Teen Thursday - Hosted by Shelby Sharp - "Free At Last, I'm Free At Last"


Hey Teen Team!'m a 15 year old Jesus freak and I'm here to host Teen Thursday.

I'm back again with a brand new " Hot Topic", questions, and a funny video clip.
I know we will have a good time.

Let's get to know Jesus better. You and me.


Verse of the Week: 
Romans 8:5 "You are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit."







  This week's "Hot Topic" 

Free At Last, I'm Free At Last
 
  She was a slave. She hadn't believed the rumors of people snatched from their huts and abducted to an unknown land until it happened to her. Chained for months in the dungeon-like hull of a ship, she feared she would die in bondage. After she endured years of hard labor and merciless beatings, the Union army marched into her town. Now an officer stands before her. " You are no longer controlled by your master. You are free."
He was a gang member. Not by choice. As gangs warred in his neighborhood, he needed protection. Trying to stay neutral brought threats to him and his family. Soon, after he joined, he was forced to make his first drug run. Later came gang fights, vandalism,  robberies. Late one night, while holding a loaded gun to the head of a boy from a rival gang, his heart screams, ' I don't want to be controlled like this anymore!'
He was addicted. The first drink slid down easily. So did the second. A year later, getting drunk was a way of life for this high school senior. Without it he couldn't have any fun, couldn't fit in, couldn't escape ugly stuff at home. But when one of his drinking buddies landed in a coffin after a wild party, this student decided enough was enough. As he stands before a group at the finish of a rehab program, he declares, " I'm an alcoholic, but I no longer drink. I'm free!"
She was a victim. Three years had passed since her step-father first hit her. Each year got worse. she had feared what he would do if she reported his abuse, so she kept quiet. But with a close friend's encouragement, she called the police. ' He won't ever touch me again,' she thinks as the officers escort her step-father to the car.
' I'm free.'
  
Some people get the freedom they want. Others only hope for it. But the great news in Romans 8 is that the STRONGEST chains know to humanity have been broken. All of us, the Bible says, were born as slaves to sin, shackled by a habit of evil we can't escape on our own ( see Romans 8: 5-6)
But Jesus changed all that. When you trusted him, the chains fell off. Because of the power of the Holy Spirit living inside youm you don't have to sin anymore. Yep, you WILL sin from time to time because of you own weakness when you're poked by temptations from the world, the flesh, and the devil. But you don't HAVE to sin. You can CHOOSE to be controlled by the Holy Spirit instead of by sin. You are FREE. ( from: Josh McDowell's Youth Devotions 2)
SO LET'S CHAT
What freedoms do you enjoy because Christ and the Holy Spirit are active in your life? 
Jesus, you died to set me free from sin. I want your freedom in every area of my life.


Start your comments.............NOW!



Also feel free to share any prayer requests with all of us. We need to be prayer warriors for each other.

If you have a hard time with getting a "profile" to publish your comment you can #1 set up a Google account..which is just your email addy and your password. It just allows you to have a profile to comment..nothing more. #2 you can choose to the "name/URL" profile. All you need is , again, your email addy, and a URL. You can get a URL by going to YOUR Profile page on Facebook...copy and paste the URL found at the top of the page...the "http:// blah blah blah...." and put that in where it asks for "URL". You will have to do that every time though, where getting a Google account will only be once..and it will recognize you every time.

Don't forget to come back and check out all the comments. There is also a CONTEST going on. The contest is to see if we, the TEENS, can get more comments on THIS post than the adults got on any of theirs.

 


LAUGH TILL MILK SHOOTS OUT YOUR NOSE













Monday is "Music For The Heart" day, where you can share your favorite video from YouTube.com. COME BACK next Thursday for more fun, another funny video,and the next "Hot Topic".

SEE YA!

I feel chained. Chained to my physical problems and mind problems. I'm constantly arguing with my mind problems, and I don't feel free to let them go. I know God can take them, but sometimes, I feel as if I let them go, I won't ever get them back...and that scares me.

"Need a lifeguard? Mine walks on water!" Thanks for stopping by to chat! Please leave a comment and your favorite verse before you go! Have a blessed day!

So Far This Week:

I have run across many people who are having a hard time commenting or finding where they are to comment on the posts. They want to share their prayer requests or music videos and can't. I am hoping this will be easier. From now on, I will add the new day and the new day's topic to the home page post. Just click on the word "HERE" and it will take you to the post with the comment box already up and you will be able to see comments other people have shared. I am praying this will be easier for everyone. If not, we can go back to the old way.
