Revolution Cry is gearing up for another trip to New York City and NYSUM this April. We are looking for several young people who want to serve the less fortunate. The last time we went, we had a powerful time. We did not want to come home. Once you get a taste of living for Jesus, you feel so fulfilled and alive. I hope we have many young people willing to step out and "live it." Check out the video below from our last trip.

God Bless,

Becoming Disciples

God calls us to GO out and MAKE disciples. Go. MAKE. The Great Commission. These are action words. So, I know I have to DO something. I suppose I am trying to make disciples as a youth leader. But the youth that I am (hopefully) impacting should be doing the same. So, maybe my job is to do more than teach God's truth, but to teach them to do the same.

Let's do this!

Jesus Is the Vine, We are the Branches

From the looks of last week's poll, most of the poll takers consider themselves to be warm Christians. That's awesome. And it's no coincidence, especially if you are praying and reading the Word on a regular basis.

Jesus said
, "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples." (Jon 15: 5-8)

His words are true. We must "remain in Him" if expect to grow. That is, if we are not connect to the Vine, we won't bear fruit. We can't do it on our own. We can't even expect our prayers for others to really work unless we are completely attached to Jesus.

Are you praying for a friend? Jesus said, "If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you."

I just love how Jesus uses His creation to explain His nature.

Life is Temporary


Is there someone in your life who has treated you badly and you just can't find the strength to forgive them? I know how you feel. But consider how Jesus treated His crucifiers. He said, “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34). In Matthew 1, 21-35 we read one of Jesus' parables. In short, it says that God hays forgiven us for our sins against Him. So, we need to forgive those who sin against us. You say, "They don't deserve it." Maybe not, but neither do we. I believe Joyce Meyer said that unforgiveness is like drinking poison and hoping your enemy dies from it. Don't waste time. Forgive.
