God’s view on fruitfulness in scripture is profound. Typically when we talk about fruitfulness, our tendency as human beings is to think about works. However, works will not produce fruitfulness. Works take sweat. The problem with works is they are hard on people, they produce negative results, and take a lot of sweat. The Aposlte Paul explained what works produces in Galatians 5:19-21 “Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
True fruitfulness does not require sweat, but instead requires Spirit. Paul does not use the phrase “’works’ of the Spirit”, but instead uses the phrase “’fruit’ of the Spirit”. As Paul is trying to point out - the “root” determines the “fruit”. Everyone has an above ground life that is based upon what is in their below ground life. If you want to have a “fruitful” above ground life, you need to have a “rootful” below ground life.
Each week, Gregg Johnson will take students on a journey to learn how to have a deep, full, and wide below ground life in the love of God so that they can have a big, tall, and strong above ground life to share the love of God. Fruit comes with video lessons from Gregg, downloadable and reproducible lesson plans, games, activities, small group discussion starters, questions, memory verse review, and life challenges.
Much of the prep has been done for you. Your prep is simply looking over the written lessons and videos each week, being ready to encourage the students during the sessions, and interacting as a class together. This digital leader kit will fully equip you with lesson plans, tips, activities, artwork, media files, and everything needed to grow roots that produce fruit in young lives!
The testimony of Jesus at 12 is the template of how to reach a generation before they need to be rescued. Jesus spoke 7 words at the age of twelve and our heart and passion is for tweens to live those same 7 words today. J12 is much more about creating a culture to thrive and much less about providing programming to continue their boredom. If tweens get the 7 words of Jesus in their spirit, they will not need programming to live like Jesus, but will instead live like Jesus because of their love for the Father and His business. The most important job as a J12 teacher is to nurture a culture in which tweens can get lost in love with their Father and His business.
