With our 180JV (5th-8th graders) up at Washington family ranch past antelope. The camp’s theme is Hearing the Holy Spirit. I’m sharing this morning on my story of listening and obeying the voice of God.
As I watched these teenagers and almost teenagers worship last night I was struck by the present potential of this group to be powerfully used by God, not 5 years from now, but right now. Every Christ Follower has huge potential to be change agents in our culture based solely on the fact that the Holy Spirit lives within us and His voice can activate the miraculous happening any one of us at any time.
So imagine a group of young people who truly hear the voice of God, right now, and act on it. What might God tell them to do? Think about it. We way too often look at our children as just that, children. But God doesn’t see an inexperienced child. He sees a willing vessel to do what He says with more abandon and more obedience than most of us adults can muster the courage to do.
Oh God, do what you want through the “children” of Westside Church.
