Are YOU up to the challange?

One thing I really enjoy is going to youth night at our church. Our youth pastor, Jason, is always putting our youth to the challenge of being obedient Christians. An example he gave to them about being obedient was say your parents tell you not to write on the wall. So for 23hrs in the day you don't write on the wall, but for 1 hour a day you write on it. When it comes to the christian life it can be hard to be obedient all the time. However, I can tell you that Jason is always putting that challenge to every one around him. It makes me really conscious of what I am doing throughout the day. I know a lot of individuals whom think, OK, I been saved, baptised and now I am all good and go about their business. I think it is time for us to take a stand and be the obedient Christians Christ wants us to be.

Yea, Neecy!! That's what He had in mind for all of us. But I'm still working on that "23 hour obedient thing" and then 1 hour of disobedience! I believe most of us are that way.

But I stand with Paul in Philippians 3:12-14 when he talks about pressing onward and upward!

Loved seeing you and the boys! Looking forward to 'next time'.
