This evening I was so blessed to be a part of PASSION for the High School Youth tonight. Here are a few pictures of the various rooms the leaders put together…
How wretched our world is, but how graceful God is for sending His son to save us from our sins!
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function,so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith;if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching;the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
Alive we are. Anew we are.
I feel helpless, grateful, have tears of joy and in awe (all at the same time) by believing Jesus’ mercy cost everything for us, and due to his ultimate sacrifice we are debt free, eternally. I wore one of the crowns on my head and thought, “this should have been me, but He paid for it. All of it.” I just wanted to cry and recognize how beautiful it is to have Jesus Christ showing humility in such an intense way. As I continually read His word to love my enemies, for me to be a disciple for Him, for me to share His immense love to others, and for expressing my deep burdens to Him.
In the end, His sacrifice gives me and YOU a clean slate.
The Lord be with you this week with your discovery to transform your heart for goodness of His heart and not man’s heart.
