Youth Hungering & Thirsting After Righteousness

I was impressed with the hunger and thirst for the word of God, and their desire to have pure hearts before God.  During a brief testimony time, a young man shared how he was the only Christian in his family, and how God had shown him that he needed to ask forgiveness from his father and mother for some of his wrong actions in the past.  Another commented that he always wondered why ladies didn’t cover their heads, since it’s in the Bible.  Another shared how he wants to have a pure heart for God like Joseph.    A young lady shared with me later how Hebrews has always been one of those books that she was afraid to study, and she was so excited this week to learn about Melchizedek, since it never made sense to her before.  There were tears and brokenness before God, and we found encouragement as we discussed the truths of God’s word.  Repentance happened as God’s Holy spirit pointed out areas of our lives that needed to be changed.
