Gospel to teenagers

I have to admit - my Sunday school class at one of the Juvenile Detention centers taught me a big lesson today.

I asked the question: What is Salvation?
Several boys spoke up and reasoned it out together...
"well...when you salvage something it means you dug it out of the dump pit and made it new and good again. So I guess it means Jesus dug us out of the pit and make us new again...right...?"

I was so flabbergasted by the word picture I just sat down and nodded in shock.

Don't be afraid to ask them questions that we even struggle with explaining!

  1. Thanks for sharing, Ted. :) It's funny how we can sometimes get so wrapped up in complex explanations when a simple one will suffice.
