The middle school youth will become familiar with the life of Christ as it is written in the four Gospels.
Edge Night at a Glance
Why did some people not recognize Jesus as the Messiah? The Israelites were expecting a savior in the form of another mighty king who would rescue them and unite the kingdom once again. However, as Philippians tells us, “taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross” (2:7-8). Jesus is the Revelation that God was pointing to throughout the Old Testament. Through reading and studying the Gospels, we come to know the intimate love of God through His one and only Son. The Gospels are the central focus of the Bible because they describe the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The Gospels reveal to us a relationship that our loving Father wants to have with us. The middle school youth will have a time to hear the message of the Gospel and then reflect on how it changes our lives. We cannot hear Christ’s message and be the same; He moves us! The Cardboard Testimonies are a powerful way for the Core to share their conversions as well as a chance for the youth to examine areas that need to be given to God.
