A six-week devotional on how Jesus pursues His people.


Doug's note: I'll be using this in our youth group. I love this kind of resource--make as many copies as I want. Love it! Such a deal!

Editor Note: This is a well-written and well-organized devotional. It'll connect both with students who are newer to the faith and students who have been going to church for a long time.

In the church, we talk a lot about how we can pursue Jesus. But what about how Jesus pursues us? This six-week devotional is all about the pursuit of Jesus toward His people. Each week has three days worth of Bible reading, devotion time, study questions, and application questions. Use this before a mission trip or camp to prepare the hearts of your students. Or, break it up into six three-day devotions on the topics of love, restoration, justice, mercy, grace, and salvation. It's perfect for a D-NOW weekend or other weekend retreat. It's also set up to create a teaching series based on the subjects of each week.
