In this five-session small group Bible study, The Me I Want to Be, Teen Edition, John Ortberg reveals how there’s a real you (the one God intended) hiding under the one you pretend to be. There is a God (it isn’t you). Your life is a project (it isn’t yours). The real you is waiting (it isn’t hard). God’s best version of you is waiting. But first, John Ortberg has two very important questions:
- Are you REALLY LIVING? (Full of joy and peace, in harmony with God, others and self; curious, willing to learn and experience opportunities to grow toward the best version of yourself) or
- Are you DECAYING? (Lacking mental and emotional energy, feeling uneasy and not very content, too self-focused)
In his usual style, Ortberg has some intriguing answers to those questions in this study and will help you gauge your spiritual health and deal with real issues you face as a teen in today’s world.
Underneath the “me” you pretend to be (the one that acts cool while fearing you’re not) and the “me” you fail to be (the one that doesn’t always feel very excited about life) you will discover something remarkable.
