4 I therefore, ma prisoner for the Lord, urge you to nwalk in a manner worthy of othe calling to which you have been called, 2 with all phumility and qgentleness, with rpatience, sbearing with one another in love, 3 eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in tthe bond of peace. 4 There is uone body and vone Spirit—just as you were called to the one whope that belongs to your call— 5 xone Lord, yone faith, zone baptism, 6 aone God and Father of all, bwho is over all and through all and in all. 7 But cgrace was given dto each one of us eaccording to the measure of Christ’s gift.

Today was a special Saturday service for the youth in my church, lofty plans to talk about LOVE, a powerful word that carries the very divine in those 4 letters. Much to my absolute disappointment, the service took to a serious wrong turn when the messaging went down to a very secular approach about blurring lines of dating, dating non christians, sex etc. Despite the concerns expressed by some, the break out sessions were worse. Talks about use of Tinder to be ok with the youths and even the youth leaders admitted using it, was the last straw before I stood up and spoke up. It is very disappointing to see youth leaders using Tinder and saying it is ok for the 15 year old to use it or other online dating apps. I am reminded again on the exhortations from Apostle Paul himself on the life of a Christian, that we to be walking in a manner worth of the call by which we are CALLED, and much is required of Youth leaders especially today when the world has gone sex crazy, and I pray that I will walk in a manner that does not bring shame to Jesus my King, and I had fallen many times and I thank God for His Grace and Mercy, and that I may be used to encourage others to walk in the same manner which the Apostle had called us to. We are not perfect, not at all, but we can, with the Grace that is given to each of us, to walk in a manner that honours God.
