Justin Lookadoo started out the evening with a message to Youth and Adults, “Oh Baby.”
Justin and his wife have become foster parents to a new born and a 14 month old. He talked about the hard work of feeding and care of a baby. The work of mixing the bottles, changing the diapers, and caring for them when they cry, many times in the middle of the night.
Justin compared this to Christians and he said, “if you are a Christian and have been for more than two years, you should be teaching others, feeding others.”
He went on to say that it is very tiring work and I can attest to that. Since Samuel was born 29 months ago, Misty and I have seldom slept through the night and we have had many sleepless nights. Caring for a baby and their needs is a Big Job. It will suck you dry.
Justin says, “If you have been a Christian for more than 2 years and you are not feeding yourself and teachers, you’re sucking your pastor dry.”
On our return to the hotel the youth and leaders gathered for devotions and the youth had a lot to say about how they are going to go back to Carroll County and turn it upside down for Jesus Christ.
It was an awesome night with Justin and Kristian Stanfill. Resurrection 25 is off to a great start.
