Purpose: This unit will help the youth understand and accept the statement, "Jesus Christ is my Savior and Lord."
Session 1: Jesus is my Savior
The youth will examine salvation as explained in Luke 19:1-10 and Jesus' role in their salvation. They will recognize their need for salvation and will begin to understand the meaning of Jesus' life, ministry, and death as God's saving act.
Session 2: Lord of What?
The youth will discover the meaning of Jesus as Lord. They will explore what the term Lord meant for the people of Jesus' day and for the early church as well as how the word Lord describes their own response to Jesus' authority.
Session 3: Live as Christ
Accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord means accepting a call to follow his example. In this session, the youth will be encouraged to allow Jesus to live through them as they become servants and witnesses of his gracious love.
