Summer S.T.I.R. day twenty: Serve

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 20:26-27 "But among yyou it should be quite different. Whoever wants to be a leader among yo must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must become your slave."

T.eaching: God looks at hearts not titles

I.mpact: Another reminder that God looks behind the scenes.

R.esponse: Father, on a day like today where I have liberty to do whatever I want, I pray that I would honor You. I love You. Love Brian
