As such, it shouldn’t be much of a stretch for us to understand how concerning it would be for a group of professing Christians to not know what the Gospel is. Sadly, in my years of experience of student ministry here in Elberton, the vast majority of professing Christian students cannot share a complete Gospel message when asked to give one. This is deeply concerning! The Bible teaches that the message of the Gospel is the only way that people can be saved. The Bible also commands that those who belong to Christ should share the Gospel message with others that they might be saved.
How can our people be saved if they don’t know what the Gospel message is? More so, how can our people share the Gospel with others if they don’t even know what it is?
Hopefully you see the great need for our students to understand this passage of scripture! We’ll not only challenge our students to understand the Gospel and share it with others, but we’ll also be giving a Gospel presentation tonight so that any present student who may not be saved can hear the Gospel (and hopefully respond in faith!!!).
Below are some questions that you can ask your student this week to “keep the conversation going”. This is a simple and easy way that you, the parent, can help to disciple your students throughout the week in accord with what they’re being taught from God’s Word.
- What is the Gospel? *See if your students can give you a correct answer to this. All saved people should know this! We must know this in order to share it with others.
- Do you think that all of your friends (at school or in the community) know this same Gospel message? Why or why not? (A: Discuss)
- How urgent should it be for us to share the Gospel with people around us? Why?(A: Very! *We are not promised tomorrow)
- When the Apostle Paul got saved, his life completely transformed. What is different about your life from when you weren’t a Christian to who you are now? (A: Discuss)
