Knowing Christ, Growing in Christ, Going with Christ, Showing Christ

What would you tell your 25 year old self about God?

A couple of Sundays ago we spent the morning reflecting on what God in his Word has to say to Young Adults today. We saw that for the disillusioned, the disconnected and the dislocated there is a wonderful saviour, Jesus. As we enjoy life with Jesus he helps us to step out of childhood whilst keeping our childlike dependence on the Father. You can listen back to that sermon here.

In the week leading up to that Sunday I sent out a survey to ask the church family about their experience of Young Adulthood. There were some wonderful answers shared, but due to timing I couldn’t include everything. There is one set of responses that I’ve asked permission to include here. The question was “What would you tell your 25 year old self about who God is?”. Their answers were a wonderful set of one sentence testimonies. My hope is that as you read, that you too will give thanks to God and reflect on what he has shown you of himself since your youth.

He is a loving Father, totally trustworthy who wants your life to be full of joy in Him.

If God is for you, how who be against you? Speak to the Lord every day and bring every worry to him as your way ahead becomes clear, but always remember also to thank him for each day as well.
