Ashley (woman with prego belly to left of girl in pink shirt) gave the talk tonight. It was about taking action in Christ. She gave a really awesome example about her and Josh's (her husband & Young Life are director) engagement. She told the story, which was very movie like, and built up suspense to the part where he actually asked her, "will you marry me?" She explained that if she would have just said, "ohh my gosh, this is so awesome, thanks for doing all these amazingly nice and things, and saying all those wonderful words Josh, YOU ARE THE BEST!" But, did not reply to his invitation of actually getting married, well there would be something extremely lacking. She said, that if she wouldn't have responded to Josh, and then went and told all her friends about the engagement story, they would all be like, "YOU DIDN'T RESPOND, ARE YOU CRAZY?!?" There would have been something extremely lacking there. She correlated this story to the concept of Jesus putting out the great message of salvation, and people just hearing it, and agreeing that it is a nice and novel idea, but by not taking action on it, the whole point would be missed. Living for Christ, takes action! This does not mean everyone needs to carry TRACKS and spread the message of Christ on the street corner. It means sincerely accepting that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and trying to live your life according to what he tought and stood for.
