This afternoon, Lisa Cotter reminded up that we live in a time when dating is really confusing. It is extremely difficult to navigate the dating world: there are no norms to dating anymore, and because of technology, as we scroll through our phones, we feel as if we’re connecting with someone, but in reality, we’re not. In order to connect with someone, you need that face to face interaction and we cannot get that through a screen. While texting is a wonderful and convenient thing, unfortunately it doesn’t let us see another’s emotion. We find it difficult to interpret what the other is saying and it can get confusing, so Lisa reminded us that “texting is for information, not emotion.”
The challenge this weekend is to make that ‘Amen’ we always say mean something. Brian challenged our attendees to look at all of the passion we have inside us this weekend and imagine if we took that to prayer. For many of us we’ve only scratched the surface of all God can do with us. The enemy wants you to be silent and doesn’t want you to do anything.
We are taught in this society that being a man of God is simply not good enough. We are afraid of people “bullying” us and are intimidated. We are called this weekend to stand up and be the man God wants us to be. However, we need people around us to give us strength and hold us accountable.
