Be an example...

This weeks TTT focused on 'being an example of the followers of Messiah' based
on 1 Timothy 4:12
Le no man despise your youth; but be an example
of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit,
in faith, in purity.

We talked about how the world typifies and expects
the average teenager to go through a rebellious stage and
how we as the people of Yahweh don't have to
fit into that mold, but we are to allow Messiah to
shine through us, or die to our own selfish ways, and
allow Messiah to live in us.  So in doing
 we don't have to conform to this world but are
transformed by the renewing of our mind, or thought
patterns.  If we think we have to go through
a rebellious stage we most likely will.  But if  we
think or discipline our minds and flesh to walk
in the light as he is in the light we can be
bright lights in a dark world, we can be
examples of the followers of Messiah.

We also learned that the enemy of our souls
will lay traps for us, not just any o'trap but
one like barbs in a fishing hook.  Once you've
found yourself in his trap it's very hard to loose
yourself... like a fish caught on a hook, the more the fish
struggles to get free the more the barbs are set into the fish's flesh.
We discussed how it is so much easier to recognize the traps
and avoid them, rather than struggle to get
free from them.

We also read and listened to a couple of
testimonies from young girls who committed
their live to Yahweh to follow the Messiah and
how their lives were changed.

This lesson was taken from Bright Lights Lesson One
We continued to talk, laugh and pray
enjoying fellowship and bonding our
love and relationships with each other.
