40 Second Confirmation: Lesson 3 Love

Lesson 3: LOVE

Using the curriculum, "CONFIRM," by Abingdon Press, I made adaptations to our ministry settings during the time of COVID-19 pandemic and the social unrest due to racial injustice committed to some of our Black American brothers and sisters. 


The main reference is in John 13:34, “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another," from the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible.

Here are the main lesson sentences:

Confirmands learn Christians are called to love one another.

Confirmands are led to make a commitment to love as a way of faith.

Confirmands learn from a video.

What stood out to you from the video?

Racism is a huge WALL BLOCK for people to love one another. 

Confirmands are young prophets to break down the WALL.

Confirmands are called to love like Jesus.


3 Questions for Discussion

1.How do you define or describe Christian love?

2. John Wesley’s 3 Simple Rules: Do no harm. Do good. Stay in love with God. How do you sustain, “Staying in love with God?”

3. What is the opposite of love? Why?
