Summer S.T.I.R. day nine: Never Quit

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 you...in 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 9:27-28 "After Jesus left the girl's home, two blind men followed along behind him, shouting, "Son of David, have mercy on us!" They went right into the house where he was staying, and Jesus asked them, Do you believe I can make you see?"

T.eaching: It appears that Jesus didn't stop for them when they first called out, but they refused to be denied, and proved to Jesus their passion for Him.

I.mpact: I MUST continually cry out for revival, healing, salvation of souls and more - for God is looking for faith-filled, consistant, non-stop asking.

R.esponse: Dear Jesus, I ask now for your involvement and supernatural power to be release in Jennifer and in the students you have entrusted to us. Lord release your love and power I pray. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
