Happy Monday Everyone!
Last night was INCREDIBLE and POWERFUL as we set another attendance record with 46 students, and tore down the walls and lies that Satan has built up around this generation!!!
We kicked off the night with the drywall run and an upbeat, high-energy song to get everyone pumped up for SMASH NIGHT!
John O’farrell gave a powerful message and shared his testimony with the group. He shared 2 Corinthians 5:17ESV— Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
John shared that Satan has a way of feeding us lies. With each lie we believe and act on, the wall gets built up a little more each time. Before we know it, we are surrounded by walls, discouraged, depressed, and hopeless in life. The good news is that Jesus died on the Cross as the payment for our sins, and his love and power smashes down the walls in our lives and this generation as we place our trust in him! The walls and things of our past that have held us back no longer have power over us when we walk in the freedom and power that comes with being a new creation in Christ.
Hebrews 12:1-2 says, Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
We can look at the examples of those who have gone before us and smashed down the walls that surrounded their lives and their generation. We can also be confident as we lay aside every weight and lie as we smash down our walls knowing that we were the joy and prize that Jesus endured the Cross for. Our power and freedom is in him alone. Jesus broke down the wall of sin that separated us from him, and now we can smash down the walls that Satan has attempted to build up around our generation!
