Does God Think That You Are a Christlike Young Person?

September 12, 2011

A number of years ago, I taught a series of Sunday school classes for teens that focused on Luke 2:39-52. Based on what we learned about Jesus from that passage, I challenged each teen to evaluate himself with the following questions to assess the degree to which he was a Christlike young person.

 

Does God think that you are a young person who . . .

1.      has a very strong interest in learning more about the things of God?

1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     9    10 

2.      really likes to be around spiritually minded people who know more about

the Bible than you do? 

1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     9    10 

3.      listens attentively and eagerly when talking with those people? 

1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     9    10

God and the Bible?
