Being a Christian is so much more than just going to Church and trying hard to be good. Being a Christian means Jesus is totally in charge of our lives. The Bible even says we die, and Jesus lives in us!
What does that mean for a junior high student? It means their thoughts, their habits, their belongings, their wildest dreams—everything about them—is no longer what they live for. Instead, they have Jesus living in them.
When we live for ourselves, we get prideful, angry, scared, bored, and even plain mean. But when Jesus lives through us, we are filled with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control.
At MIX 2023 we will learn what it means to die to Christ but nevertheless have Him alive in us.
I am crucified with christ: Nevertheless I live; Yet not I, but Christ lives in me: And the life which i now live in the flesh i live by the faith of the son of god, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
