Post them as a downloadable link on your church/youth website or group Facebook page
