What we talked about
This was the last week of our four-week series on “Jesus and Your Influence.” This week’s lesson was entitled “Ultimate Influence,” and it focused on helping students understand that the ultimate use of their influence is leading others to Christ.
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” -Matthew 28:16-20
Questions for Conversation
During the next week as you have time to talk with your student, consider asking the following questions:
- Jesus entrusted the entire mission of the Church to His disciples, even though they had recently betrayed Him. Why do you think Jesus did that?
- What is the hardest part about pointing the people in our life toward Jesus?
- Who is the person you decided you wanted to invest in to help point them to Jesus?
- Bonus: Share about the person (or people) who influenced you by pointing you toward Jesus. In addition, share about ways that you’ve tried (or are trying) to use your influence to point others to Jesus.
