LIFE GROUP QUESTIONS: YOUTH TESTIMONIES

The Key Verse for Opening Night at camp was Acts 1:8
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Students learned about the power of the Holy Spirit and how the Spirit will guide them on their mission as they share Christ in their Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria. Just as the First Century believers were called to go to their own city (Jerusalem), the surrounding areas (Judea and Samaria), and to the ends of the world, so are believers today.

1. Are you able to identify personally your Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria?

2 How can you share the gospel where God has specifically placed you—not only geographically, but also in your workplace, your neighborhood, your extra-curricular activities or those of your children.

3. What in your life currently provides a witness to Jesus Christ? Do people see Jesus Christ in your speech? Your marriage? Your career? Reflect on your witness to those around you.

Another key verse for the week was Acts 9:20:
“Immediately he began proclaiming Jesus in the synagogues, ‘He is the Son of God.’”

4. You likely have accepted ‘missions’ of many kinds during your life. Can you recall a time when you accepted God’s mission?

5. What part of accepting God’s mission brings you joy and anticipation? What part of accepting His mission brings you fear and insecurity?

Additionally, the students studied Acts 20:24:
“But I consider my life of no value to myself; my purpose is to finish my course and the ministry I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of God’s grace.”

6. When is the last time in your Christian journey that you have created space to spend time discipling a young believer? If you do not feel equipped for that task, what is preventing you from asking an older believer of Jesus to meet with you for growth and discipleship?

7. What can you do today to encourage another believer on their faith journey? Make a phone call. Send a text. Write a letter. Ask God to bring someone to your mind.

8. Think of someone you know who needs to hear the message of the gospel. How are you praying for that person and seeking to share the gospel with him or her?
