Last night we began a new series called "Peer Pressure." During the time I've been in ministry, I've noticed that peer pressure doesn't always have to be negative. Positive or negative, students are agents of influence; therefor, students CAN have a positive influence on those around them. This is what we are encouraging our students to be.
One of the coolest things about this series is that it is a series of messages by students for students. That's right, students are bringing the Word! Last night, Tanner Thornton spoke about being light. He used an illustration by Christine Caine which simply stated that light is only effective in darkness. We as followers of Christ must seek darkness and shine the light of Christ.
I'm appreciative of Tanner's obedience to God in the proclamation of His Word. I'm looking forward to the next couple of weeks as two more students bring the Word.
It only takes one to change the world...imagine if we decided to be more than one!
