If That Makes Sense is back for season two with more conversations about the real experiences, struggles and joys of following Jesus as young adults! Growing up in a Christian home is a huge blessing, but it’s not without its unique challenges. Maybe you knew all about Jesus from childhood before you knew him as your personal Savior? If you’ve ever felt like you don’t have an “exciting” testimony, felt like you weren’t saved from any “big” sins, or if Veggie Tales just makes you nostalgic, have we got an episode for you!
Have you ever moved? It’s always so hard to leave a place you are familiar with and go to a new house, a new school, a new environment. You feel so uprooted and unsettled. It doesn’t matter if it’s across the street or across the state. It’s hard. But imagine moving to a completely new country! Mr. Jacobs, Destin, Sam, and Laura get ready to help some new neighbors move in to the neighborhood. (Scripture: Leviticus 19:34, Matthew 25, Luke 6:27, Romans 12:20, 1st Peter 3:9, Leviticus 19, and Luke 6:31)
Have you ever made cookies or something and they were such a hit that they disappeared before you could get any yourself? This almost happened to Mr. Jacobs when he and Rachel help Violet make pancakes and Olan helps eat them. Thankfully Mr. Jacobs sets aside a few for himself so he won’t go hungry. Just like, as he points out, God set’s aside things for Himself! (Scripture: Genesis 2:3, Exodus 25:8, Genesis 12, and 1st Corinthians 1:2)
Pumpkins. Candles. Shadows. It’s that time of year. But why is it such a big deal? Is Halloween something Christians should celebrate? Sage, Flora, and Miss Tabitha discuss what it means to be Christians in a scary world. (Matthew 5:14-16, Psalm 27:1, John 8:12, 2nd Corinthians 4:6, 1st John 1:5, Ephesians 5:8, Matthew 5:16, and Romans 14)
It’s easy to forget stuff sometimes, we can all relate to that. But sometimes we forget important things. After Kim’s dad forgets to pick her up from school, Kim and Ivy wonder, “What if God forgets us?” Mr. Jacobs points to the Bible as always! (Scripture: Matthew 10, Matthew 6, Deuteronomy 31:6, and John 14:15)
