If you’re one of our students, you’ve asked for it, so you’re going to get it! For the rest of you who have no clue what I’m talking about…a couple of Wednesdays ago I gave our students an option of what I would teach them on this Wednesday.
Option 1: Do a Q and A for them on eternity, the New Earth, the Heavens, and whatever else they’re wondering about.
Option 2: Walk them through how we order our sermon/lesson/messages every Wednesday night.
I really would have thought they would choose option 1. An overwhelming majority voted for option 2. I love it! How many student ministries actually WANT to hear how to formulate a sermon, point it to Christ, and then apply it to their lives. I couldn’t be more impressed with our student ministry! It has been a huge success to teach our KTL ministry how to structure a sermon from text to Christ to life. Those guys say that they get far more out of the sermons knowing the why we do what we do. I’ve had some trusted pastors in the past tell me that they’d rather their sermons be the Space Mountain ride (don’t know what’s coming next) at Disney World rather than the Jungle Cruise (on your left is an elephant, on your right is a crocodile). Well, I guess I’m going a little more Jungle Cruise this Wednesday. My prayer is that our students get more insight into the way we do our sermons, that they learn how they can teach the Bible to others, and how they can get even more out of their devotions through this.
