This one-off sermon addresses one of the top reasons many teenagers don't want to follow Jesus. How often have you heard a teenager say, “Jesus is boring" (they probably think youth workers are boring too). This is a great lesson to teach when your audience has new students.


Lots of people believe in misconceptions about the Christian faith. Teenagers, even church attenders, believe that Jesus is real, but want to get serious about following Him later in life. This sermon will help students understand that Jesus is not a fun-killer and that He turns our "have to" list into our "want to" list. Luke 19:1-10 serves as the backdrop to unpack how Jesus met Zacchaeus where he was. After meeting Jesus, Zacchaeus wanted to change his life; he didn’t have to. Students will be challenged to view Jesus through a different lens: that Jesus came to give life, not take it away. This resource offers a creative video idea to engage with your audience. It also includes a link to a funny video clip and song lyrics to take the topic to the next level.
