“I do, I do” was not the first Navteens session that I attended, probably my second or third one.
But it was indeed one that impacted me the most and got me thinking a lot. We started off having a short time of praise and worship and then went on into the session.
Many times in our Christian lives, we fail to spread the word to the people around us-our relatives, our friends etc. As a Christian since young, I must admit that I haven’t been actively evangelizing. It used to be “good-to-do” thing, not a “must-do”.
However, a video that was played in the session hit me really hard—An infant knocked down on the road, first by a van, and later by a lorry. During the course of the accident, several passer-bys were present-but none helped and the little girl was just left there to die.
It got me thinking, “Aren’t we similar to the passer-bys? We do know that the only way to salvation is to receive Christ and we are not actively spreading the word. Similar to leaving them to die—to face eternal death.” I believe that all it takes is a simple step to share Christ with the people around us, even though it’s not always a success, but I trust that if we do our part as disciples of God and actively do evangelism, trust that God will do the rest!
I’m truly glad that I attended this session because I believe that it is one of the turning points in my Christian life—this lesson will be one that I will never forget.
I do - Do you?
“I Do, I Do” – What God says I Do was a rally on taking the first step into reaching the lost around us and a call for an urgency for the gospel to go forth. On that day, we had a blessed time of worship, skits, engaging learning sessions, games and of course food together on the 17 August afternoon.
Theresa, a student, wrote about what the Lord has impressed upon her heart through this rally.
"Come, follow me," Jesus said. "And I will make you fishers of men."
Will you follow Him?
I do I do
