I met a young man this week, and I must say he was a mighty inspiration to me.
Nineteen years old, and not afraid to give a beautiful prayer of testimony to Jesus and His great love. Sean is his name, and he plays University football on a business scholarship.
One of the things that impressed me about Sean was how he spoke of his biological father. His love and respect for his daddy were evident, as was his love and respect for Jesus Christ.
Sean’s father is a minister, and it is evident that Sean, due to his father’s influence, has a living, breathing relationship with his Lord and master. I prayed for Sean, after which I asked him to pray for me. And oh wow! The young man offered a heartfelt prayer far beyond touching me. I will remember that prayer always.
It is young men like Sean that give us hope for this broken old world.
Father God, O Holy one, we come to you with happy hearts that young people all over the world are hearing and answering your call. Please walk with each of us, for this is the greatest Christmas gift you can give any of us. We love you, O Holy one. In Jesus’ wonderful and perfect name, we ask it, Amen.

It is inspiring to meet someone today who unabashedly proclaims Jesus! With all the "political correctness" and "woke" ideology rampant today, it is refreshing and revitalizing to run into somebody who is unafraid to speak the TRUTH!
Many years ago, a group of young people proclaimed our Lord on college campuses around the nation! They were known as "Jesus Freaks" and many ridiculed them but what they did was kick complacency in the teeth and reignite a fire for the Lord!
A warrior does not listen to fear, his calling is more profound!

Words well spoken my friend How often had we felt called to speak love to others and yet, for whatever reason we were silent. Was our silence motivated by fear? Or was it, god forbid; based in shame, 'What will they think of me?"
Genuine christians should never feel fear or shame for doing the right thing! Bless you my friend, Chaz
