Student Leader Weekly 3.15

Teen Trends

In case you haven't heard, Asbury University was the site of an exciting, powerful revival that began a couple of weeks ago. What started as a normal chapel service turned into a service that lasted longer than two weeks. Unsurprisingly, it made the rounds on social media with over 1 million views on Tik Tok alone. Over time, it spread to other colleges in the area as people came from all across the country to experience what God was doing in Kentucky. Since then, the college has "shut down" the revival (the service portion at least) in the hopes that it will continue to spread throughout the local community, other colleges, and eventually, the whole country. 


Song of the Week

Katy Nichole is a relatively new artist to the scene within the past year, but she has quickly amassed a large following. Her newest release is an album called Jesus Changed My Life, which features 11 new songs. The headline song though is her hit single, In Jesus Name. When discussing her newest album, she compared it to the Psalms as both come from a place of running to Jesus in seasons of trouble. You can listen to her new album in its entirety here

Sermon Illustration

One of my favorite stories from the life of Jesus is when He changed the woman at the well's life in John 4. As many of you may know, Jews didn't associate with Samaritans, but Jesus met this outcast in her daily rhythms - as she was getting water - He met her where she was. While He knew about her many previous marriages, this didn't discourage Him. Long story short, after revealing Himself to be the Messiah, the woman immediately ran into town and proceeded to tell everyone. What a story this is! How often are we guilty of simply receiving Christ's blessings without sharing them with the world? This is the heart behind Asbury choosing to end the revival service - so that people will share how Jesus changed their lives.


John 4:42 - They said to the woman, "We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world."


Encouraging Thought

What blessings has Christ shared with you lately and are you sharing those gifts with others? Whether it's a supernatural healing or a simple thought from your morning devotion, God can use it to change someone else's world. It may be exactly what they need to hear.
