“Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.” Psalm 139:7-8 David had a deep understanding about what it meant to be loved by God. Here was a man who accomplished great [...]
“But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” Genesis 4:7 Sin. We all do it. We all have those areas in our lives where we fail to live up to God’s standard. Where we put our own desires [...]
Resurrection Sunday was never meant to be about celebrating something that happened, but something that happens. Every minute of every day in the lives of those who follow Christ.
Maybe everything feels dark and empty and there is just no hope for things to get better.
But remember, Sunday is coming.
If we want to do big things for God, if we want to make a lasting impact in the lives of those around us, we need to develop our character.
Consider it pure joy whenever you face trials of many kinds, because those trials and hardships and nights you find yourself crying out to God with seemingly no answer are producing in you the character and maturity to walk into all God has for you.
When we came to Christ, when we gave our lives to Him, when we chose to turn from our sin and follow this God who dwells among us, something powerful happened.
We were given a new identity.
Brought into God’s family.
And changed completely.
We became new.
our worth and value aren’t based on what our families say, they aren’t based on what our friends say, our sense of love and acceptance were never meant to come from our friends or acquaintances say about us.
We are loved by the King, and He will never reject us.
Repentance isn’t just a contrived act of feeling sorry.
It isn’t about just apologizing and asking for forgiveness.
Repentance is turning away from the sin and shame and darkness, and turning back to Him.
Sin, left unchecked, will lead to death.
Death of our hearts.
Death of our minds.
Death of our reputation.
Death of our relationships and dreams and character.
Death of everything that we hold dear.
Our mission is to ignite youth, young adults and university students to passionately pursue Christ and impact their world for Him.
More than just a conversion, we desire to see young people become dedicated disciples of Christ.
