Dear Parent/Guardian:

Thank you for your willingness to walk with your student(s) as they learn more about what it means to be a Christian through this study of the Book of James. Here at the Eleven 22 Youth Ministry our ethos or focus is “Learn, Live, and Lead”. Our goal is for each student to Learn their Faith, Live their Faith, and Lead with their Faith. In order for this to happen as a ministry and Church family we must teach them, train them and trust them. As a youth ministry it is our role to walk with you as the parent/guardian as you lead your student(s) in what it means to live a Christian life.
It is our hope that this 27-Day devotional will achieve a few objectives:

1.It will assist your student(s) to understand what it means to be a Christian and live a life focused on Jesus.
2. It will create a bridge between what Rev. Watley is teaching in the adult sessions and what the students are learning.
3. It will create a time throughout the week for you and your student(s) to pray, study, and discuss the Word of God for the next 27 days or more!
This devotional was created by some of our youth ministry leaders in order to allow each day to relate to each student. As a ministry we will be praying with you and for you as we study the Book of James. Please have your student read the note for them on the next page and encourage them to begin reading the devotional daily, beginning today.

Dear Student:

I know what you might be thinking; I don’t have time to read a devotional every day? Or maybe you are thinking the Bible is boring and I never get anything from it? Or maybe you are saying to yourself I can’t wait to start reading this plan with my Church. The truth is all of these are good answers and as your youth minister I have been in each situation. I haven’t always wanted to read the Bible every day or even study it. When I was younger I thought anything and everything was more important than reading God’s Word. I can tell you from experience I was very wrong. Reading God’s Word is like feeding yourself the best food everyday of your life. You know good food don’t you? The truth is you cannot find better food for your life and your body than the Word of God.
For the next 27-days I am encouraging you to read the Book of James with us as a Church. Rev. Watley is going over this Book with your parent/guardian and we will be using this devotional for our youth ministry. The Book of James is a great short Book of the Bible. James teaches us about being a Christian in almost every situation of our lives. This devotional was written by members of Eleven 22 Youth Ministry team and is designed to be easy and simple to work through. Each day you will have a scripture to read, a “breakdown”, which is the devotional, a “live it out”, which is to help you live the scripture out that day and then we close each day with a prayer. These devotionals will not take you long to read but we hope you set a consistent time each day to read the devotional and then pray about how to apply the lesson to your day. We are looking forward to growing with you in the next 27 days visit us online and see you soon.
