This is a very cool story about the influence of one of our SWITCH leaders, brought to you through text messages:
March 25th, 11:12pm–Thursday
Leader: That voice that you heard inside of you last night is the Holy Spirit convicting you and giving you advice on what to do. Next time you hear it, obey it and each time you obey it, it will get easier to live a godly life.
March 26th, 11:12pm–Friday
Student: Wow. I have seriously thot about what u told me. I was just offered EX (extacy) and and I was just about to take it and I heard that voice. I flushed it down the toilet. My friend asked me why and I told him that God spoke to me. He laughed. But I know I don’t have to explain myself.
I remembered that message at SWITCH too and I figured out who my true good influence is. YOU. I thought about what you would do in this situation.
Leader: I’m proud of you brother! This is what it’s all about. You have no idea what’s going through your buddy’s mind. Even though he laughed at you, your actions will make him think. God will continue to test you then bless you and use you for his glory! Keep up the good work and call/text me for anything!
This is what it’s all about. One leader’s influence on one student is changing this student’s life for Christ. There is nothing better than pouring your energies into someone who is searching for their identity in Christ. When you do, you get to be a part of shaping this person into who God created them to be.
I encourage you, please continue to pray for our students. God is moving.
