Give It To Him Straight!

Tonight in Jr. & Sr. High OTTAGETTU, we’re talking about doubt in a messaged called “Give It To Him Straight!” Tonight we’ll discuss what to do when we experience doubts about our faith. We’ll tell our students that God isn’t afraid of our doubts. We simply need to think about how we react & respond to our doubts & struggles.

In this message, we’ll talk about the story from Mark 9 when a father whose son needed to be healed comes to Jesus &, in the course of their conversation, says, “Lord, I believe! Help me with my unbelief.” We talked about the importance of not hiding our doubt, going to Jesus when we experience doubt, & learning more to help overcome our doubt. 

I’d encourage you to find time this week to talk with your teenager about our discussion. Here are some questions you might want to use:
  • If you could text one question to God, what would you ask, & why?
  • Where do you go or what people do you talk to when you have questions about what it means to be a Christian-or other big questions?
  • How do you think God feels about our doubts? Do you think it’s OK for Christians to doubt? 
If I can offer any help as you & your teenager have these conversations, please let me know!
