Eyes on Jesus || Friday

My hubby and I visited my brother-in-law's church youth group in December. He is the youth pastor and was teaching the MN teenagers about the core tenets of a genuine walk with God and how effective a youth group can be if it embraces them. I found it incredibly inspiring. How incredible would it be if every Christ-centered organization/group operated like this?

1.  We are known by what we are for not by what we are against. 
2 Corinthians 5:11-21, Philippians 4:4-8, Luke 15:1-7, John 13:17
2.  We are the most loving and servant-oriented people the city knows about. 
Matthew 25:31-46, I Corinthians 13, John 13:1-17, John 15:13, Romans 5:8
3.  We are passionate about knowledge and communication of truth. 
Proverbs 4:7, James 1:5, John 18:36-38, Ephesians 4:15, 1 Peter 3:15
4.  We are a family - we rally around each other.  
John 13:35, The Bible calls us brothers and sisters over 50 times in the NT alone, Galatians 6:2, James 5:16, I Corinthians 12:24-26
5.  We believe God can change any life at any time - we will relentlessly seek out those far from Him. 
Ephesians 2:1-10, Luke 15:3-7, John 14:14
6.  We will always be pushing ourselves to be more like Christ - there is never an end until we are united with Him 
Philippians 3:12-14, Hebrews 12:1-13
7.  We are Holy Spirit empowered world changers with a mission every day we exist. 
John 16:7, John 14:12-14, 1 Corinthians 3:16, Romans 8:9-11, 2 Timothy 1:7

Question for ya.
How would you feel about winning $100 to Karen Kane? 
Pretty good? Yah, I would too.

What a pretty outfit! The dress is cute and adding the yellow necklace creates a nice color-contrast. The colored tights are exactly the right shade and those shoes! The pumps are gorgeous. They could have their own fan-club!

I used to work in youth ministry and agree wholeheartedly with your comments on youth groups! :)
