God places emphasis on His people resting, not just physically, but spiritually. The reality is that true rest can only come from Him.
Since it has been such a crazy week, this week’s list is a bit shorter. Here’s the top three things I’ve been reading (and listening to) this week.
Adult leaders provide accountability. We need people we can trust to watch out backs, help small issues stay small issues, and anticipate any concerns or needs of the group. There is no replacement for the encouragement adult leaders can provide in difficult times.
We can’t place our trust in a prayer to save us. We can’t place our trust in our parent’s faith. We can’t place our trust in growing up in church for our entire lives. It is only by placing our trust in Jesus as the author and perfecter of our faith that we can be saved.
This week’s articles include resources on teaching teens how to read their Bible, thoughts on how to lead your student ministry to be more than just games and a devotion, and an evaluation of missions and the next generation.
