Last night Tony Howeth, the deputation director for MWBM, preached the evening service of Vision Baptist Church. As to be expected from this great preacher it was an exciting, emotional, “warm and fuzzy” service that everyone present enjoyed greatly.
His main text was.. Philippians 1:7 Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart;
He showed us the importance and way to get people on our hearts. It really struck home with me as a youth worker. There our many teens that I want in my Sunday school class, in our church, and at our events that are not in my heart. If I spent more time keeping these teens “in remembrance” I would be a better minister to them when I see them. I have a tendency to think about programs more then people. I am especially quilty of not have the teens who have Christian families on my heart. I just think they have more going for them then most teens their age so I do need to be as concerned about them.
Today to help me get this teens on my heart I will keep them in remembrance. I have listed their names and will spend time praying over them, thinking about them, and calling them through out this week. I encourage you to do the same!
