slide 1: Bible Lessons For Youth - The Impossible Dream With God you can achieve the impossible. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com slide 2: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Doctors and scientists said it was impossible Man could not run a mile in less than 4 minutes He would die in the foolish attempt. It was an Impossible Dream. Our bone structure was wrong. Wind resistance was too great. We had inadequate lung power. Our heart could not take the strain. slide 3: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com 25 year-old Roger Bannister wasn’t listening. He endured thousands of monotonous laps Around the same university track Determined to shape his body and his mind. May 6 1954 at Oxford University in England Was viewed as simply another attempt In a history of foolish attempts To achieve the Impossible Dream. slide 4: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Yet at the end of the race the stop- watches held a different view. The results were announced. ‘Result of one mile… time 3 minutes…’ The rest was lost in the roar of the crowd. Roger Bannister blazed across the finish line In a time of 3 minutes 59.4 seconds. The Impossible Dream was now an event for the history books Considered one of the greatest feats in sports history. slide 5: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com 46 days after Bannister’s breakthrough The record was broken again by a different runner. By the end of 1957 16 runners had achieved the Impossible. Runners did not suddenly get “better” in those few short years. They simply began to believe. Running a mile in less than four minutes was not only possible It had been achieved slide 6: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com To date 955 runners have achieved the Impossible Dream Accomplishing the feat an incredible 4700+ times. Many of life’s barriers and obstacles come from within. We create limits for ourselves. But once those barriers are broken We realize the biggest barriers are our beliefs. slide 7: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com What beliefs are keeping you from achieving your dreams Don’t accept them. Don’t listen to the voices of doubt. Forge ahead in faith and you too Can achieve Impossible Dreams slide 8: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com “Jesus looked at them and said “With man this is impossible but with God all things are possible.” -Matthew 19:26 “But when he asks he must believe and not doubt because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord…” - James 1:6-7 slide 9: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Take it to the Next Level Belief plays a significant part in the life of believers. We believe in Christ for salvation. And through our faith in Him God does the impossible. As William Carey pioneer missionary of the modern missions movement said “Expect great things from God attempt great things for God.” slide 10: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com And like Roger Bannister we may have seemingly impossible dreams. As William Carey pioneer missionary of the modern missions movement said “Expect great things from God attempt great things for God.” Unlike Roger Bannister we don’t do things for earthly accolades but for the rewards of heaven that one day we might stand before God and hear ‘Behold my servant in whom I am well pleased.” slide 11: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Applying it to life • What are some of the things the world sees as impossible that God does in the lives of youth today • What barriers and doubts do youth face in the Christian journey • What is something you need to believe God for in your life slide 12: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Need an evangelistic Youth Camp/ Bible Study Series with an Olympic Theme What is salvation all about What does it mean to be saved This sports themed Bible Study / Camp Curriculum uses the Olympic Flag to introduce the concepts of sin black circle forgiveness red circle purity white background spiritual growth green circle heaven Yellow Circle and Baptism blue circle. Creative Youth Ideas Go for the Gold - Tell me about “Go for the Gold” www.creativeyouthideas.com/goforthegold.html slide 13: www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Need a Youth Camp/ Bible Study Series on ”Running the Christian Race” The race as a metaphor for the Christian life is used in several places in the Bible. This series is a great follow up for new Christians or to re-emphasize the basics of our spiritual Journey in the Faith. This Bible Study / Camp Curriculum has a sports theme and is great for athletes as well as a tie in to the youth Olympic Games.
