Alive Update: God's Glory Through Us

Last night was the last lesson of our study on God’s glory. Entitled “Glory To God Through Us.” The point of the lesson was that our students would understand that God is given glory as they live out their everyday lives, especially during tough times, and that they would accept the challenge to be more identified with Christ through their daily actions and interactions.

We looked at the following Scripture passages:

• 1 Corinthians 10:31-33
• 1 Peter 1:3-7
• 2 Corinthians 4:7-15

You’ll enjoy reading these passages and how we can reflect God’s glory through our actions. Next Steps . . .

During the next week as you have time to talk with your teen, consider asking the following questions:

• So, here’s an interesting thought: we can’t add to God’s glory. He is glorified because of how amazingly awesome He is. So, why should we still seek to bring honor and respect to Him through our lives? (There’s no right answer here. Just something to get you thinking!)

• Have you ever thought about the fact that you rarely have a neutral affect on how people see God? People know you’re a Christ-follower. Your actions (and mine) almost always say something about how important God is to us. We can either show that He’s important, or not very. How does this change the way we should see our actions?

• Are there areas of our family’s life where we could be doing more to draw people to God? How might we move toward being more intentional about bringing glory to God?

As always, don’t ever hesitate to call me if you need anything. It’s a real privilege to partner with you in leading your teenager closer to Christ.
