Teen Challenge!

Last night I preached at Teen Challenge in Kyabram, VIC. I have preached there now a couple of times and every time I go I am amazed at the testimonies of transformation I hear from the men who are apart of the program there.

Teen Challenge is a ministry to 18+ males who have addictions to drug and alcohol and it requires them to live in and complete a program of restoration and rehabilitation over approximately a 12 month period. The directors of Teen Challenge Neil and Marcie Meyer are incredible people who have their own stories of incredible transformation. They are doing a tremendous job of pouring their lives out for the guys that are coming through the program.

As each member of the program comes up to share their testimony they keep pointing back to the work of Jesus Christ in their life, showing that the emphasis in the whole program is the power of Jesus Christ to bring healing and wholeness to people’s brokenness.

I preached from Mark 11:1-11 on the topic, “Fit for the King.” My BIG Idea was, ‘No matter what anyone says about you or however inadequate you feel, YOU ARE FIT FOR THE KING! Just as the donkey was a humble beast of burden used by Jesus to ride into Jerusalem on, all we are is donkeys for Jesus fit for him to ride in His glory upon. It went off like a firecracker in your lounge room.

Do something significant with the life God has given to you. Don’t waste it on yourself but spend it for the sake of others. No matter how inadequate or insecure you feel about yourself God sees you as being ‘FIT FOR THE KING!’

Lead the Change!
