This week your student learned that following Jesus is a lifelong commitment and we all need constant encouragement to stay strong in Him. The personal challenge encouraged your student to think about times when Jesus has been faithful to them. Spend some time this week sharing with your son or daughter some times when Jesus has been faithful to you. Help them see that you lean on Jesus for strength and encouragement and that He is faithful.
CENTRAL TRUTH: Following Jesus is a lifelong commitment and we all need to constantly encourage one another to stay strong in Him.
- Dwell: Spend some time this week thinking through the times Christ has been faithful to you. Think about times of hurt and pain where His love sustained you. Also think about times of blessing where He provided for you beyond what you deserved. We need to remember the past, learn from it, and allow it to propel us into the future holding strong to the hand that is reaching out to us.
- Memorize: Hebrews 3:13
- Pray: Ask God for strength this week to not give up on what He is doing in your life and to help you to encourage those around you to do the same. Thank Jesus for being an encouragement in your life and ask Him to give you the strength to model faithfulness to your son or daughter.
