Road Trip Pt. 4- Arriving to Your Destination

This week we wrapped up the Road Trip series.  I recapped the past 3 weeks about the spiritual journey we are on, and the crossroads and roadblocks we will face.  This week I talked about arriving to our destination.  The truth is however on a spiritual journey here on earth, we never really "arrive".  The Christian life is meant to be continuous, we should always be seeking God more and more each day.

I talked about the fact that we can't ever think we have "become" as Christians.  When we do, that is pride and we all know the saying- "Pride comes before the fall".  This is even evident in scripture.  We can read about this in Proverbs 16:18.  I also mentioned the story in Luke 18:9-14 about the Pharisee and the Tax Collector and how we can not be comparing ourselves to other Christians.

Paul tells us in Philippians 1:9-11 that we need to continue to grow in love, knowledge, and understanding.  As week seek God more each day, our love for Him will grow more.  And with that we will gain knowledge and understanding of God and His will for our lives.

We concluded the night with some time in prayer, praying for each other, for the youth leaders, and for what God has in store for us this year.

And here is the final video of the series
