August 9 THE SACRIFICE Throughout all the ages, God has asked men to offer sacrifices for sin. In Christ, God himself offers up His Son Jesus upon a cross as a sacrifice. His body and blood were given so that we might be right with God.
August 2 WHY JESUS DIED Jesus died on the cross for many reasons, but His focus was to bring us to the Father. He who knew no sin was made to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
JULY 26 A FRIEND TO JESUS Everyone needs friends. The best friend you’ll ever have is Jesus Christ. Jesus knows what it means to sacrifice himself out of love for His friends, and the Lord Jesus wants to have you as one of His friends.
JULY 19 CHRIST IS OUR HOPE When life fills with doubts and darkness, we look to Christ for our hope. Just as clouds can darken but not remove the sun, so life’s troubles can darken our lives but not remove the source of all blessings! Let’s hope in Christ, our Lord and our Savior!
JULY 12 PREPARE YOUR HEART The future is always approaching faster than we imagine for our children. We must be a generation that prepares our own hearts and the hearts of our children to serve the Lord and not be fooled by the ways of the world.
JULY 5 ONLY ONE LIFE You have only one life; what are you doing with it? Some use their lives to make a difference in this world, while others are only chasing after a wind. In this lesson, we’re going to see how we can make our lives matter.
JUNE 28 IS GOD ACTIVE TODAY? Some think God is absent in our world today; others say God is dead. The Bible teaches God is indeed alive and active in the world today and is working for our good. We can be thankful to have a God who cares for us.
JUNE 21 BECAUSE OF JESUS Because of Jesus, our lives have taken a new direction, filled with hope. Because of Jesus we have so many blessings. How thankful we should all be for working for our good. We can be thankful to have a God who cares for us.
JUNE 14 A SERVANT’S HEART I love the song many young people sing, which begins, “Give me the heart of a servant.” While many want to live for their own pleasure and love calling the shots, Jesus chose the heart of a servant. We too need the heart of a servant.
JUNE 7 WHO IS YOUR LORD? Jesus once asked His disciples, “Who do you say I am?” Faith in Christ is an individual matter. Each must decide for himself whether he will follow the Lord and His teaching. Jesus is Lord, and we must set Him apart as Lord in our lives.
