FRIDAY NIGHTS / 6:30-8:30PM
Our vision is to see young people come fully alive in Christ.
We believe young people can make a positive difference in the world now. So we’re passionate about seeing them come alive in Christ to live His Way. At Restore we not only have a great Youth Programme but encourage young people to be an active, serving part of the broader church as well. They are not the church of tomorrow, they are the church of today and we value and nurture the contribution they can make now.
What we are learning...
Alien: a resident of one country who was born in or owes allegiance to another country
We have all seen E.T. or a similar alien movie. It’s always the same plot. Creature from outer space lands on earth, meets a few people, and then tries and fails to fit in with normal society. At some point the government gets involved and tries killing the poor creature because they are threatened by the unpredictable and unknown. For those of us who have given our lives to Jesus we are no longer citizens of this world. We are aliens. Foreigners. Outsiders. Just like the aliens in movies, we don’t quite fit in to society.
Jesus is praying to his Father in John 17 about us. Future believers everywhere. In verse 16 he says “they do not belong to this world any more than I do.” Jesus didn’t conform to the world around him. He raised the bar and showed people a new way of living. We are supposed to live like him. One of the most successful strategies of the enemy is convincing us that we need to “fit in”. That we should try and be the same as everyone else. That normal is best. Being different is scary and dangerous in our social circles. Its much safer if we just keep out head down and copy those around us.
I believe that God doesn’t want a generation of young people who fit in. He wants us to stand out! To be different and be proud of that fact. To not be under the pressure and control of our peers but to rise above and walk in complete freedom. Saying no to conforming to the patterns of this world and saying yes to living like Jesus! We are all created uniquely and God wants to use us in many different ways. Our allegiance now lies in heaven and to God’s kingdom. We serve the true King and fight behind enemy lines to see lives restored and rescued.
