Now Available: Love and Truth

Now Available: Love and Truth

A new Bible curriculum for youth groups and assemblies—now available here at positiveaction.org!

We announced this study in our most recent catalog, and we’re happy to say it’s finally ready to purchase.

Love and Truth is a brand-new 30-lesson youth curriculum with a concept adapted from our legacy Bible study, Ships. We wrote these lessons to help your students learn how to cultivate godly, healthy, hope-filled relationships. We tackle a wide range of issues, but instead of reacting to hot topics, we’ve tried to present a positive relational philosophy that reflects God’s own grace. As our heavenly Father, He is the source of true love and loving truth.

Through these lectures and exercises, your class will explore the following:

  • Lordship – We treasure our bond to God above all others. He is our Creator, our Savior, and our Sustainer—the model for every good relationship.
  • Kinship – We honor our parents and cherish our children, pointing every family member to Christ.
  • Friendship – We choose our friends wisely, and then build them up through kindness, encouragement, and forgiveness.
  • Fellowship – We worship and serve with fellow believers, glorifying God by discipling others for Him.
  • Citizenship – We learn, work, and serve to advance the gospel of Christ, choosing to claim or forgo our rights for His sake.
  • Marriage and Courtship – We honor our spouse, celebrating gender, intimacy, and sexuality through committed, sacrificial love. While still unmarried, we seek a spouse only in love and truth.

You can download a full lesson-by-lesson scope and sequence here.
