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.

This Resource Includes:
• Complete message manuscript (Word file)

Note from the Author

The manuscript offers a creative idea to help you communicate that you felt similar thoughts when you were a student. If your service starts in an hour, you won't have time, but the script will still set you up to win without it!

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.
