The Braintree Youth will celebrate Global Youth Service Day on March 18. They have a week prayer on March 18-25.
Jesus told a story about a man in the street that needed help. Two church leaders passed by, doing nothing. They were too busy or too holy to get involved. Then an ordinary guy saw the man in the street and stopped to help. Jesus asked, “Which of these three, was a neighbour to this man?” They answered, “The one who stopped and helped.
The story that Jesus told is as important today as it was 2,000 years ago. Together as Adventist young people, we are called by God to make a difference in our world. The people we pass in the street today are just as in need of God’s love as the man in Jesus’s story. We are called to see, to feel, and to take action. God forbid that we pass by, or that we leave the people in our world needy and neglected.
As Adventist youth our 8 million stories are part of something bigger. Global Youth Day brings us together as champions for the cause of Christ. Jesus commanded, “Go, and do likewise.” But we have to choose if we will answer the call. On Global Youth Day millions of Adventist young people came together to change our world by loving others and helping those in need. They were bold and courageous in spreading the Gospel. They said “yes” to Jesus’s command.
On March 18, 2017, 8 million stories will come together again, as one voice, answering the call to “Be the Sermon”.
