In this movie the characters discuss how they got their Native American names. These names are there identities. While some of the movie is not suitable for younger kids the part about their names is a great illustration for this lesson or my lesson "Taking His Name."

Love Machines:
teen bible study on biblical love relationships

The goal of this lesson is get kids to realize: 1. The Bible is primarily a book about LOVE. 2. That they’re relationship with God is as unique as they are. However they relate to and worship God is OK. They do not need to fit into a “cookie-cutter” mold of what a “Christian” is supposed to look like. They were created especially like they are to have a special relationship with God unique to them.

Kids are very self conscious and want to fit in. It can be confusing for them to see someone in a worship service raising their hands, singing with eyes closed, in rapt spirituality when they don't feel that way. It's tough when parents insist they stand and sing when they don't want too. They need to understand that it's OK to worship in different ways. This is a good lesson for boys especially to show them that it is OK to love God in masculine ways.

I Am God's Son: i_am_gods_son

More than any other Christian message, the knowledge that I was God's son lifted my self esteem and helped me survive the tough middle-school years.

Often times, especially in smaller schools, a child will be given a nickname (not always a nice one) that describes what the others think of them. This can be a positive or negative thing, but they may believe it is their identity.  I use a clip from the movie, Dances With Wolves (shown on the left), where the main character is given his name by the members of the Indian tribe.

This is a simple lesson with a powerful message. It might not mean a lot to them now but the Holy Spirit will use it just when the time is right. The goal of this lesson is to etch their identity as a Child of God into their memories as a foundational truth about their lives.
