Tonight at youth group i had the opportunity to speak with the teens about being authentic Christians who strive to honor God in every aspect of their lives. I really felt as I was leading the lesson tonight that God was speaking to several of the kids in the room. While I don’t know what issues they are dealing with that are keeping them from having an authentic testimony to their family and friends, I just sensed that God was convicting. I challenged the students at the end of the night to seek out an accountability partner who could challenge them to deal with issues they are struggling with and to trust that God is with them always and they don’t have to do life alone. So tonight as I sit here at home I have been thinking about our students and praying for them and ask you to pray for them as well. They have a chance to have powerful testimonies to their friends and family, pray that they will seek to honor God in every area of their life and their will be no doubt that they are authentic!
