Summer S.T.I.R. day twenty-two: Well dressed

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 22:10-11 "So the servants brought in everyone they could find, good and bad alike, and the banquet hall was filled with guests, he noticed a man who wasn't wearing the proper clothes for a wedding..."

T.eaching: You can't just follow a crowd - you must have ownership of your faith

I.mpact: I must not rely on other pastors or Christians.

R.esponse: Father, I want to be dressed correctly for You. I want to be prepared for the second coming. Continue to shape me and prepare me I pray. Love Brian.
