In our youth group we created the HKC Habits – the 5 things that if we did them would make us awesome Christians who know God and make Him known, who live it for real 100%.

 

And if someone was to ask me, Claire how do I live for Jesus 100% they would be the 5 things that I would tell them

H Hang out with God

A Attend Youth & Church

B read your Bible

I Invest your life & money

T Tell your story

 

H hang out with God

this is prayer, worship, reading your bible – we need to know God like we know a friend.  God isn’t far far away on a cloud with a big white beard, He is personal and near and close and we can know Him.  I’m telling you that you can talk to God like He is your friend and that God will talk to you and that its all for real.  Sometimes we make it complicated but its not.  Black and white plain as plain you can talk to God and He will talk to you.  Not in a loud BOOM voice but on the inside, it might sound like your thoughts but often comes with that sense of peace or is exactly what you need to hear and encouragers you.

 

A attend church and youth.

Now this one might be a tough one.  Because so many other options come up.  Jobs.  Sports. Friends.  But God calls us to make church and youth a priority because its where we encounter Him and learn about Him and also hang with other people who love Him.  Its important.  There are going to be lots of challenges on this one as you go through life but I can tell you that when the bible says Seek first the kingdom of God and all these other things will be added to you is for real truth.  God always has your back and if you make following Him and knowing Him number 1 He will take care of the rest.  Not saying it will be easy and that unicorns will open doors for you but saying its worth it.

 

B read your bible.

Yup its part of hanging out with God but it has its own thing because it is that important.  The Bible is all about God and who He is and what He is like and what He promises and how He loves and what He does.   It shows us the right way to live.  It helps us keep away from sin.  Now sin isn’t just the mistakes we make it is the intentional selfish things we do that wreck relationships, not just between us and God but between us and our friends and our families and our whoevers.  I want an unwracked life and I want unwracked realionships and I want unwracked relationship between me and God.

 

I invest your life and your life

we are part of a bigger story and a bigger family and God works it so that we collab together to do awesome things and change the world.  But it takes investing your life – while we are here I want to honour some peeps who are investing their lives… stand up all hkc leaders and servers – massive claps – these guys are investing their lives and time and energy so that we all can know God and live His adventure.

 

T tell your story.

Knowing that God is real and loves us and is awesomes isn’t meant to be kept a secret.  The bible says that God has placed eternity in the hearts of all people… which means that at some moment in everyones lives they want to know for real if God is real.  We are the best adveristments of all the good stuff God does because He does it for us.  Have you ever brought something and you just want to tell everyone.  Like I got this amazing toothbrush that just makes my teeth sparkle like the snow on the top of mount Everest or I ate this burger that was like the best burger in the world or check out my new phone it can clean the house and drive the kids to school and erase my freckles and shoot lasers out of its eyes like you must have it now…..!  you get the picture!    You never know when someone is ready to hear about the good news of God’s love and what Jesus has done so we can be set free and forgiven.  Our role is to just tell our story and let God do the rest.
