VCC Youth Update May 31, 2018

Hello everyone,

As we are on the cusp of June, the most important thing to be aware of is Hume 101. Our mandatory Hume informational meeting will be held on June 24th from 11:30-12:30 here in Burchett Hall.       We require every student going, and at least 1 parent or guardian per family to be in attendance, so that way we can go into the chaos that is Hume Lake preparation all on the same page.

 

Last night we talked about our Identity as people under grace. We looked at Ephesians 2:8-9 and talked about how easy it is to slip into a works-based salvation mindset as a Christian. The trap being as we are obedient to Christ, it is easy for pride to infiltrate our hearts and tell us that we are earning God’s favor, when the truth of the matter is we are obedient from a position of grace, not obedient in order to gain a position of grace (because that wouldn’t be grace at all). It is by the grace and power of God we are able to be obedient at all, and thus pleasing in His sight. I ended by challenging the students to come up with ways of reminding themselves daily of the grace of God and being daily thankful for the wondrous gift we have in Christ.
