LIFE: Salvation 101

6 April 2010 by Jarrod Newton

Practical Ministry

What's inside?

Week 1: The Good News. We know we're saved, but has the good news lost its shine?

Week 2: Jesus + Nothing. Salvation is a free gift, but how do we understand that gift in a culture where nothing is ever free?

Week 3: The Rescue Story. Every rescue has 3 parts - the FROM, the BY, and the TO. As Christians, do we understand all 3?

Week 4: Putting Sin In Its Place. We know sin was a problem before we met Jesus. But what about now?

Week 5: My Rescue Story. Your group spends a night writing and then sharing their personal testimonies.

Salvation 101

This 5-week series is designed to help your life group wrestle with what it actually means to be 'saved'.

For some young (and old!) Christians, their salvation boils down to a simple transaction: I put my faith in Jesus, and in response he guarantees me a ticket to heaven.

But the heart of the Gospel isn't a supernatural business deal -- it's a supernatural rescue story!

Use this series to help your group unpack their own salvation and firmly establish the remarkable truth about their own personal rescue story.

As always, this youth discipleship resource is available right here as a free download.
