Class Explorations:  Philippians 1 - A Good Work

Read Philippians 1:1-6

What good work has God begun in you?

  • Draw on the board a small seed. 
  • Draw the stages of a plant growing out of the seed--first a few leaves and eventually a large plant.
  • Finally the plant produces a flower which becomes a seedpod.  The new seeds will produce other plants.

Compare this to the life of young people:

  • First opening your heart's door to God.
  • God begins to change you on the inside.
  • People around you can't always big changes fast--but usually slow, quiet changes.

What was Paul's prayer for the people at Philippi?  Read verses 9-11.

Were the people of Philippi ashamed to be Christians?  Read verses 20 - 30.

What about you?  Are you ashamed to be a Christian?

Why?  Let God finish what He has started in you.
