课堂起头(10分钟)

在过去的几周里,我们讨论了很多内容,以至想到活出真理可能会让人感到不知所措。

(让学生花一些时间写下以下问题的答案。然后,让几位学生与全班分享想法。)


一般讨论:

1.从这个系列课程中,你收获了哪些新的想法或观念?

2.在我们讨论的活出真理的方式中,哪一种对你来说最难?


今天,我们想通过提供一些如何活出真理的建议来结束学习。


深入学习(30分钟)

毫无疑问,我们应该活出真理并遵循正确的道路。虽然我们会受到诱惑去妥协我们的信仰,但有一种真实和正确的行为方式。圣经清楚地告诉我们,作为基督徒,我们应该与不跟随耶稣的人有所不同。


读 罗马书 6:6;以弗所书 4:22-24;歌罗西书 3:9-10


很明显,我们的生活应该与以前不同,也应该与非基督徒不同。这是无可争辩的事实;然而,有时候活出真理可能会很困难,因为我们的动机混乱。


对基督信仰以及对你而言,当你努力活出真理时,最大的危险之一是你会变得自以为是和假冒为善。这是耶稣时代一些宗教领袖的问题。他们被称为法利赛人,耶稣对他们说了一些沉重的话。


读 马太福音 23:25-28

问题讨论:

1.耶稣说法利赛人犯有什么罪?

2.祂举了几个例子说明他们的假冒为善。是些什么例子?

3.假冒为善的生活如何影响了那些非基督徒?

4.今天这种假冒为善对教会有害吗?为什么?


耶稣讲了一个故事,更清楚地说明了假冒为善,这在路加福音 18 中有描述。


读 路加福音 18:9-14

问题讨论:

1.这个故事中两个人之间有什么不同?

2.日常生活中有哪些与这个故事相似?

3.你认识的人中有喜欢炫耀自己善行的人吗?

4.为什么谦卑更可取?


耶稣明确表示,假冒为善不是正确的生活方式。事实上,如果你自以为是,信靠自己的善良,那你就犯了最严重的罪之一。我们被呼召过正直的生活永远不是为引人注目。


读 马太福音 5:14-16

问题讨论:

1.根据这段经文,我们是否应该过美善的生活,过“发光的生活”呢?(是的)

2.为什么要过这样的生活,让别人们颂扬我们吗?(不)

3.当人们看到我们的生活时,谁应该受到颂扬?(神)


你被召唤活出真理,不是为被认为是一个好人,一个好伙伴或一个温柔的女孩。你被召唤过正确的生活,是为当人们看到你的生活方式时荣耀神的。这一切都是为了引人注目于祂,而不是我们自己。


应用(10分钟)

在几周前这个系列课程的开头,我们讨论了各种对与错的情景。现在,让我为你描绘最后一个情景。


想象一下你活出了真理。你决定以生活,以认识对错,以实际行动来荣耀耶稣。


你正视钱财,对人友善,尊重他人,表现出自我控制...所有这些。


• 人们会对你有什么看法?

• 你最亲密的朋友会在你身上看到什么不同?

• 你的父母会怎么想这些转变?

• 你认为非信徒会对你有何不同的反应?

• 你还需要改变什么?


我们每个人的生活中都有需要更完全交托给耶稣的方面。毫无疑问,我们仍会努力讲真理,做正确的决定,保持正确的方向。随着时间的推移,你可能会发现自己正在进步。


你会意识到,你不再传闲言碎语了,不再不尊重权柄了,你正在活出真理。当这种情况发生时,避免变得骄傲和假冒为善。伪君子自我吹嘘,门徒归荣耀给神。


查看雅各书 4:10。这是一个值得记住的好经文。


结束祷告(10分钟)

我们来到关于是与非的研究的结束时间了,让我们以谦卑的态度结束吧。每个人都跪在你所在的地方。我会带领你进行一些祈祷练习,希望你能跟着做。在我提到每个点之后,我会停顿一会,你可以花时间私下向神祈求,让祂赐予你荣耀祂的能力。让我们跪下祈祷:

(在读完每个点后停顿约30秒。慢慢而坚定地朗读。最后说阿门。)


祈求...

…神赐予你分辨对错、真理和谎言的能力

…神帮你找到在祂里面的价值

…你成为一个真实的人,不撒谎

…你会善待他人,即使是那些难以对付的人

…你会尊重你的父母、老师、教会领袖和所有有权柄的人

…你会自我控制,避免过度放纵

…你会信靠神供应你的需要

…你不会崇拜金钱或物质,而是唯独崇拜神

…你的言语会鼓励他人,而不是打击他们

…你不会传闲言碎语或使用粗鲁的语言

…在这一切中,你保持谦卑,不想着被人认可,而是荣耀神


阿门。

Topics

Character, Honor God, Humility, Hypocrisy, Light, Morals, Truth, Truthfulness

Scripture Memorization

James 4:10, Matthew 5: 14-16

OPENING PRAYER (5 to 10 minutes)

GROUP BUILDING (15 minutes)

This lesson concludes the Truth or Dare series. To celebrate, bring snacks for the class to enjoy. Allow some time for everyone to mingle and chat before getting started.  

