So we started off with a pile of sand in the center of the room on the floor. I then shared this old illustration with the students: What if the earth was covered in sand and once every million years, a bird removed just one grain of sand. How long would it take for the sand to be removed off of the earth?
This is only a glimpse of what eternity is.
We then began discussing all things hell. The students shared what they have heard about hell including the who, where, why, and how of hell. We then turned to scripture for answers. Students agreed that hell is for real and they learned that Jesus preached more on hell then He did on the topic of heaven.
God gave us the Bible with warnings of His wrath and judgment. Just as a parent wants the best for their kids, so does our Father in heaven. Matthew 7:13-14 says “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” I concluded by asking the students if they were confident their names are written the book of life and let them know they can always talk to a leader at the church if they aren’t sure or want to give their life to Christ.
This week, Careem McBean will be sharing with us. You student(s) won’t want to miss it!
