Hello friends!

This week at youth group we’re going to be talking about what it means for us to “choose” God. We hear a lot about “giving our heart to Jesus” or “turning our hearts to God,” but while sayings like those have good intentions, they’re missing the most important part: God’s already chosen us by sending Jesus. Without Him, we can’t even begin to choose God.

We’ll be reading Colossians 2:13-14 and talking about what an amazing gift God has given us in the Gospel of Jesus, and how when we think we’re choosing God, He’s already chosen us.

We’ll also be watching the video below to help illustrate the idea that God has chosen us and gives us faith through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Also, our discussion will end the normal time, 8pm, but since there’s no school on Monday, your students are welcome to stay longer and hang out if they’d like.
