Harvest Youth Online - Week 5
by Cristina Martin on Saturday, 16th May 2020
Hope you guys had a great weekend and enjoyed this week’s church service online. It was so awesome to see you all reading to us, thanks so much for taking the time to make all those videos! Hope you were all as encouraged as we were. Seeing you on the screen sharing with the whole church was cool, we are all part of a bigger church family and you guys are a pretty awesome part of it. Last week we spent some time in Genesis being reminded that we are all made in God’s image. We’ll be spending some more time in Genesis this week with a study titled ‘I am in trouble.’ Intrigued? Keep reading to find out some more about it.
A little intro from Karl on this study:
“This week's message and small group time are all about the fall of mankind into sin. We were created in a perfect relationship with God, but MANKIND BELIEVED A LIE and sin entered into humanity. By being human we inherit sin, but also continually sin ourselves. Sin, then, is our greatest problem to be fixed because it otherwise leaves us separated from God eternally. The Big idea for this week is I AM IN TROUBLE. We are in trouble because of lies: the lie that cursed humanity at the beginning, and the lies that that we continually keep believing and act upon, all to our own detriment. The sooner we recognize our situation and problem, the sooner we can see through the lies. When we stop doubting the truth, we stop believing lies!”
Before Thursday, take some time to read through Genesis 3 and watch this week’s video message:
Also, JUST FOR FUN, everyone needs to CREATE something to show off on Thursday (cookies, painting, wooden rocking chair, poem, song, clean room lol... do something). Can't wait to see your creations!
1. How do we believe the lies of the evil one and go against God’s command? What lies do you believe
2. What do you do to guard yourself against the attacks of the evil one?
3. Disobedience to God’s commands is what makes our actions sin. How do you currently treat God’s commands? What needs to change?
4. How does it make you feel or think differently knowing that sin separates us from Holy perfect God? How has sin hurt you?
5. The last point of the message was about the consequences of sin. How often do you think about the seriousness of sin and why not more? How does (or how should) a better understanding of your own sin change both how you view Jesus and seek to live for Him?
