OUTLOUD

May/11/2011

 

 

Parents,

Basically, I did the best job that I could to communicate the doctrine of Justification to the youth.  I believe that as the youth gain a better understanding of what it means to be a Christian, it will help them to live their faith OUTLOUD.  Take some time with your student to review some of the scriptures and these questions will help you to discuss and hopefully understand what it means to be justified by God.  What an incredible study!

 

 

 

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Ephesians 2:8-9

 

  • Have you ever had to pay a ticket or a fine?
    • What would it have been like if you did not have to pay that?
    • How should the fact that Jesus paid the penalty for your sin affect the way you live?

 

“those he called, he also justified.”

Romans 8:30

 

  • Do you find it easy or difficult to believe that God could declare you “not guilty” forever in His sight?
  • Do you think that there is anything that you can “do” to be justified?
  • How should this “status change” affect the way you live?

 

“Know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law no one will be justified.”

Galatians 2:16

 

  • Do you find yourself trying to gain God’s love at times by your own works?
  • Are there times where you feel guilty and ashamed of the things that you have done in the past?
  • What would it take for you to truly accept that you are “justified?”

 

“Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.”

Romans 3:20

 

  • Have you ever wondered if God is still punishing you because of sins that you have done in the past?
  • How does the doctrine of justification help you deal with those feelings?
