“Recognizing Grace”

The concept of grace, like the concept of love, is often difficult for youth to truly comprehend. This unit deals with God’s grace in our lives, and how Christians can receive and share this grace with others.

Session One utilizes the Scriptures “most quotable” verse to consider the opposite poles of grace and judgement, salvation, and condemnation. How does Jesus provide the possiblity for both of these extreme effects?

Session Two examines the miracle of Lazarus’s resuscitation and challenges youth to consider the difference between confession and belief. Ask youth, “What will it take for you to believe?” and “What has God done in order for you to believe?”

Session Three sets the stage for John the Baptist. Proof of belief is the theme as you ask youth to consider how they believe, and, more importantly, how they show their faith to the world.

Session Four shows Mary’s faithful presence at the empty tomb and her commitment to go and tell. We must ask “How are we to carry out Jesus’ mission?” Youth are asked what it means to have Jesus call their name, as he did Mary’s, and how they will respond to the common calling offered to all of us.
