Summer S.T.I.R. day five: Don't just look at it

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 says "Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), 2 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 5:1 "And seeing the multitudes He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him.

T.eaching: What Jesus saw compelled Him to move - and He moved up.

I.mpact: I fully recognize that what I see must compel me to move - both in the real of communication and helping people, and in the realm of moving up - being closer to God and lifting the lid of my calling.

R.esponse: Thank you. Thank you for awakening my Spirit, for answering prayers, and giving me the opportunity to go up and meet with Yu and communicate more clearly. I love You Jesus. Love Brian
