Known by His Work
Hello Again! We have begun our three-week series on ‘Knowing God’. This week’s lesson was a great discussion. I hope your teenager enjoyed it!
This week, the lesson focused on helping students understand that in the Old Testament, God’s people learned about Him through stories of His past work in the life of His people, and His work in
the world through them in the present; and to move beyond merely knowing about what God has done in other people’s lives, and to truly know God for themselves by seeing Him at work in their lives today.
We looked at the following scripture passages:
• Exodus 29:45-46
• Deuteronomy 4:32-35 • Joshua 4:20-24
• 1 Samuel 17:46-47
• 1 Kings 18:36-37
• 2 Kings 19:15-19
You’ll enjoy reading these powerful passages that show God’s work of making Himself known to and through His people.
During the next week as you have time to talk with your teenager, consider asking the following questions:
- Say: You talked about knowing God in this week’s lesson. What do you think it means to know God?
- In this week’s lesson, we heard Moses share with God’s people stories of the great things that God had done for them. Take some time this week to share with your teenager how God has worked in your life and family.
- This week’s lesson focused on having your own experience with God rather than just living off of one’s parent’s faith. Help your teenager wrestle with the question: Have I personally experienced God, or am I simply living off of my parents’ faith?
As always, if you have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to message me.
