The following are the notes from this week’s CROSSROADS lesson. Words in bold identify key phrases from notes pages handed out each week. If you would like copies of our slides, please feel free to reach and request them. As these are from the notes pages for each week, please excuse any typos or grammatical errors.
This lesson is part of a series called “What Does It Mean To Be A Christian”. To see an overview of this series, click HERE.
This week’s slides didn’t have a ton of notes because it was designed to be more interactive. We challenged students to evaluate their own hearts and determine whether their hearts seemed to mimic the same beat as God’s own heart.
David was someone who came after God’s own heart (1 Samuel 13:13-14). He experienced great triumph and horrible failure but always stayed true to God. You can see this reflected in his many Psalms. In CROSSROADS, we read through Psalms 25 and highlighted several verses that demonstrate the focus of David’s heart.
I encourage everyone to check out our podcast for this lesson and conduct their own “heart health” assessment.
- Does your treatment of family reflect God’s model for the family?
- Does what you look for in a companion match with God’s plan for relationships?
- Does your treatment of other people reflect the selfless love Christ showed others?
