This week we begin our newest sermon series, Proof: A Study Through First John. We could not be more excited to start working our way through this letter!
Henderson Hills Baptist Church Student Ministry exists to bring glory to God by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with our students and by leading them to walk in Christ-centered community. We seek to partner with parents as we serve, love, and teach our students to cherish the local church while pursuing personal holiness.
Our desire is for this blog to serve in partnership with our ministry; to aid in walking alongside our students as they go deeper into the lessons they learn on Wednesdays and Sundays, and to answer any remaining questions. We hope this blog will be two-fold in serving our students. First, that it will guide in preparing hearts and minds for the times we are gathered as the church and, second, that it will serve in fueling us during the times we are spread throughout our schools and communities.
This life is not a game to be played; strategizing how to get what we want in order to build something that is perfect and good. The Game of Life was never meant to be my story. Christ is my story. And there is an urgency that plagues my heart for you to know Christ so that you, too, will experience God’s promise. Friend, what will be your story?
Here is the resolution of the story of redemption that began in Genesis 3 as we bear witness to the fully redeemed creation of the New Jerusalem as revealed in Revelation.
There are so many wonderful opportunities to share His story with those who don’t know about Jesus’ victory on the cross. We must be willing to make room at the table for those who do not know His story and call them to join us on our journey.
While we know this transition will be hard, we want to extend a call to action. Our hope is that we would take this change as an opportunity to invite more friends and peers to camp, allowing the Gospel to go forward in even more lives so that even more people may experience what we have already come to know and love through camp.
The falling action comes to a close as the foreshadowing of the resolution is proclaimed. We see the resolve of the whole story as we look toward the hope and joy that is now established.
We share the moments that are nearest and dearest to us, the moments that affect us, that excite us and the moments of which we are most proud. Yet, how do we, as Christians who claim to know the greatest story ever told, show this to be true in a world where the most read stories are the ones told in 20 second spurts on our Instagram and Snapchat?
The falling action pushes forward as we establish the root of God’s final and coming redemption. Here we will shift from the rules of the former covenant to the root of the final covenant.
It always amazes me how a day that should have been just a normal day becomes one that will forever be remembered.
We have finally reached the climax of the whole story. Here is where we see the rising action come to a head as the promised deliverance in Genesis 3 is finally fulfilled in the ultimate, atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross and His resurrection from the dead – defeating death.
