Dear Parents,

Over the next six weeks, on Sunday Mornings we are going to examine the life of Jesus through the eyes of one of his disciples, John. In our first lesson, we will study John 1:1-14 and see how Jesus is eternal just like God the Father. Jesus was not only with God when the universe was created, but was and is God the Son.

You can help your student continue to grasp the truths from this week’s conversation by asking these or similar questions:

  • Have you ever tried to wrap your brain around the idea of eternity—and the truth that God has always existed and will continue to exist forever? As humans, can we even truly begin to grasp that idea?
  • John frequently used the idea of Jesus being a light to the world. In what ways is your school or our community a spiritually dark place? What are some things you could do to bring the spiritual light of Jesus to your school or our town?
  • If you were telling a friend that finding life in Christ is the best thing that has ever happened to you, how would you say and explain it?

I want to encourage you and your teenager to read the entire Gospel of John over the next few weeks, which can be done by simply reading one of its 21 chapters each day. Thanks for all your prayers for our Sunday Morning worship service. Have a great week!
