S.T.I.R. day thirteen: Micro-Macro

All Summer long our youth ministry, Switch, is going "GOSPELICIOUS". We reading through all the gospels in 90 days and each day we S.T.I.R. it up based on the one verse that really hit us hard that day. 2 Peter 3:1-2 says "Beloved, I now write to both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior..." so that's where we got the STIR idea from - that reading Scripture should "stir" us up. Enjoy!

S.cripture: Matthew 13:3 "The Kingdom of Heaven is like yeast used by a woman making bread. Even though she used a large amount of flour, the yeast permeated every part of the dough."

T.eaching: The Kingdom of Heaven can do more than people think.

I.mpact: I must operate in faith expecting more impact.

R.esponse: Father, You sent Jesus to bring Your Kingdom to earth and I am so thankful. I pray that the effectiveness of Your Kingdom be displayed in the lives of our students who so desperately need You. I love You. Love Brian
