“CBC YG, Please come back to God !!”

 

I used to be a leader in a Youth Group at my previous church, for over 10 years…  I write today for all the now young adults that went to our YG,  that are now in some cases over 30 years old…  But this post could be for any young adult, that grew up in church, or going to a YG…and now never darkens the door of any church, or opens and reads their Bible…

I am still friends with dozens of these young adults on FB, many married with children… I still pray every morning for over 35 of you by name, for years now… I am reaching out to all of you who are not going to a church, or spending time reading the Bible…or are not part of a Bible study in a small group setting…  I just wrote a post last week titled “Why I need God, because I don’t read the Bible”…  [You can read it at 1. Below]

For any of you still living in the Woodbury area, that are not going to church, I invite you to check out our church, “New Beginnings BFC”…found at 335 Woodbury-Glassboro Rd, in Woodbury Heights, NJ 08097  [2.]  It is a Non-Denominational Bible believing, Bible preaching and teaching church, that is part of a fellowship of 70 churches started over 150 years ago !!  We have an excellent Sunday School for ALL ages (9:15 am), and church that starts at 10:30 am every Sunday…  We also have a nursery, for the parents who come with infants…

When looking for a church, you wonder if you will be accepted…you wonder what the doctrine of the church is all about [See 3. Below for what we believe]…  You don’t have to wonder…  New Beginnings BFC is filled with love…and the church doctrine is absolutely Bible based !!

And if you are already going to a church, but would be interested in a Bible study in a small group setting to learn more about God and the Bible…we have a “small group” meeting every 2nd and 4th Wednesday evening at 7 PM at the church…  All are welcome at any age, and bring your parents or friends !!  You don’t have to go to our church to come !!  We are now studying the Books of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd John…and have a time of fellowship and refreshments afterward…  Come join us to study the Word, and you will find a group of loving believers that will pray for any of your concerns…  [Please let me know about “small groups” ahead of time, so we can prepare enough refreshments – cell: 856-430-1448]

For those of you with children, the Word is clear that you should teach your children about God and the Bible at an early age…or else… ☹

The following scripture was written by Solomon (King David’s son), who was made the wisest man there was, or will be by God (1 Kings 4:29-30)

Proverbs 22:6…  Train up a child in the way he should go;  even when he is old he will not depart from it.  (ESV)

For a good explanation to… “What does the Bible say about raising children?”, check out this link in 4. Below, by www.Gotquestions.org

My fellow young adults…We can only have one master/Master (Matthew 6:24)…  It will either be God the Father, or Satan, the ruler of this world…  Don’t be blinded by Satan into believing you don’t need to attend church, or spend time reading the Bible [6]…

2 Corinthians 4:4…  In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.  (ESV)

I hope each and every young adult that reads this post, will be urged by the Holy Spirit to join a church, and bring up their children in a way that will be pleasing to God…  You WILL be blessed beyond belief !!  You say you’re not a “born again” Christian ??  I urge you to open the P.S. below, and seek God while He may still be found, in…

Isaiah 55:6…  “Seek the Lord while he may be found;  call upon him while he is near;  (ESV)

I thought I was a Christian, and went to church every week for 25 years !!  But God was patient and longsuffering with me…  I ended up going to the Protestant church at the age of 51, and I was saved in at the age of almost 52 !!   Don’t make the same mistake that I did !!  All of those years wasted without being graced by God, and indwelt with the Holy Spirit… You CANNOT live your best life without God in charge !!   You have to understand and obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, to be 100% guaranteed a room in God’s mansion when you breath your last…John 14:1-4…  [See P.S. below for a Gospel presentation]

I leave you young adults (all readers) with this most important scripture, written by the apostle Paul, in…Ephesians 3:20…  Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us,  (ESV)

The He in this scripture is the Holy Spirit living within every “born again” Christian, who can open doors, and help you achieve the absolute best God wants for you and your children… Don’t dare try and live your life in your own strength, like I did all those wasted years… Don’t wait another day !!  God doesn’t promise us tomorrow (James 4:13-14) !!  Start going to church, spend time feeding your spirit with God’s Word, the Bible (Matthew 4:4…&…Luke 4:4)…and you will be blessed beyond imagination with all the promises God makes to His obedient children, in His inerrant Word, the Bible !!

Gracious God and heavenly Father, Your Word is living and powerful…Hebrews 4:12…  I pray these young adults, and ALL who read this post, are moved by the Holy Spirit to seek Your face…join a church…and raise their family in a way that will bring them an abundant life filled with all of Your promises…[5.]  May each and every reader be able to proclaim You as Lord…that they may be filled with the Holy Spirit, and that the spiritual fruit of Love Joy, Peace, (and the other 6 spiritual fruit – Galatians 5:22-23), will bless them today, tomorrow, and for an eternity…  I pray for this life change for all of us, in Jesus’ most precious name, and for His sake…Amen…

Blessings in Christ,  bruce (pop’s)
