Youth Worker Devotions: Not Down, (But Out of a Job)….

I’m pretty sure not a week has passed so far this year without me knowing of (personally), hearing of (through friends) or communicating with (on the net)a Youth Pastor who has been let go of by  his church.  Something tells me that morale in the ranks of youth workers is rather low.   This blog exists to encourage youth ministers, I hope it’s doing the trick.

WE ARE NEVER ALONE
Hebrews 12:1-3
Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, despising the shame and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  
WE ARE CARRYING GOD’S MESSAGE TO YOUTH
2 Corinthians 4:6-17
For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 
BUT we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves;

We Are:

  • Afflicted in Every Way,
    • But not Crushed;
  • Perplexed
    • But not Despairing,
  • Persecuted,
    • but not forsaken;
  • Struck down,
    • but not destroyed
Always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.  For we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh…

THEREFORE we do not lose heart, but through our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.
