It is teams like this that inspire me and get me going.
Give your life to something significant
Jesus indicated the importance of offering even one cup of water to someone in need as being significant…every believer has the ability to touch someone in some way to further the love of the Father and power of the Gospel.
Thank you for your blog and to those who feel they “cannot” do or that they do only a “little”….you are blessed when you do a “little” and remember that we worship the God who CAN!
Our lives are not our own, we have been bought with a price.
I have been a stay at home mom for over 25 years, and given my life to my family. I am entering into a new season, where I have more time to give. To give more of myself, to the calling God has on my life in this new season.
I want to be poured out as a living sacrifice for Jesus. I want to give me life to things eternal. I want to give my life to the Kingdom of God, where He goes I want to go, what He does I want to do. Seeking the Lord on what that looks like.
Thanks for all you do Seth, for the Kingdom.
“That the Lamb may receive His reward, through me”
After a lengthy excursion this morning on the net through this world/culture: from an article on China’s unbridled rape of not only its country (increasingly turning the continent into a dust bowl) but Africa and South America, to the piece about the purported 78% of young people today participating in hook-ups – casual sexual encounters with no commitment – I landed on your blog.
Another “arid” and unjust situation and it is young people who are committing their lives to do something. Wow.
Thank you for bringing us this story and others like it that are salt and light and a clear counterpoint to this world.
To answer your last question: I have been investing in young people, too, in the last seven years of operating my boarding house in Oregon. My influence has been small and I have only touched a few compared to the many you have invested in, but I pray for God’s multiplication of each and every seed I have sown with love and abandon. There is nothing on earth like investing in young people. Nothing. Without doubt, the biggest blessing of my life after a)Christ and b)my own two children.
