Although fall is my favorite season, I love spring too. Everything is fresh and new. Who doesn't like that?
This past Saturday, Brother RJ brought a message to the teens and used each letter of the word spring for a different point. Here is his outline:
Isaiah 43: 18,19 "Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert."
S - Salvation. It must be preached at all times.
P - Preparation. Prepare to know the Word of God.
R - Renovations. Time to renew promises and commitments that you have made to God. Put them into action! You can maintain those promises and commitments if you will trust Him to help you.
I - Inclination. our devotion needs to be more inclined to God's Word. He will show us the things we are seeking and speak to us when we are inclined to Him.
N - Nullification. There are things in our lives we need to kill. Things that slow us down from growing in God. Move those things out of the way. If we leave them there, others will see the deadness around us that is stunting our growth.
G - Godliness. It's time for us to have a Godliness about us. We are either of God or of the world.
