talk time

We encounter truth and false statements every day. Sometimes we are sure about what is true, sometimes we are not. Talk about:

  • What do you believe or know to be true about Jesus?
  • When someone does not believe in Jesus, how do you gently show them the truth?
  • When you are unsure about something about Jesus, how do you find the truth?
  • How can we be sure Jesus is real? What does it mean to have faith?  
  • How do you think God might feel if we don't believe he is real and truthful?


O Jesus, I believe in you as my Lord and Savior. Help me to get rid of any doubts or fears I may have. Keep me strong in my faith and sure of my devotion to you. May I always look to you to help and protect me and lead me where you want me to go. Let my relationship with you continue to grow and develop. Amen.

God is 3 persons? How can that be?
Use an apple and see.

Have an adult cut open an apple. Peel off the skin, separate a piece of the flesh and remove the seeds. You see the skin, but the skin is the skin. You see the flesh, but the flesh is the flesh. You see the seeds, but the seeds are the seeds.
None are an apple alone, but together they are an apple. 

The Father is the Father.
The Son is the Son.
The Holy Spirit is the Holy Spirit.
But together they are God.
