"When God is Late" is a one-off message package that explores the feeling that all of us have either had or will have some day: that God is late. When something difficult or tragic happens in our lives or the lives of people we love, our faith can often be shaken. We wonder why God didn't answer our prayers or on our timetable. This practical message gives students four things to remember when they are going through extreme difficulty:

1. God can handle our questions
2. Jesus suffers with us
3. Speak truth
4. God is not done, so don't give up

This message is based around three New Testament accounts where God was seemingly late: Jarius' daughter, Lazarus, and Jesus' crucifixion.

This Resource Includes:
• Complete message manuscript (3500+ words, Word file)
• Small group guide (Word file)
• Message-themed game and response activity document (Word file)
• A Powerpoint presentation (and alternative Keynote version)
• A title and Instagram graphic (jpeg files)

Note from the Author

Download this message and keep it in your back pocket for when your students need it this year. They will!

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.

Thank YOU!
