Make no mistake, it’s still hard. Especially if the person rejecting the gospel is a friend or a family member. But we can find rest in the knowledge that our Savior is so much bigger than us. He is constantly working, moving in the hearts of people for His glory. Our job is to continue sharing.
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.

Parents and students alike, please be aware of what stories are being told, and even embellished.

As a result of knowing and beholding the gospel, our lives will be anchored in the call to proclaim the gospel message.
Honestly, isn’t this why Jesus came in the first place? He came to take care of the condition of our home and heart. He came to die on the cross so we don’t have to worry anymore about our sinful selves because he has forgiven us of our sin with the outpouring of his blood. Ultimately, Jesus wants our focus on him, not the worldly things that don’t matter or accompany us to eternity.
Our motivation for the mission of God is not simply that we know the gospel, but that we have beheld it ourselves. Our mission must first flow from our own time spent at the feet of Christ, listening to His teaching.
Though we will never live sinless, we can have confidence in Christ that peace lies within the folds of our surrender, as a helpmate, to God’s will for our lives. This season brought to light three foundational disciplines that demanded my attention.
