Try it out

Whom do you know who is a lot older than you and who is a Christian – maybe your grandparent or someone at church? If you don’t know anyone older, ask your Bible Coach if they know someone you could talk to, together. Talk to the older Christian and ask them to tell you what it means to them to be a Christian. What have they learned through their life? How have they lived for God? What have they done to try to follow him and obey him? What has been the best thing about it?

 

Talk to God
