We HAD to show this to our students because much of this semester we have gone through the motions and we have created a false fire. We have become our own idols and to be frank, if you walked through our doors, you wouldn’t really see much difference between us and the world. We started looking more like the world than Jesus and we presented the challenge that this has to stop! We are drawing a line in the sand. We have come to the understanding that in order to really follow Jesus, our youth group may shrink in numbers, but in spiritual might and through watering seeds of faithfulness, God would grow His army…not programs, not slick worship, not my teaching, not cool stuff. So, we had to show this video. It’s really nothing new. It’s getting back to seeing and calling it what the real problem is.
I remember watching this video two or three years ago during the bad ice storm that kept us from church and I was looking for something for my wife and I to watch since we couldn’t go to church. I ran into this video and it rocked my world!!!! I am praying it will knock you to your knees in repentance and will encourage you to renew the joy of His salvation in your life. If you sense after watching the video, you need to talk, please contact me through this blog and I would love to have coffee with you and talk about these things.
