Mr. Gladding spoke from Matthew 5:17-20, which says, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them." In an age of relativism, it is important for our students to hear this powerful message about the standard by which we should live. “The standard” is God’s alone and God’s standards do not change.
We pray that God's anointing continues in the lives of our world changers!
Mr. Gladding challenged our students to be careful of the story they are writing. "Does your story only speak about YOU and the things YOU have accomplished or does it give GOD glory?" Mr. Gladding read from Acts 7:1-60.
We pray for the moving of the Holy Spirit as God continues to move this week. We praise God for His glory and honor and the One who sees and reaches out to the hurting and draws all men unto Himself.
Mr. Gladding spoke on 2nd Corinthians 12:1-10, which says "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me..." Mr. Gladding revealed rejoicing in all things should, therefore, be a rejoicing in the cross where all blessings were purchased for us at the cost of the death of Jesus Christ.
The students also enjoyed Community time where they were able to eat BBQ hamburgers, read notes from classmates in their Be A Real Friend bags, played games and fellowshipped with one another. WCA would like to thank Mr. Gladding for sharing his knowledge and heart with our students last week.
