L-Live Finally, we must live for Christ. Our deepest desire should be simply to please God regardless of who is watching.  I have a friend that works at the United Center and was recently the big Prince concert.  During the concert, he witnesses a young lady taking pictures. He watched as security told her several times that she was not allowed to take pictures and she continued to hold up her phone taking pics, sticking her tongue out at security. As the concert continued the lady was EXTRA loud and wild, dirty dancing on strangers, half undressing, etc. As we’re sitting at the High School football game, his mouth drops open and he says, “Oh my God!”

He spots this same young lady! He HAD to go let her know that he saw her at the concert.. Your momma and daddy may not always be watching, but if you claim Christ to be your savior best believe someone is watching you. God is watching you. Live life in a way that would please Him at all times. You never know what kind of influence you have on others. Everything else will fall into place if we seek HIM, not just the things he can do for us but seek him because he’s God, because of the things he’s already done.  I know as young people you wrestle and you deal with being accepted, being loved, being popular, sexuality and all of the many things you deal with. The enemy would like you to believe that you are confused about your sexuality, that you’re unlovable so you should accept any kind of treatment from others. That is NOT what the word of God says about your life. You are kings and queens.   God wants you to be free and become whole in him. Live for him. Live for Christ he will make a new and improved you.  2 Corinthians 5:17(NIV) says “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” Not to say that these things will leave you alone, but if you truly get Real and RENEW your mind, EMBRACE the word of God, ALIGN yourself up with his word and LIVE for him,  God will carry that weight for you. You won’t have to bare it alone. There’s no situation so bad that the Lord won’t help you through.
