Hi.

We hope you are all keeping well, staying safe and enjoying more time with your families over this period.
Unfortunately we can’t meet in person but this week we have some resources that you can go through either with your parents or others from your group over Whatsapp or other social media sites you may use.

Watch the video below either on your own or with your parents:

 

Love Nehemie and the Youth team

Ask yourself these questions:

Who do you put your trust in?

Do you put your trust in different people for different things?

Why is this?

Main Bible Verse: Matthew 8:5-13

In the story, a Roman Centurion trusts in Jesus, so much so that he believed that if Jesus just said his servant would be healed, that would happen!!

‘But just say the word, and my servant will be healed.’

Discuss or think:

How could the centurion put his trust in Jesus?

How does this compare to disciples and how they reacted to the storm when Jesus fell asleep in the boat?

How do you think some people today, even Christians may react to the news and effects of coronavirus with what is portrayed on the daily news?

Although what is happening at the moment can be scary or concerning and you may already know someone who has been affected by COVID-19, we can still put our trust in God.

Look at some of these verses with your parents or carers which tell us why we can put our trust in him and why we shouldn’t be fearful in times like this

Psalm 9:10

Joshua 1:9

Isaiah 41:10

Psalm 46:1

Philippians 4:6-7

Prayer:

Dear God,

It’s Your name that is honoured. You alone deserve to be worshipped and praised.

You are not shocked by the state of the world right now. Your ways are not our ways, and You are not at a loss about what to do. Nothing is impossible for You.

So today, we pray that you will still be lifted up in this pandemic. That your name will be known and praised throughout the Earth.

Pierce the darkness with Your light. Shine brighter than the fear of death, economic ruin or a long quarantine.

When we look back on this moment in history, would we be filled with joy as we remember the revival, hope, and peace that came out of this season.

Continue to draw this hurting world back to You,

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