GETTING STARTED (10 minutes)

We’ve talked about so much in the past weeks that it might seem overwhelming to consider all it means to live in Truth.(Give the students a few moments to write down their answers to the following questions. Then, have a few students share their thoughts with the rest of the class.)General Discussion:1. What new thoughts or ideas have you realized from this lesson series?2. Of the ways we have discussed living in Truth, which was the hardest for you? 

Today, we want to wrap up our study by giving some practical advice on how to live the truth.

DIGGING IN (25 minutes)

There is no doubt that we are supposed to live out our faith in Truth and the Right way. While, we’ll be tempted to compromise what we believe, there is a truth and a proper way to behave. The Scriptures are clear that we, as Christians, are supposed to be different from those who do not follow Jesus.

Read Romans 6:6; Ephesians 4:22-24; Colossians 3:9-10

It is obvious that we are supposed to live differently than we once did and differently than those who are not Christian. There’s little doubt, that is true; however, sometimes living the Truth can become difficult because our motivations get mixed up.

One of the greatest dangers to Christianity, and to you as you seek to live the Truth, is that you will become self-righteous and hypocritical. This was a problem with some religious leaders in Jesus’ time. They were called the Pharisees, and Jesus had some heavy stuff to say to them.

Read Matthew 23:25-28.

Discussion Questions:1. Of what does Jesus say the Pharisees are guilty?2. He uses several examples to illustrate their hypocrisy. What are some of them?3. How does a hypocritical life affect those who are not Christian?4. Do you think hypocrisy is dangerous to the Church today? Why/why not?

Jesus tells a story that illustrates hypocrisy even more in Luke 18. Read Luke 18:9-14

Discussion Questions:1. What is the difference between the two people in this story?2. In what ways is an everyday life similar to this?3. Do you know people who flaunt their good deeds?4. Why is it preferable to be humble?

Jesus is clear—hypocrisy is not the way to live. In fact, if you are self-righteous and put your trust in your own goodness, you are committing one of the gravest sins of all. We are never called to live a righteous life to draw attention to ourselves.

Read Matthew 5:14-16

Discussion Questions:1. According to this passage, are we supposed to live a good life, “shining our light?” (Yes.)2. Why are we supposed to live like this, so that people will glorify us? (No.)3. Who is supposed to be glorified when people see our lives? (God.)

You are not called to live truth so that you can be known as a good person or as a nice guy or a sweet girl. You are called to live rightly so that people will see the way that you live and glorify God. It’s all about drawing attention to Him, not us.

MAKING IT REAL (10 minutes)

At the beginning of this lesson series weeks ago, we discussed various scenarios of right and wrong. Let me paint one last scenario for you.

Imagine you lived the truth. You determined to honor Jesus with your life, recognizing right and wrong, and living it out in practical ways. You were selfless with your money, you were nice to people, you respected others, you demonstrated self-control…all that stuff.

• What would people’s perspective of you be?• What would your closest friends see differently in you?• What would your parents think about those transformations?• How do you think non-believers would respond differently to you?• What do you need to change?

All of us have areas of our life we need to surrender to Jesus more fully. And there’s no doubt that we will still struggle to tell the truth, to make good decisions, and to stay on track. But chances are, over time, you’ll find that you are making progress.

You’ll realize that you aren’t gossiping anymore, you're no longer disrespecting authorities, that you’re living in truth. When that happens, avoid becoming proud and hypocritical. A hypocrite is good for self-glorification. A disciple is good for God’s glorification.

Check out James 4:10. It’d be a good verse to memorize.

CLOSING PRAYER (10 minutes)

So now that we’re at the end of this study on right and wrong, let’s finish up by doing just that—let’s humble ourselves. Everyone kneel where you are. I’m going to lead you in some prayer exercises, and I just want you to follow along. After I mention each point, I'll pause for a while so you can take time to ask God personally to give you the ability to honor Him with that area of your life. Let’s kneel and pray:

(Pause for about 30 seconds after reading each point. Read slowly and deliberately. At the end, say Amen.)

Pray that......God gives you the ability to discern right from wrong, truth from lies  ...God helps you find your value in Him  ...That you will be an honest person and not lie  ...That you will be kind to others, even those who are hard to be kind to  ...That you will respect your parents, teachers, church leaders, and all authority figures  ...That you will have self-control and will avoid over-indulging  ...That you will trust God to supply your needs  ...That you will not worship money or things, but God alone  ...That your words will lift others up—not tear them down  ...That you will not gossip or use filthy language  ...That in in all of this, you will have humility, not wish to be recognized, but instead will glorify God

Amen.
