Moving to Alabama was huge for our family, but with that move we have met some incredible people. One who happens to be the Youth Pastor at our church. Him and his wife were kind enough to let us stay with them as we waited for our house to be ready. During this time I got to know Cody and his heart for people and our youth. When I found out that he was working on a Bible study, I was more than excited and could not wait to read what God put on his heart.
Today I want to share with you a small word from Cody about his new Bible study and also to encourage you to head over to YouVersion and start this 5 day study. Dig into the Bible and listen to the Holy Sprit as God guides you…
A word from Cody Griggs..
As a youth pastor, I am consistently engaged with a generation that is over-stimulated and under-challenged. This next generation is zealous, but misguided; passionate for God, but without direction. Most of them want to be a part of something greater than themselves, but they feel misplaced and can’t seem to find where they fit in. Come to think of it, it’s not just this next generation. This is an epidemic in churches all across America. Most authentic followers of Christ are genuinely eager to serve, but they aren’t quite sure where they belong. In my six years of ministry, there hasn’t been many things more disheartening than to see somebody in the church misplaced. It’s my sincere desire to see all of God’s people maximizing their gift for His glory. That is why I wrote “You Belong”. This five day devotion is founded on one key truth: we belong to God. It is only when we realize that we are His, that we can discover our purpose. It is my prayer that this plan will help you recognize God’s unmistakable design for your life.
I want to encourage you to check out You Belong and give it a read! You can find it HERE.
