A Young Man’s Passion

Sixteen-year-old Alex Haywood is on the keyboard singing his heart out.

Is it possible for a teenager in our culture to bawl  through worship? Not a girl, but a young man to cry as they are overwhelmed by the majesty and glory of God’s presence.  Yes, your son who loves video games and Marvel Comic  superhero movies can feel the presence of God.

Last Saturday night my son, Alex, came home after a REVO  service at World Revival Church and said he bawled through  a whole song. “I felt like God stepped down and that He was  with me mom,” he said “It was amazing!” He bawled as he  was leading worship.

Alex isn’t perfect but the bottomline is that he loves God. His older brother, 19-year-old Chris also came home and  shared about how he loved worshipping God during Young  Adults. He also helped lead worship.

I believe that teenagers and young adults want God. They  want to encounter something that’s bigger and not of this  world. I also believe my job is to make it easy for them to  find Him.

I’ve tried to make it easy for the 2 young men in my house  to find Him by living out my faith in front of them. They  know my struggles, my challenges and my craziness. But they  have seen me run to God over and over again.

I want to encourage you to make it easy for the kids,  teenagers and young adults in your life to find God. They  want Him. You don’t have to be super-spiritual or perfect.  You don’t have to be in the ministry. You don’t have to be  a leader.

You can be a mom, dad, aunt, uncle, grandpa, grandma, big brother, big sister or a friend and clear the way for them.  To make way for His invasion into their life, let Him  invade your life. Let Him be who He wants to be in your  life.

Let Him be king. Let Him be Lord. Let Him move upon your  life. He wants to move in your life.

One super-easy thing you can do is to invest in a young person’s life by sending them or telling them about the  Encounter Conference at World Revival Church. The  conference is on June 22-24 at World Revival Church. Tell  everyone teenager and young adult that you know about this conference.

A young man can be passionate for God. Don’t buy the lies  of the world that all they want to do is watch sports,  party and chase girls. Let’s be an example for them and  clear the way so they can have an encounter with God.
