Think about this story, when three teenagers made an impact on the culture of an entire city through their convictions! I believe that this can happen today through the students that we stand before each week! The students that we are able to work with will be, for better or worse, the cultural architects of tomorrow.
Students will be the...the artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, authors, dreamers, politicians, preachers, missionaries, teachers, and athletes of tomorrow. God help us to teach them that they can use their gifts for more than just shallow, fleeting self-aggrandizement. They can use their lives for the GLORY OF GOD! Their life can be used to spread the GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST to the ends of the Earth!
We can be much more than just merely relevant to our current culture. We can actually be part of creating the culture of tomorrow if we have the courage to be what God has called us to be.
"You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
Let's create culture!
Now your turn...any thoughts?
