Hello Central Assembly! :) I am so excited to be able to contribute to the amazingness that is happening here on this blog! Today, I just wanted to share a little bit about what is happening at Mainstream Youth! :)
For about the past two years, the month of March has traditionally been dubbed "Spirit Month"! During Spirit Month every Wednesday of March is a themed night. I must say that I truly enjoy this month at Mainstream; we get to dress up in correlation with the theme of the night! This year the themes are centered around identity. We started off the 6th of March with Superhero Night; Pastor Nate brought a good word about keeping our focus UP towards Christ! The 13th was Princess Knight (Haha, did you catch that?). Candice, one of our leaders, brought a word about keeping ranks as Royal Warriors and fighting together against the forces of evil! (That is so cool, huh!) Both of these powerful messages centered around claiming the identity of Christ over our lives and stepping into HIS promises!
This Wednesday (the 20th) is Nationality Night and I have the privilege of sharing with the students. I am excited to be able to use my ethnicity as a sermon illustration! Haha, I am only half joking, and I hope that you laughed! :) God has been showing me some amazing truths about my true nationality! I am an American citizen by birth, but Spiritually my citizenship is from a Kingdom, a nation, not of this earth! (Philippians 3:20)
I am believing that this Wednesday the Lord will establish the truths of HIS Kingdom in the hearts of the students that walk thru our doors. The Lord has ordained HIS people as a ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, a HOLY NATION belonging to HIM! (1 Peter 2:9-10) Our nationality, our citizenship is that of royalty! Our inheritance is found in a Celestial Kingdom! The Kingdom of the Most High God! The moment we take a hold of that truth the way we live, see life, and see ourselves is forever changed!
Please join me in praying for the students that will walk thru our doors this Wednesday. Pray that their hearts will be receptive to the truths God so passionately wants to engrave upon their hearts! Pray that HIS people will take on HIS identity!
I am so looking forward to sharing with you as HIS Kingdom continues to be advanced! :)
For HIS Glory,
