Youth Group Blog

I know that many of you follow Ashley's blog...but if not here is the address to our new youth group blog.

Camp was the most wonderful adventure. I had the opportunity to teach one of the groups for our family group bible study. It made me realize how much I miss the class room. if you currently read your bible day--make it a point this week to look at the verbs or the action words. It is amazing how they illuminate what we as Christan should be doing. Another thing I had the kids do that I am going to use in my prayer journal. 3-2-1

3 praises for the day
2 people who need to know Jesus
1 question - Lord, what do you want me to do for you today? IF you are a night time studier you may want to change it to what did I do to further the Kingdom of Christ today?

I actually have watched the power of Christ make a radically transformation in child's life since he has accepted Christ as his Saviour. Because of this others are coming to know Christ. I think this has been especially exciting for me because most of the people I have seen come to know Jesus were raised in church and basically acted, talked and behaved similar to their previous standard. This person's attitude, language, behaviors, you name it --- made a "flip". If you do not know this ultimate POWER, please let me take this moment to share Christ with you.

Admit--that you are a sinner. We are have all sinned and fall short of the glory God. He wants us to repent and turn from our sinful nature Romans 3:23 Repent means to completely change directions-- make an 180 degree turn. Ask the Lord to forgive you and guide you. For the Wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans

Believe--that Jesus is God's son. For everyone that calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved Romans 10:13 The gift of salvation is free. All that he ask is that we call upon Him. He does not have a love that is based on conditions. He died a sacrificially death so that you may have eternal life with him in paradise. Our relationship with Him is not based on the works, the money we give or the perfect life we live, but that we yield our life to him. IF you truly seek Him, you will surely find Him. Seek him through prayer and reading the Bible.

Confess--Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. That if you confess with your mouth that "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9. When we confess it literally means to come clean or admit, we ask the Lord to take the burden of sin away. To accept Christ as our Lord and Saviour, you may say a simple prayer like this:

Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner,
And need your forgiveness.
I believe that you died for my sins.
I want to turn from my sins
I invite you now to come into my heart and life.
I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Saviour.
In Jesus Name ,
If you prayed this prayer, I encourage you to seek a local church. Talk with the preacher about your decision and make a public profession of your faith. Become active in church, read the Bible and pray daily. May God Bless you.


  1. Kimberly,
    What an awesome post! If only one soul reads this and gets saved, They will spend an eternity in heaven what a praise that will be !!!!!!!!

  2. Kimberly I am crying so hard as I type this...Little did I know that several hours ago when I was reading your post and leaving you a comment did I know that my sister was going to call me and want me to explain to her 7 year old how to be saved. I love you and thank you so much for these words!!! God's timing is always perfect!

  3. Well Kimberly I am sorry to post so many times today. I called your mother earlier for your # but couldn't reach you. I just wanted you to know that I will be forever greatful for the words you put in print today. Not that I 'didn't' know how to lead someone to Christ or that my sister didn't know how to. She had already talked to her and told her she had to admit she was a sinner and pray and ask Jesus to come and live in her heart. She had just called me (obviously we both think it was a God thing) to see if I had anything to add. Had I not just read your blog, it may have taken so much longer for those things to come back in my mind to remember everything. It was a very emotional conversation and it only reminds me again how inadequate I am and how much more studying I need to be doing of God's word. I just got off the phone with my sister and she said her daughter prayed and accepted Christ. The praise goes to God. He is using you in such a mighty way. Thanks Kimberly!! One more soul that the devil can't touch now.

  4. The A,B,C's... love it... everytime I hear them I think of Vacation Bible School! :) So glad camp went well.
