Summer discipleship?

Getting your teens to pay attention in the summer … seems impossible, right? But summer is a great time for small weekly discipleship groups. It’s not too late to start, especially as we’re more isolated from each other and some of your teens may not be able to meet in person.

How about taking your teens through the whole book of Romans? What better way to teach your students about the gospel and prepare them for life after high school?SW-May20-header

James Montgomery Boice has called Romans “the most basic, most comprehensive statement of true Christianity.” In this, his longest letter, the apostle Paul gives a clear, complete, and grand explanation of the gospel.

Reading the book of Romans has had a profound effect on church leaders. The fourth-century scholar and bishop Augustine was converted while reading Romans 13:11–14. Reformer Martin Luther understood justification by faith alone for the first time while reading Romans 1:16–17. Countless others throughout history have spoken of the strong influence of this book on their faith, including John and Charles Wesley, John Calvin, and Jonathan Edwards. And so many unnamed, ordinary people have become Christians by learning about Jesus from this powerful book.

Studying Romans gives your students the opportunity to unpack the great truths of the gospel and find as Luther did, that, “It can never be read or pondered too much, and the more it is dealt with the more precious it becomes, and the better it tastes.”
