“The core of Sticky Faith is developing a clear and honest understanding of both the gospel and biblical faith. When it comes to a faith that lasts, there is nothing more important than students‟ view of the

What does it mean to be a Christian?

The Gospel in 4 Gs Good
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them… And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good (Genesis 1:27, 31).”

The Gospel in 4 Gs Guilt
“You were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world (Ephesians 2:1-2).”

The Gospel in 4 Gs Grace
“But God being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ…By grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:4-5,

Respond with grace when your child messes up.
• Default with compassion. • Don‟t panic. • Take the long view.

“The greatest gift you can give your children is to let them see you struggle and wrestle with how to live a lifetime of trust in God. Your own love for the Sticky Gospel of trusting God will be more caught than taught. As you trust the gospel and the Lord who saves, your love of the Sticky Gospel will help your kids fall in love with Jesus also.”
