3 Hard Questions

10th October

Humans have a lot of questions. You and I have a lot of questions. There are questions we ask of people we look up to. How did you end up…? When did you first get to…? How did you ever meet…?

We even have questions of people we don’t quite look up to. What were you…? How did you ever…? Who asked you to…? Why…?

Life is full of questions and often the hardest questions are the ones we ask ourselves. What would you do and how would you respond if someone were to ask you some of the same questions that bounce around in your head?

As the final night of North American Youth Congress had arrived all too quickly, attendees poured into the Chesapeake arena with great expectation. As the crowd shuffled in to find the best seat available, the North American Talent Search began with various apostolic bands seeking to offer their gifts for the glory of God. With each group of contestants, the students rallied behind their peers and voted on their favorite group.

Following the talent search and a few promotional videos, evangelist, Chris Green, led us in prayer as we prepared our hearts for the Word of the Lord. Each young person in the congregation was asked to place their hands on their head and bind all fear, doubt, and disbelief so God could work freely among us. Bro.
