I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God,
to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God,
which is your spiritual worship.
Paul, inspired by God, described the REAL LIFE of the believer using the illustration of animal sacrifice. But not just any sacrifice, a sacrifice that continues to live in spite of being sacrificed. The resulting life is one of ongoing "true and proper" acts of worship (Romans 12:1).
And so, flowing from our LOVE for Christ, as the TREASURE that He is to those who believe, Fellowship Rouge Youth seeks to explore what the real life of worship looks like.
We will be providing teaching, training, encouragement and opportunities to explore various acts of worship including :
This is the real life that "loves the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength." (Mark 12:30-31)
It is understood that as youth make the transition from child to adult, they have only just begun to understand, experience and engage in their own expressions of worship, independent from the worship routines and the hand holding of parents. And so, we encourage our youth to take ownership of their acts of worship, and as living sacrifices, not settle for a life simply in the pan, but one that is in the fire.
