August 29/30, 2015

We’re at the end of the Grow Up series this week. Week four is all about how, in tough times, God can actually help our faith grow more than ever before. This week will provide students a great perspective through which they can view their past experiences and future circumstances.

GROW UP — Week 4

Session Three: Big Moments

Bible: John 11:1-44

Bottom Line: God can use tough times to grow our faith (and others’).

 

Summary: Nobody wants to experience tough times. We don’t hope for them and we sure don’t sign up for them, but difficult circumstances happen to everyone.

Maybe for you it was the death of a family member. Or maybe it was a divorce. No matter what the cause, two things are true about our most difficult situations: They have the power to causeus great pain and they have the power to grow our faith like nothing else.

Through the story of one of Jesus’ close friends, Lazarus, we find that when tough times hit, it can stretch the faith of anyone, even those who know Jesus the best.

And if we’re willing to stay close to Him we may just find that we can emerge on the other side of the storm with a faith that is even stronger than before and an opportunity
to help others do the same.
