The Ways to Step 5

I suppose you are bored of looking at the same post day after day. Sorry, The ol' youth pastor has been stinking busy as of late. Well if you want to call vacation busy.

Step 5 is being a core member of The Revolution. Which is really just a solid Christian who is consumed with encouraging people in all situations. How are you going to get to that place? Here is the equation we talked about last week at youth group. Experience + Knowledge + Character = Strong founded Christian who has positioned themselves to receive the gifts God wants to give to them. Those gifts are to be used to encourage the church and as a witness to unbelievers. Experience + friendship with the world (doing nothing) = a shallow immature Christian who is a victim of life situations. They have no ability to influence the world except to portray Christians as complaining, confused and weak. Tossed here and there by life's struggles.

What will you be? Have experience with God + apply the knowlegde and wisdom received from the Bible + make choices that develop a strong Godly character. That is the equation to true spiritual freedom and influence. Enjoy your weekend.
