GODS LOVE AND HIS PLAN FOR US


TALK ONE OF THE YFC YOUTH CAMP
EXPANDED OUTLINE
I. INTRODUCTION
A. The Crazy Dream
(NOTE: The crazy dream exercise is done so that the speaker may have an
amusing way of making the participants realize God's tremendous love for
them.
Just as the participants may have their own "crazy dreams" their own
nearly impossible hopes of things that are better, God has His own
seemingly impossible dream for us, "a plan for a future and a hope" in
union with Him. It is this plan for us that may be used to introduce God's
love to the participants.)
1. Ask the participants about their greatest ambition or craziest
dream. Give them 30 seconds to do this. Allow 35 persons to share.
2. Even God has a crazy dream.
(Referring to the "crazy dreams" of the participants.) All of us have
our own crazy dreams, but even God has his own "crazy dream". I
say this, because like many others, our dreams may seem far out,
hard to believe.
But then again, He is God, and nothing is impossible with Him. Let's
see what
God's crazy dream is. (Illustrate creatively, reflect and share the
essence of
Isaiah 65:1725)
This is God's crazy dream, His plan for us, "For I know well the plans I
have in mind for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare, not
for woe! plans to give you a future full of hope." (Jeremiah 29:11).
This is all because of His great love for us. This is his great plan for us.
1. Plans for your welfare, not for woe. God is always after our
wellbeing, our happiness and safety. As Gods own, everything that
comes from Him is good. When He created us, He created us to last
forever.
2. Plans to give you a future full of hope. As uncertain as the
future is, God guarantees us that not even a part of it will be in
despair and that the whole and everything in it is positive and
desirable.

Go Andre! The MAAAN! :-P


B. You may have your own reasons for being here (your friends are here,
you want to meet new friends, your parents forced you, you are truly
seeking God).
I believe God brought you here, to hear about His love, and His plan in
your life.

II. WHY WE ARE NOT EXPERIENCING GOD'S PLAN


You may be asking. If God loves us so much, why are our lives and
situations so different from what He says His plans are for us?
Show the disparity between God's plan (Isaiah 65:1725) and the situation
around us.
On a larger scale (world): poverty (ex. people in other countries
are starving), same sex marriage, rampant teenage pregnancy, drug
abuse, abortion, global warming, etc.
On a local scale (in our country): state local issues relevant in your
area like drug addiction, corruption, street crime, etc.
On our self: insecurity, hatred, pessimism, doubt, peer pressure,
etc.
In our families: we have broken relationships; some people we
know have broken families; sometimes we really dont make time to
spend with them, sibling rivalry, etc.
A. We experience these sufferings because we choose to.
They think that they are victims of their circumstances but must
emphasize that each of us has a CHOICE. Each of us is given a FREE WILL
to choose a response to any given situation, good or bad.
1. (Gen. 3:121)
When our first parents chose to disobey, and rebel against God's
commands, they chose to turn away from God the source of all life. In
doing so, they chose death, and suffering. From the moment this
happened, our world that was full of life and blessing began to experience
difficulties, pain, suffering, and even death.
2. (Romans 6:23)
Even today, whenever we choose to go against God, (or the
authorities He has placed over us, e.g. parents, government and school
authorities), we continue to choose the suffering and death that our first
parents chose. (Mention specific experiences to bring your point across)

Go Andre! The MAAAN! :-P

B. God did not end it at that.


God wants us to experience the fullness of life but we continue to
follow our own preferences. By choosing to turn away from this promise,
God could have just as well chosen to turn away from us, destroy us as we
deserve, and create a more faithful people who would gladly accept His
love and the life that He offers. Instead, He decided that His love, His
mercy should prevail.
1. He began by sending His prophets.
2. John 3:16
Finally, He chose to send His only Son to die for us because He did
not want to see us suffer in our sin and die forever.
NOTE: Make use of the diagram to illustrate how Christ bridges the
gap that sin creates between God and man.

III. CONCLUSION
(Note: One way to challenge the participants to respond is to seek God
during the camp, to participate, but all the more, to receive Gods love
and try to respond by desiring to know about God and to live for Him.)

Go Andre! The MAAAN! :-P

God loves everyone of us as if there was but one of us to love.(St.


Augustine)
God has a seemingly insane love for usa love that would suffer
even death on a cross. Even if you were the only one who needed saving,
God would do it all for you.
Lets respond to this love. Lets decide to love God back.
(The speaker calls on the two sharers)
(The speaker then leads them to a reflection)
(Optional: Show closing AVP presentation to enhance reflection
activity and group discussions.)
