Back to the Future- Part 2

This week at WNW was the second message of the "Back to the Future" series.  We opened with a worship set that included "This Is Amazing Grace" (Phil Wickham), "Sinking Deep" (Hillsong Young & Free), and "Touch the Sky" (Hillsong United).  I shared that while last week we focused on our past, this week we were focusing on our future.  It is easy for us to think that the decisions we make only impact us in the present.  The reality is that all of our decisions, good or bad, sinful or God honoring, will impact us and have consequences on our future.  I made reference to Romans 6:1-2 that lets us know that when we are saved that we cannot continue to live our lives in sin and live the way we want to.  We then read Galatians 6:6-10.  Paul tells us that we will reap what we sow.  If we live a life that is sinful and goes against God's desires then it will bring us corruption and destruction in our lives.  However if we make godly choices then we will reap the benefits.  We do not follow God in order to receive blessings, but we follow Him because of His love for us.  I challenged the students to think beyond the present and think about the future.  The decisions we make today will impact us later on.  We closed with a time of prayer asking God to reveal to us the path that we are on.
