Deciding what God wants us to do in in our everyday lives is an important part of following Him. Knowing His voice and obeying it, is key.

  • Have you ever been confronted with a situation which forced you to decide if you should obey God or someone else? (Answers will vary; students may share something like: My friends were making some bad choices at school, and I knew God wouldn’t want me to go along with them, so I chose to obey Him, etc.)

Christians are called to obey God by loving our neighbors, but what does that mean on a practical level? Let’s take a look at how one teen shows love for his neighbor through his actions.

Play the following video [1:00; stop at 0:42]:
Teen Uses Trampoline To Save Neighbors From Apartment Fire

  • How did the teen in the video show love? (He looked out for others’ needs, he entered a potentially dangerous situation to save his neighbors, etc.)

Although most of us won’t love our neighbors by saving them from a fire, we do have daily opportunities to obey God and love the people around us.

What are some everyday ways you could show love to the people around you? (Answers might include: Showing kindness to a classmate, helping a sibling with homework, standing up for a peer who’s being bullied, offering to help your parents with extra housework, etc.)

Obeying God isn’t limited to loving our neighbors. There are many ways we can obey Him through our daily words and actions.

  • What are some other ways we can obey God? (Answers might include: Praying and seeking Him, sharing the gospel, caring for the poor, serving in the church nursery, etc.)

In today’s lesson, we’re going to see how Jesus’ disciples were up against a strong opposition to their faith. Yet, they chose to share the Gospel message with anyone and everyone they came into contact with, despite the trouble that would come from it. Let’s find out what it looks like to follow God, no matter the cost.
