Last night at Hope Generation (our Monday Night Service), my son Benjamin shared a special teaching geared especially for college-age kids and high-schoolers who are getting ready to head back to their campuses for the upcoming school year.
Knowing that many will be inundated with so-called “scientific facts” that are intended to undermine one’s confidence in The Bible and/or belief in God, Ben armed us with facts-and-stats to show just how current and even prescient God’s Word is in light of Quantum Physics.
Ben made it all amazingly understandable and also extremely entertaining!
I wanted to bring it your way for you to take it in personally..... and then to pass it on to any high-schoolers or college-age kids that would benefit from this presentation.
And, if possible, make sure you listen all the way through to the end, where it all comes together in a prophetic/exhortative way that will minister to your heart concerning the Greatness of our Creator and the Closeness of our Loving Father.
So fasten your seat-belts and buckle-up-your-brains, for your mind is about to be blown-away!

... Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men ...
You are to do what’s asked of you enthusiastically. The word ‘enthusiasm’ comes from the Greek phrase, ‘en theos’, or ‘full of God’.
Eugene Ormandy, Conductor of the Philadelphia Philharmonic, dislocated his right shoulder because he conducted with such enthusiasm. We know so little of this kind of service. We don’t separate our shoulders. We barely wrinkle our ties. That’s why we don’t ascend to the level God would have us enjoy in so many arenas.
David was a man who went above and beyond the call of duty, bounding over walls (Psalm 18:29), expending great energy. And the men around him developed that same mentality. Hiding out in the cave at Adullam one day, David mused, ‘I would give anything for a drink of water from the well at Bethlehem.’
Hours later, as the sun began to set, three of his men — Adino, Eleazar, and Shammah — approached him. Their clothes were tattered, their flesh bruised and bleeding.
‘Where did you guys go?’ David must have asked.
And in my mind’s eye, I can see a tear running down his dusty cheek as they handed him a skin of water, drawn from the well of Bethlehem (2 Samuel 23). The most precious gift David ever received was from three of his ‘employees’ who had risked their lives to please him. And it was Adino, Eleazar, and Shammah who remained chiefs of his mighty men once he became king.
Who becomes a mighty man on the job, in the Church, for the Kingdom? The one who hears the heart of his employer. The world says, ‘Skate by. Leave early. Cover up.’
But God, who sees all, says, ‘I’m looking for men and women who, with good cheer, enthusiasm, and singleness of heart respect those in position over them with fear and trembling.’ Such a one will go far in the things of God.
