More Bible Topics for Youth to Study
8. Considering Marriage?
God provides clear instructions about marriage. God also tells us what He expects from us as godly leaders of our homes. Study passages in the Bible on how God wants men and women to live. Also spend time studying the relationship men and women should have toward one another.
While studying relationships and marriage, teach young people how they should approach marriage so they can prepare themselves for their future mate.
The Bible often talks about us forgiving others because of the forgiveness Christ offers us (Matthew 6:12-15; Luke 6:37). Jesus specifically commands us to forgive others before we ask Him for forgiveness (Mark 11:25).
Forgiveness shouldn’t be hypocritical. We should be honest when we forgive others (Mark 7:6). This is also not denying that a problem exists. To forgive does not necessarily mean to forget. The Bible says God does “not remember” our sins, but this means He doesn’t hold them against us (Isaiah 43:25; Hebrews 8:12). We may not be able to forget the past actions of others, but we don’t have to hold that sin against them in our future interactions.
Forgiveness is one of the essential Bible topics for youth to study and understand. These are trying times in their lives, when they’ll face testing. However, forgiveness doesn’t get any easier with age. Teens must learn to forgive so they can live a victorious Christian life.
10. Basic Bible Doctrines
