We miss you, children!
Be good to Uncle Bruce this morning as he’s preaching what God’s laid on his heart. Remember what the note said last Wednesday? Well do that (see the table for the “leftovers” if you weren’t here Wednesday.)
I really believe God can use the Teens of Faith to bring revival. If you carry on what God did in your heart at camp, you can’t help but spread that fire. Remember last week, though? Jehu started great, but he
1) didn’t give up sin, and
2) disregarded God’s law.
Don’t let that be you. Stay close to God. Have a passionate hunger to learn from God’s Word. When I was a freshman or sophomore and really started “getting it” spiritually, I bought books, I read devotionals on my own, I asked questions… basically, I’m saying this: Don’t be the type of person that always NEEDS encouragement. Drive yourself. Let God be so real to you that you can’t get enough. And do that on your own.
Grow yourself to the point of encouraging others rather than always needing encouragement. God wants to do something with you, and he will if you let Him.
With school starting this week, let God shine through your life, so that you can be salt and light. Pray for us… we’re praying for you!
