God was my Rock and Redeemer today! I was able to be at work all day and stayed for the junior high and senior high youth ministry services. I thought about leaving early once the senior high service started but decided there was no reason to leave and I always love being around our youth, they keep me going! We had our summer camp speaker in to share tonight and he did an amazing job of making God's word so simple and true. II Corinthians 5:17-18 "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God,who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;" Simply put, if we have accepted Jesus, we should be living different lives and sharing Him with others. He has placed us where we are right now for a reason, "to share Him!" So simple, but it is so hard to grasp and do it. Wherever we are now, is our ministry!!!
Tonight, two 11th grade young ladies who have never made a commitment to Christ, nailed down their faith in Jesus. Jordan was able to share with one and I was able to share with the other. God is so good and faithful and what a blessing to see two lives transformed for His Kingdom. Please pray for Megan and Katy on this new journey they are on. Both are so excited and Jordan is going to disciple them.
I truly can't think of a better way than to end it by saying, "this is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
