I’m So Confused

Week 1 – Go Against the Flow

January 14th

 

 

 

 

Main Thing …

If you are ready for an earful from a teenager, just ask them the question: “What is on your mind?” The truth is that you will likely get a long list of things because there are so many things going on in the mind of a teenager, and the end result of that conversation might be … “I’m so confused.” God teaches us that if we fix our mind on the truth found in scripture that we would be able to navigate through the confusion. We will be studying the scripture and why it is important, and why it is so critical to our daily pursuit of God.

Scratch the Surface…

  • High’s and lows
  • How was the holiday?
  • New Year’s resolution/goals?

Dig a Little Deeper…

  • Have you ever seen salmon swimming upstream?
  • What are some of the biblical standards that “go against the flow” of society?
  • Just like the intro video tonight … What is on your mind?
  • Romans 12:2 What is the difference between “transform and conform?”
  • Why do you think personal time with God each day is important?
  • Talk this through …
    • “Personal time with God is super simple but super difficult”

Personal…

  • You could talk about your own journey of your personal time with God
  • You could share how you spend time with God

Applications…

  • Pray with your group
  • Are there any of you who want to make this a part of your daily routine?

Key Scriptures and thoughts…

Romans 12:2

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

These people set and example by going against the flow

  • Moses – Led Israel out of Egypt
  • SMA – Everyone bowed down, they didn’t
  • Jesus – Everyone fighting to be in charge and Jesus washed their feet
  • David – Everyone was scared to fight Goliath, but not David
  • Noah – Everyone made fun of him, but He obeyed God and built a boat
