These are the Teen Trails of Truth for Youth Illustrated Bible Studies in Cherbears Den Teen Caverns. These six lessons are appropriate for bringing in the New Year as they explain all that becomes new when we become children of God by accepting His Son, Jesus, as our Lord and Savior. They are also included as part of my Gospel for Teens and Preteens pages, presenting salvation by grace through Jesus Christ! The Curriculum page for this study is "What's New With Jesus?"

"Come, follow me, "Jesus said.
"and I will make you fishers of men."
Matthew 4:19

New Life - Casting the Line

When you know Jesus Christ in a personal way, you will experience New Life. God gives you an eternal life with Him in heaven. He also gives you a New Life here on earth. That life will take you into a deeper level of understanding His Word. He reveals Himself to those who love Him and obey His Word. He gives his children the power to live above the things of the world.

In the book of John in the New Testament, Jesus told his disciples the way to God by saying, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6 The Bible also says, no one can know Jesus unless God the Father draws them to Him. Think about that! God makes the first move. It is the Holy Spirit who guides us. He wants us to help Him by 'Casting Out a Line' of love and telling others about Jesus.

Joshua Jackrabbit is ice fishing in the forest pond. He wants to catch something wonderful. Will he catch a big fish? Joshua doesn't know what he might catch. He is just happy he can fish today and he will keep on "Casting Out the Line!"

When we tell others about Jesus and the New Life only He can give, will they listen? They will when God is working in their lives. We may think we are only catching "old shoes." We may only see rejection. However, God uses all those seeds as He draws and prepares them to come to Jesus. He has asked us to plant seeds in the hearts and minds of others by sharing His Son. The Holy Spirit will take those seeds and use them to lead others to Jesus. We are only responsible for the seeds we plant. God will do the rest. Jesus Saves!
