Adam’s Devotional – November 15-21, 2018

From Adam…

I hate to admit it, but it’s true.  It’s so true that it’s a little depressing, but I can’t deny it. The kingdom of Heaven is like a cell phone. It seems small (well as long as you don’t have the I-phone 8+), but it changes every part of your life. It impacts your life at home, school, church, work, and the world. The kingdom of Heaven is like a cell phone. It’s not something you just have; it’s with you. It’s always on in the background: calling you to connection, relationship, and reminding you that there is more going on than you realize (aka FOMO). The kingdom of Heaven is like a cell phone.  That’s why the last line of our youth ministry mission statement points to the places we hope are impacted, influenced, and transformed by your faith . . . “your homes, schools, churches, workplaces, and worlds.” How are you doing at being awake to and aware of the God’s presence and call in those places? What would it look like if you carried the Kingdom of Heaven with you the way you carry your cell phone? What would happen if you were as attentive to the sound of God’s call as you are to the sound of getting a text message? How would it feel to carry around the deep, realer than real, truer than true presence of God with you instead of the continual reminder of comparison and competition constantly buzzing in your pocket?  The Kingdom of Heaven is far more than a cell phone. God’s up to something . . . Be a part of it.
