After our trip to the Army barracks, the team sat down to prepare for the next couple of days – pop up church and church on Sunday.
Friday night then saw some of the team heading along to youth group. Brain spoke about the resurrection of Jesus and the certainty that we have as Christians from that. The group then moved into discussion groups to talk about what Brian had said. From conversations that were had, it was clear that the youth had really heard and understood the gospel. One girl voiced concerns about her sin that made her still uncertain about whether she was forgiven. But this gave another precious moment to share the gospel of grace and to remember the assurance we have in Christ.
We can be certain of our forgiveness, because he died and rose for us.
Praise God for the youth group and the leaders who faithfully teach the youth the gospel of grace each week. Please pray for the youth, particularly this girl who struggles with assurance, that they would not only intellectually know the gospel, but that they would trust in Jesus and find comfort in the certainty his resurrection brings.
