2007 Youth Retreat Update 2

Author: sethskim  |  Category: Visits

Last night I talked about laying down some of the hindrances in our lives so that we can be “all in.” It was a powerful time of the Holy Spirit ministering to the deep parts of our lives. Areas of addictions, shame and bitterness were confronted. It is amazing how Satan uses these things to hinder people from being all that God wants them to be.

This morning we talked about being the “community” of faith and how it becomes a powerful testimony and a witness to the world. We had the various youth group get together to pray for one another. Tonight, as we are getting ready to close out the retreat, I am going to talk about being a non-conformist generation in order to bring forth a revolution in this world.

Today was crazy with all the snow. But whenever I see a big snowstorm like this, I am constantly reminded of that passage in Isaiah where God says, “’Come now, let us reason together,’ says the LORD. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool” (Isa 1:18).

This is what happens when you wear glasses and step inside from the cold – no joke!
