            2009 has been flat-out crunk for CBSM.  We’ve gone on awesome trips including a high school conference at Southern Seminary, Student Life Camp at Covenant College, BASIC Mission trip to Detroit, and ADVANCE Mission Trip to San Diego.  We’ve had great events at our place such as our Back to School Bash, HarvestFEST student night, and our Disciple Now Weekend.  We’ve had crazy stuff happen like having to cancel our All-Nighter because the mayor personally shut us down because of the Swine Flu epidemic.  Over 2009, we’ve witnessed God save several teenagers, several get baptized, some called to full-time ministry, and so many lives changed for the glory of Christ.  Our Wednesday worship services, Sunday AM small groups, and Sunday PM SMT’s have all grown by leaps and bounds.  There is definitely a huge common denominator in all of this.  For the events and trips that totally flopped and epically failed, it has always been because of the poor preaching and teaching of God’s Word.  For the events and trips that were a huge success, it was always because of the awesome preaching of the Word of God. 

            So notice, not only in our student ministry, but also in our lives, how crucial the Word of God is.  Do you understand what the Word of God really is, how true, how powerful, and how beneficial it is?  Do you realize what the Word of God is really getting across to us, really teaching us, and really pointing us towards?  Let me ask you this.  How different would your life look if you really loved, believed, depended on, read, studied, meditated, and obeyed God’s Word on a constant basis?  Do you get how important it is for our lives in order for God to get His truths and wisdom into us?   Continue reading

           It raised the phrase “a walk to remember” to a new level.  When I was a youth leader in Tuscaloosa, the youth pastor and I took a group of graduated senior guys to the beach.  The youth pastor warned them of my love to walk the beach for miles and hours, but they still joined me.  We began our journey at 10am with the sun to our backs, and at high noon we headed back as the sun had crossed over the sky and was at our backs again.  One not-so-lucky walker started feeling really hot later that night and found that he was severely sunburned. After being confined to a couch with a near-by fan, food, and a videogame controller for the rest of the week at the beach house, one of the guys found a strong pain reliever in his bag on the last night of the trip.  It sure made my friend feel better, but he was ticked it wasn’t found until the last day.
