Week Three Mentor Guide

Mentor Guide – Week 3

At least once each week, sit down with a Christian friend from your church and talk through the Mentor Guide below. There is no preparation needed for either of you, this will just give you an opportunity to talk through some big questions and issues about knowing God. The Mentor will ask you each of the questions for the week and then they will allow you to ask any question that you may have thought about during the week. The questions are for you to practice talking about Jesus and to help clarify some of the things that are happening in your life. If you don’t know the answer to a question, don’t worry about it. That is why you are meeting with the mentor.

Mentors, ask the questions below:

Ask student about their relationships with friends and family. Who is encouraging them to follow Christ and who is distracting them from following Christ?

Have you continued reading your Bible and your devotions this week?

Ask student if they are feeling tempted by old habits. Talk about how old habits are harder to go back to if the student has accountability.

Do you understand that Jesus loves you and will always be with you? Remind student of their security in Christ.

Ask student to repeat their memory verse for this week: 2 Corinthians 5:17

Pray with student asking God to protect them from temptation. Ask God to continue to break bad habits in their lives.  Ask that God would help friends and family members begin to see Christ working in the student’s life.
