Teenagers 101 Message Descriptions
Run to Win
Most teens don't think about their actions in light of a day of judgment. Many Christians mistakenly think because they are "saved by grace" they won’t have to give an account for their words or actions. The Bible teaches we all have a race to run and a finish line to cross in life. How are we to run these laps in the race so that we can win the prize at the end? This message will encourage young people and parents to run the race with purpose and hope.

In the second part, two more important questions are dealt with. 1) What truths should guide a young adult's relationship with his or her parents? And 2) Do others have any right or place to intervene between parents and a teen?
