When a consequence will happen is an unknown. The truth of a lie is that a consequence will eventually happen. The sooner you embrace truth, the sooner you will be freed from the bondage of a lie.
A nickname for Jesus would be "The Truth." Ben used a Bible verse from John 8:32, "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” The young men listened well.
Personal stories and transparency always open up a portal to the hearts of young men. Telling them the truth that we all make mistakes, but God forgives and loves all of us equally.
Thanks Pastor Ben for a timely and valuable message. Your words helped to shape the future character of some young men who will face hard choices. Thank you for sharing your heart. Jesus loves you and so do we.
BWAP is Brothers With A Purpose.
We help 16-30 yr. old young men
become Christ-centered role models
who mentor the next generation.
We focus on guys affected by gangs, violence and poverty.
For the last 15 years, we have successfully helped many young people become responsible and contributing members of society. Each success story is built one mentoring moment at a time. If you would like to know how to get involved, please call the Director at 716-830-8240. We love to tell the story of what God is doing in the lives of young people.
Thanks for your time. Go do something nice for somebody.
Jesus loves you and so do we.
