It's Friday afternoon as I'm writing this. Most of you are in school, at least physically. (Who knows where you are mentally??) As I think back to Wednesday night I can't help but smile at the memories of the evening.
Right in the middle of my teaching time with Blast I had a thought similar to this, "What am I doing trying to teach teenagers and using the Trinity as an example?? What made me think this is a good idea?" Talk about a panic moment. Thankfully, that doubt was only there for a moment. After praying and thinking through the summer about where God wants to lead us, I'm pretty confident that we are going in the right direction. I mean how can we go wrong by looking to God as our example?.
But probably the greatest, most frequent thought I had during and after Blast/Ignite is just how much you guys mean to me. I, and the other leaders, are ridiculously blessed by God to be able to be a part of your lives. I bet you'd be surprised at how often I and the other leaders think and pray about you. And you'd be completely shocked if you knew how God (the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit) loved you. So last Wednesday was a good start to what's going to be a great year.
If you're looking for some examples of how Jesus relates to the Father and the Holy Spirit, check out
John 14 and John 17. It's good stuff.
Each week two blogs will be posted for Blast and Ignite.
