JUST A NOTE | Thoughts from Pastor Scott Owens

WNL.17

“Making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ” - Ephesians 1:9

Do you ever struggle when the Bible talks about the mystery of his will… his Word… the parables, whatever? I mean God come on, can we just be taught what the secret is and do that? For answers to those questions look no further than our own student(s). When the truth is told to your student(s) ’quite clearly’ is it clear what choice they will make? If there is a right decision to be made do they make it clearly 100% of the time? Yeah, mine neither!

I have had a couple of my children tell me they want to follow Christ, but are they really seeking Him now or just telling me what they think I want to hear. Below is a link to an article that I have pulled from The Gospel Coalition. It is a good article, but I would ask that you discern these points heavily. How do you discover if your student follows Christ? Just like a conversation about anything I encourage you to read this and discuss.

Thank you for letting me minister to your students and alongside them in reaching their friends, our community and the world for His glory
