Someone next to you needs to hear your voice.
Perhaps you don’t already know this, so I will speak it plainly:
Someone needs you.
You know people that I don’t know. You sit beside people that I do not sit beside. You have influence in the lives of people around you, whether you know it or not.
When you speak hope, hope shines.
When you speak Life, Life shines.
When you speak Christ, Christ shines.
There are people in this world who will never open a Bible, and people who may hear the name of Jesus but do not know the freedom He offers, the power of the resurrection to lift guilt and shame and all the junk of life.
Your pressures and struggles are different than mine. Youth and young adults have pressures and struggles that I can imagine, I can talk about from my experience, but ears aren’t quite as open to my voice in the past tense. You have the benefit of the present. You have the benefit of, “I’ve been there. I am there. We’re in it together.”
In today’s podcast we’ll discuss some unique yokes of young adulthood and why “in it together” matters more than you might think.
