Week 6: Every Way Like Christ

Coach's Corner


“Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ.” — Ephesians 4:15a

Let’s share about our favorite athlete.

  1. Who is an athlete that you want to be like?
  2. What about that athlete do you admire?


There’s probably a good reason why you have a favorite athlete or team. They are good at what they do, and you want to be good like them!  When you watch them compete, it helps you learn to get better at what you do. What have you learned from your favorites?

It’s even more important to have someone to look up to when you’re growing in your relationship with God. For that, Jesus is your role model! Show of hands, who knew this?

You are growing and in every way becoming more like Christ! Here’s what the Bible says about being rooted in Christ:

“And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” — Colossians 2:6-7

Just like Jesus, you are called to become more like Him and show others who He is.

The Bible explains that “…God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time…” — 2 Timothy 1:9

God wants you to live like Jesus so others will see that you are a new creation. His purpose for you is to share the Good News of salvation to everyone around you and make a difference in your world.


“Dear God, I want to be rooted in Your Word and be strong, willing, and able to accept the calling and purpose You have for my life. Amen.”
