Good to be home . . .
This past weekend I joined the 7-12 grade students of South Suburban EFC for a weekend retreat at the Eagle Bluff Learning Center in Lansboro, MN. Bruce Bentley, friend and student pastor of South Suburban EFC, invited me to share God's Word with the students over four sessions. We looked at four key passages in Matthew 9. Here were the session topics:
Session 1: "A New Table: Sinners Party and Leap for Joy" Matthew 9:1-13
Session 2: "New Wine: I'll Drink to That!" Matthew 9:14-16
Session 3: "New Life: Hope for the Hopeless" Matthew 9:17-34
Session 4: "A New Calling" Matthew 9:35ff
O how sweet it was to worship with these students. They have hearts for the Lord and a growing heart to serve people!! May they be a generation who gives up everything to meet the needs of hurting people and to make the message of Jesus known to our needy world!
