“Don’t do this.”
“Don’t do that.”
“Avoid people like him.”
“Stay away from her.”
Have you ever felt like following Jesus is all about what you’re not supposed to do? Obviously, if you’re following Jesus, you want to avoid anything that will discourage you along the journey. But, what if there’s more to following Jesus than avoiding certain things? You might know what you’re not supposed to do. But, as a follower of Jesus, what exactly should you be doing?
As it turns out, God is on a mission.
He’s been on a mission since the beginning of time.
He’s in the process of redeeming and restoring His world.
It’s called the Missio Dei, the mission of God.
Amazingly, God invites us to participate with him on his rescue mission. He invites, calls, and even demands that his followers participate with him in his project of redemption and restoration. At CHRISTeens 2014, we’re going to spend the weekend exploring God’s mission for His world and, hopefully, exploring your role within that mission. We’ll be uncovering those things that God is calling us to do and be, not just the things he’s calling us away from.
See you in February!
