I am 18 years old and I will be attending Oral Roberts University in August. So excited!!!! I''''m trusting God through my walk. From what I''''ve seen and how many times I''''ve fallen, it''''s not about me but about Jesus Christ and his glory. Not my will but his. I''''ll follow jesus to the homes of the broken, follow jesus into the world, and meet the needs for the poor and the weary.
Be an R12 Christian R12Romans 12
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease where there are tongues, they will be stilled where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

I stopped to pick up Christ at the bus station. My Taxi was so full of junk that I didnt really have room for him to sit, so I opened up the trunk and invited him into my car. He jumped in, very excited to be on board. As we drove, I tried to ask him how his trip was, but couldnt make out what he was saying from inside the trunk. So I pulled over & rearranged some things in the car. I put a few things in the trunk and some things I could do without I just left on the side of the road. Now Christ had enough room to sit in the back seat. So we had a pleasant conversation and he began to tell me I was going the wrong way. He asked if he could sit shotgun and I thought that might be a good idea, because I hate back seat drivers. So I pulled over and again had take time to rearrange all the stuff in my car. Putting some stuff in the back seat and leaving the trash on the side of the road. (Hoping that the state patrol didnt catch me throwing that stuff in the ditch). Now, as he was directing me to turn around, I was confused. Was I totally lost? How did I make a wrong turn? I began asking Him alot of questions, “How is it that you know the way Jesus? Do you know how far off track I am? Where is it we are going anyway? Do you know how much further it is?” In the midst of my talking he raised his voice to shut me up. “You just missed another turn!” he said, “Stop talking and listen to my direction.” So now I was feeling pretty stupid and started apologizing. As I pulled over again to turn around, I humbly asked him if he would just take over the wheel. He smiled & said that just might be the easiest way to get there. We jumped out did a quick change of seats and we were off. Now He is driving and I can rest assured that we are going to end up wherever it is He wants to go.
So I was looking through some of the topics here, and I see that there seems to be alot of great people on here. I know alot of you are from the West Coast, but I was wondering if there were any people on here more so from the East Coast towards the Washington Metropolitan area? It would just be realy cool to connect with some Jesus loving people around my area you know?
Im a christian :] I love God and like every other teen i try to live right. Im going to be a senior and still have never had a boyfriend or even dated.Alot of my friends sometimes bug me but i dont give in. I feel that when the time is right God will send me someone.Does any one feel the same?
I love Jesus and I accept him as my savior. I am striving to live my life in a way that pleases God and glorifies him. But...I am also a lesbian. And I am very confused. I want answers but I dont think any person can give me answers. I think that only God can answer my questions and I pray that he does. I knew I was gay from a very young age. I have only this year come to know Jesus. I sincerely believe I was born gay. I believe it is just a part of who I am, like my eye color or my skin tone. But why would God allow me to be this way if he really thinks it is wrong? I love Jesus and I want to walk down the path of righteousness but being a lesbian is something I have tried to change in the past and yet I am still gay. How can it be so wrong when it feels so normal and right to me? How can I be straight when that feels so alien and wrong to me? I dont know. Im just very confused I guess.
Yes, like all of the other responces, Jesus loves you and he indeed cant stand sin, whether its lying, stealing, or any other sin. It would kind of be a contradiction if you say that youre a christian and that you were gay. Followers of Christ embrace truth and follow Jesus Christ, so when you follow him and see what he doesnt stand for and what he disagrees with and you Love Jesus soooo much and you accept what he did and lives for him, nothing else in this world will attract you. I suggest digging deeeeep in the word and asking God to take that homosexual feeling out. When the world says its okay to be gay, remember who you follow, and that you are NOT OF THIS WORLD, but of Jesus.
much love to you,
Whats your opinion? Which are you "for"?
Personally I am a strong creationist. The Bible says "In the beginning GOD CREATED the heavens and the earth.", so that is what I believe. And no, I do not believe that the seven days of creation were actually millions of years long or that God used evolution to create the world.
Theres simply too much evidence for creation to ignore. Our bodies are a fantastic example, with all the complex systems that work together perfectly to keep us alive.
you have a lot to say Alpha.
I personally believe that the big bang theory is flat out ridiculous, because it makes no sense. If the big bang theory happened, that would say that this world just happened by mistake and were just sitting here in a nothingless life waiting to die. I pick the God way. Why is it sooo hard to believe that an all knowing God created everything. Everyone wants proof, proof, and more proof. try to believe a little. Stop putting God in a box!!
Hey, everyone. Im just really needing some prayer from my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Im in high school, in fact, its my first year, Im a freshman. But Im really having a tough time staying strong in Christ all of the time. Mostly its just cussing that I have trouble with, itll slip out before I even have time to think, and that isnt the person I am, and certainly not the type of person I want to betray. I want to be that girl, that when they see me walk through the hallways, they see a Christian- a person who loves God with all of her heart. Not only that, when people talk to me, I want them to see his presence in my life. Please pray for me!
Thanks you so much for your time and support,
Hannah Grace <3
Im pretty sure you know the WWJD thing. Its kinda like that. "what would Jesus say" Youre young but not that young, you know to get in the word and see what exactly does God say about something. know that Jesus is working in you. try not to engage in conversations where you are tempted to curse. Many times when becoming a christian youve gotta be around people that are aware that youve given your life to Jesus. See if those friends are true. Show Jesus through your walk.
