I hope you guys are awake and moving this DREARY morning. Only a couple more days in the school week, and then the end of the school year is quickly coming to an end. Keep a look out for our summer calendar coming out later this week. You do not want to miss out on all that is planned.
We loved having you guys at The Gathering last night, and if you missed it, then know that we truly missed you. Hopefully you will make it out for our last week of our GO! series, which finishes next Wednesday night.
Last night we debunked a myth, and really a lie, that many of us believe, which is that we cannot live for Jesus until we are much older. THAT IS NOT TRUE. We need to be willing to GO!: EVEN WHEN WE'RE YOUNG.
Scripture: Take some time this morning, or for some of you guys maybe this evening, and read through Philippians 2 today.
Observation: Take and make sure we notice that massive word used throughout the entire chapter. The word is HUMILITY. Make sure we notice v.4 it points us to figuring out what humility is all about. Make sure we notice v. 13. We see that we should not be living to fulfill our purpose, but rather seeking to fulfill the purpose God has for our lives. Make sure we notice. v.5-11. These show us what it means to be humble, but they also should strengthen our resolve to Go!: EVEN WHEN WE'RE YOUNG.
Application: Make this personal. Do not just flit with surface level depth, but rather dig deep. Ask yourself the hard questions. Do I "shine like stars in the universe" [v.15] when it comes to being a Christian, or am I all flamed out? What can I do to live for Jesus on a more consistent basis?
Pray: Pick one person to pray for today. Maybe it is a friend. Maybe it is a family member. Pray for them throughout the entire day.
