10 Reasons to Share the Gospel in Every Youth Talk


It allows you and your teens an opportunity to taste and see God’s glory firsthand.

1. It may be the only time a teenager visits your group and hears the gospel. (1 Corinthians 14:24)

2. The same gospel that saves the unbelieving teens sanctifies believing ones. (1 Corinthians 1:18)

3. “I preach the gospel to myself everyday because I forget it everyday.” (If it’s true of Luther, it’s true of our teens!)

4. “I take my text and make a beeline for the cross.” (Good enough for Spurgeon, good enough for me!)

5. “For I resolved to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” (1 Corinthians 2:2)

6. It supercharges the atmosphere and creates a climate of selflessness and excitement. (Acts 4:31-33)

7. It triggers spiritual warfare which always livens things up. (Ephesians 6:10-12)

8. It exponentially advances the kingdom of God, and that’s why you got into youth ministry. Right? (Colossians 1:6)

9. It heals the brokenhearted and hurting … which many of our teens are. (Luke 4:18)

10. It allows you and your teens an opportunity to taste and see God’s glory firsthand. (2 Thessalonians 2:13,14)
