The Gospel-Centered Life For Teens Leader's Guide

Techie? Jock? Class Clown? You Can t Build a Life on a Label. Something or someone will always try to define you. Maybe others call you the techie, the jock, the class clown, or the smart kid. It s easy to think that those labels sum up who you really are, express what really matters in your life, and define the things you should pursue. But your identity goes far deeper than the positive or even the negative labels people use to define you. There is something at the core of a satisfying and meaningful life that can t be summed up by any label. The Gospel-Centered Life for Teens offers you the chance to center your life on the only thing in the universe that actually has the power to define you, give your life meaning, and shape how you live each day. This 9-lesson Bible study, adapted from The Gospel-Centered Life by Bob Thune and Will Walker, gives teens and young adults a road map for living a life centered on God and the gospel. Each lesson is self-contained, featuring clear teaching from Scripture, and requires no extra work outside the group setting.

The Gospel-Centered Life for Teens - Leader's Guide is a new release from New Growth Press and Serge that adapts the previously released Gospel-Centered Life to an age appropriate level for teens. The goal of the Gospel-Centered Life for Teens is to "help young adults understand how the gospel shapes every aspect of life and conduct. Colossians 1:6 says that the gospel is 'continually bearing fruit and increasing' in and among us, even after we first believe it. How does that happen? Why is a continual rediscovery and application of the gospel so important? How will our personal growth and missional life be stunted if we don't grasp the gospel deeply? These are the questions that GCL for Teens seeks to answer."These questions are answered over the course of nine lessons. These lessons cover areas like: the gospel, a lack of understanding of what Christ has done that leads to lawlessness, a lack of understanding for what Christ has done that leads to legalism, the relationship between law & gospel, biblical repentance, idolatry, being on mission, what is forgiveness and how to handle conflict. Each lesson begins with a section titled Big Idea that serves as the thesis statement for the lesson. The Article (lesson) then covers around 4-6 pages that expounds on the Big Idea. The lesson then closes with an Exercise section that brings out the practical application. I found these lessons to be very practical and thought provoking. I can certainly see where they would be very beneficial in working with teens. Each lesson's Article section really adapts The Gospel-Centered Life message for teens. Examples are given that they will be able to relate to.
