Reading from John 10:10, he gave insight on our purpose here on earth. You were born for a reason. Society may have made you feel like you are nobody, but you are somebody, you’re not here to balance the ecosystem. Time is for the pursuit of purpose. Discipline your mind in the direction of your purpose in life. Your time on earth is a preparation for eternity. Live your life for Jesus. Join God’s army of kingdom activists today.
Oh! How momentous it was when over 4,000 young people charged forward, running to receive salvation when the altar call was made. The presence and power of the Lord was strong in the arena as healing and diverse miracles were wrought in the mighty name of Jesus Christ… Hundreds of young people with diverse problems- asthma, eye conditions, bone conditions, heart problems and some who could not walk were healed at the mention of the name of Jesus. Thousands of copies of the special collection of messages for youth, preached by our man of God Pastor Chris in past national Youth Conferences – Inspiring Generation XYZ, were distributed. New converts received personal copies of the Rhapsody Bible, copies of the book ‘Now That You Are Born Again’ and the Rhapsody of realities.
It was indeed a live changing and impactful meeting. One that has shaped and changed the destinies of the young people ready to change their world!
