What is something you see people doing wrong but they think they are doing it right?
working out, driving, cooking, make up, hashtags..
So often times people think they are doing things the “right way” when they are actually doing it the wrong way. What I love is that the Bible lays it out for us what is the “right way” and what is the “wrong way.” Too often people look at heaven and hell the wrong way, but Jesus wants everyone to know the “right way.”
Why are there so many different views on how to get to heaven?
The world has twisted what Jesus intended for us to know about heaven. Many people believe that you just have to be a good person and you’ll go to heaven, but who decides what a good life looks like? And what is the point of living a “good life” if you are not living for Jesus? The idea of a “good life” getting you to heaven is an idea that we can EARN heaven, and we can’t. It is a gift from God.
MATTHEW 7:21Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.
What does a relationship with Jesus look like?
The verse says it plainly, “he who does the will of My Father.” That begins with a relationship with Jesus. You have to have a relationship with Him to hear the Father’s voice and to know the will of the Father. If that is not you, tonight can be your night!
If you have a student who wants to receive salvation for the first time, you can follow this prayer: Thank you Jesus for dying for me. I no longer want to be on the broad path, I want to walk the straight and narrow. I’m sorry for my sins. Today I give my life to you. In Jesus name, Amen.
If a student has made a decision to follow Christ, they can text “decision” to 77453 and your Youth Director will follow up with them.
