Struggling

As a parent the biggest concern I deal with (and pray about) on a daily basis is my children’s relationship with God as they grow up. The idea that our kids might doubt, or turn away from God completely, isn’t something that’s easy to think about. But it’s important.  At some point our children are going to have to own their relationship with God. They will need to figure it out for themselves; they won’t be able to rely on our faith as their parents. I have heard it said many times by many pastors and teachers: “God is a father,...

Youth Group?

Dear Parents, Thank you for all you do every day to invest in the life of your teenager. I am sure at times you probably feel like an Uber driver (always picking them up and dropping them off somewhere), coach (helping them perfect their sport), tutor (working on homework with them), and guidance counselor (preparing them for the future) all wrapped in one. That is why with the insane busyness in the life of a teen and of a teen parent, it is so easy to let Youth Group attendance slip. It can be all too tempting to think,...

Victory

Do you know that right now regardless of what you are battling with, you have victory in Christ? 1 Corinthians 15:57 tells us: “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” In Christ our victory is sure, just as sure as Christ’s death and His resurrection. In fact, it is through His death and resurrection that we have the power to live in victory, and in that victory we should live in a constant state of praise to our victorious Lord and Savior. Another great verse to remember as we are in the...

Accelerate 2018 “Made New”

The Accelerate leadership team met recently to discuss all things Accelerate 2018. By the grace of God we were able to cover lots of information and we have carefully crafted a vision, theme, and events all centered around Jesus! Here is what the Lord has ministered to us as leaders and what He has planned for us for 2018 as a youth group. For the sake of transparency and continuity we thought it best to share this all in a Kerusso article! Our 2018 Accelerate Vision: “We are committed to making disciples of Jesus Christ and seeing the power...

He is Doing a New Thing

It is a new day and a new year. With a new year come new challenges, new decisions and new experiences. As we start this new year we all have ideas, goals, and things we would like to accomplish, but we are not alone. God is never-changing (Hebrews 13:8) and He has plans for your life and mine (Jeremiah 29:11). God is always working (John 5:17); even now behind the scenes He is working. And not only is He working behind the scenes, but He is also working in you (Philippians 2:13). In Isaiah 43:19 the Lord is speaking...

  • Methodology Or The Master?
    Indulge me for a few moments. I just can’t seem to grasp this “magic wand” kind of Christianity. You know the kind where I “command” the God of Eternity to do something, and He just does it! Every single time, the same way. You know what I mean: “If you do this, say this, then […]
  • Following Him
    Matthew 13:54-58 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and […]
  • The Living God
    Thirty times in Scripture, God reveals Himself as “the living God”. Fifteen times, in fact, in each Testament. When He uses the word “living” to describe Himself, He is conveying to us that He is active in the present tense or, simply put, “I AM.” He is actively full of grace, love, mercy, and truth. […]
  • Dealing With Self-Righteousness
    Romans 2:1-3  Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou thatjudgest doest the same things. But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things. And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest […]
