The Gift of God's Word

Posted by Scott Boss on

God is up to something big in the lives of our teens. One of my great passions in youth ministry is calling students to return to the Scriptures in order to hear God's voice in their lives. We only have so many minutes with students throughout the week, but kids who are immersed in Scripture finds themselves listening and hearing the voice of God throughout their entire week.

This is Where it Gets Real

One Wednesday night I had a great conversation with a teen who wanted to know, "How many times would God forgive me? Is it possible for my life to change? I'm searching for the peace that you keep talking about on Wednesday nights."

Long after group had ended we talked, and together we lifted these things up in prayer. At the end of this, I told him that to know the kind of peace he was looking for, he needed to encounter our living God by reading His Word. He agreed, but said he didn't have a Bible.

Because of the generosity of someone in this congregation, I got to put a Bible in his hands with the hope that he can encounter a love that will reach deep into his heart. I look forward to seeing that love take root as I continue to walk and talk with him. 

Bibles given to teens in our High School Ministry were provided through a First Pres Foundation endowment fund. Learn more about the First Pres Foundation >>
