Youth Group Sermon Outline: Your Story

Here is a free youth group sermon outline for your teens ministry!

Who doesn’t love to hear a good story? They can make us laugh until our sides hurt, cry into our pillows, yell at inanimate objects, or even spring into action.

From the movies we stream to the short clips we share online, we are constantly consuming stories. We are also constantly creating stories. This series is all about helping students live a life that ultimately brings God glory. In a culture where we are obsessed with seven-second videos, it’s powerful to help students see their individual lives as part of a much bigger plan.

“Your Story ” is a three-week youth group sermon outline, including:

1: How to Write a Better Story
You are a major part of God’s story for this world. Sure, we share highlights of our stories on Instagram, but it goes so much deeper than that. You get the chance to tell a story with each day of your life. Every single action you make and word you speak is adding chapters to your story, so make them count! God is ready to use you right now, where you are, with what you already have.
Scripture: Judges 6:1-15

2: How to Share Your Story
Regardless of what plans you’ve made or how focused you are on your own life, it’s important to remember the point of your story. God has called you to impact the lives of those around you. Look for the opportunities you have to make a difference. Include the outcast. Invite the ignored. Love the people around you, because that is what God has called you to do.
Scripture: Luke 19:1-9

3: How to Control Conflict in Your Story

All of our stories are guaranteed to include conflict. We will be let down. We’ll fail and make mistakes. There will be loss and heart break. You’ll be wronged. But, conflict doesn’t ruin your life or your story. It can actually do the opposite if you grow through what you go through.
Scripture: Jeremiah 17:7-8, Philippians 4:6-8
