Another accessory that every use minister needs while teaching a Bible lesson to his or her youth ministry is proper seating for your students. I have always found that having a casual setting with comfortable chairs leads to a much more engaging experience for your students as they are comfortable with their environment and their surroundings. Now this doesn’t have to be a big splurge and a big spending accessory but to the best of your ability to get comfortable seating for your students.
Unity means togetherness and love. Christians uphold unity in family and church. The Bible tells us in various verses to love one another; yet, even Christians are not perfect. Unity Bible verses such as Galatians 5:14 and 15 express what should be and what happens when what should occur in the Christian walk does not go as directed.

Psalm 23:1 the Lord is my shepherd I shall not want. This is a wonderful passage in the Bible because here David is telling us that because he has made God his shepherd, everything he needs or desires will be provided for him and he shall not be in want of anything. If you made God your shepherd God will provide for you the same way He provided for David.
Teens today have a very short attention span, which is probably why I have found that lessons based on interaction or group discussion seemed to be the best way to engage your students. When I write a series of Bible lessons, I have a teacher handout, a student handout, and a PowerPoint presentation. As the teacher or the leader I do most of the reading to the class. But throughout the entire lesson I ask pre thought out questions to make sure I have everyones attention. Bible lessons are not meant to be boring, you are teaching the Word of God, so let your enthusiasm and excitement show through to the students and make it a point to interact with them throughout the entire lesson.
Now that you have your Bible lessons ready to go, I have found that the most impactful way to deliver Bible lessons to your students is in a quick and powerful manner. When teaching a class a certain lesson, the actual teaching, should be limited to a half hour. If you go past a half hour you will notice that during your Bible lessons, the attention of your students will go right out the window.
Another quality that a great Bible book store has is the element of being organized. When you go into a bookstore and the shelves are organized in a clean manner it makes looking for reading material a lot easier and it can also be a lot of fun. When you have an idea of what you want to buy and read it is great to be able to know where in the Bible book store to look so you can get what you want in case you are in a hurry.
One thing ought to be clear to every Christian: Cosmology is still in infancy (in spite of all the advances in astronomy). Many of its ideas and hypotheses seem to contradict something or other in the Bible. But this is no cause of alarm because theories have contradicted the Bible time and again, but most of such theories have died out. Right now there are several alternate possibilities in cosmology, and if they are true then there is no conflict between Bible and Cosmology. But since the last word has not yet been said on these topics, let us accept them as what they are : theories and hypotheses which have not yet become established facts. And we do not know of any fact in cosmology or in astronomy which contradicts the Bible. This is not a trivial observations when one notes that there are several hindered direct references in the Bible related to astronomy and cosmology.
First a good Bible bookstore has a great location. Whenever I’m looking for great material to read and I have the opportunity to go to my local Bible bookstore is always a great place to go because of its great location. My favorite Bible bookstore is not located on a busy street and it is kind of out of the way. It’s quiet in its very serene and its surroundings. My favorite Bible bookstore is located in a very small shopping center a few towns over and it is located next to a great small caf? which has a great outside sitting area. So after I go to my favorite Christian Bible book store I am able to thumb through books that I just bought at the small caf?.
