Okay, everyone, this is our last devotional time together. How sad! I want you to turn to a partner and tell them one thing you have learned in our time together.
Throughout these ten weeks, we have been learning about three truths and one action we can all do.
For the past ten weeks, we have been discussing these truths:
- There is greater potential in my life than finding my identity in sports.
- Christ’s Promise of Salvation gives me a new identity.
- God loves you and sent Jesus to save you.
- We are called to love God and love others.
All these truths have been preparing us to Love God and Love Others.
Throughout these past few weeks, we have learned about God’s Game Plan for each of us. In Christ, we have a Greater potential than what is on a scoreboard. Through His sacrifice on the cross, we have the promise of a new life. When we surrender our lives to Jesus, we give up the old expectations to gain a new identity in Christ. The pressure to perform evaporates, and our performance is transformed. We no longer compete for something Greater, but for Someone Greater. We play with a new purpose: He must become Greater, and we must become less.
All of these lessons led us to discuss The FOUR. Can anyone tell me again what the four symbols are? (heart, division sign, cross, and question mark) These symbols are an easy way to learn how to share the Gospel with others. Last, we said that people will know you believe in Christ by the fruit you produce – or the way you act. One way we can show this fruit is by fulfilling our purpose here on earth: to glorify God and tell others about Him.
We have learned a lot over the past few weeks! I hope you understand how much God and I care about you and how God is moving and working in your life every day.
What was your favorite part about Team Huddle times?
Let’s Huddle up and shout, “God’s Greater Plan!”
“God, thank You for this time that we have had together. Thank You for each kid here and the time and attention they have given. I pray that Your words have moved them to action and that they will bring glory to You. I pray that as we keep growing as a team, they will keep growing in their relationship with You. Amen.”
