This is a 5-week downloadable message transcript series. Included in this file are 5 Microsoft word documents containing the full word-for-word message transcripts and student outlines.
God wants us to live as the original masterpieces He's created us to be. So why do we try so hard to be carbon copies of each other? Because we lack the confidence to do otherwise. Use this series to help your students discover how they can walk through life with their heads held high, confident of who they are in Christ.
- Week 1 - Cleaning Up The Shame And Guilt - Thirty-five percent of Americans say, "I feel guilty all the time, and I have no idea why." This shame and guilt robs us of our confidence. This lesson gives us three steps to get rid of the shame and guilt and embrace the forgiveness that Jesus offers.
- Week 2 - Accepting The Truth That God Is Crazy About You - God is our Father, but for many people, that sounds like a bad thing. Their idea of a father is someone who is distant, demanding, a deadbeat, or even dangerous. This message will help you see that God loves you as no other Father ever could. He is gentle and generous as He guides us through life.
- Week 3 - Staying Up When Your World Is Falling DownWe live in a broken world, and Jesus Himself promises that we will experience suffering. Why? And what do we do about it? This message uses five action steps and a young lady's amazing testimony to show us how God can use even the worst situations to bring about good in our lives and other peoples'.
- Week 4 - What God Does That We Can't See - Whether we realize it or not, God is working behind the scenes to defend us from our enemy and to provide us with a sumptuous banquet of a life.
