We are revealing our Manifesto of who we are as The New Young Christian. If you haven't read part 1 of our passion piece read it here.
We are called to a revolution. Not a revolution from something but for something. This revolution demands us to charge the hills, stake our flag in the ground and never give it up. No matter what is charging at us or trying to overtake us, this is the ground we battle for that we don’t relinquish easily. There will be a societal clash of arms on these hills because these are not just good ideas but solid ground to defend from the intimidation around us. When we take the hill, we keep the hill because there is no going back to normal once we do. The taking and keeping of these hills secures the spiritual future of you and those around you us fight and never give them up.
These are the hills The New Young Christians will take or die trying:
Hill 4: Be Storytellers and Storymakers
The New Young Christian understands that your story, their story and God’s story must be told. Every name has a story & your story matters.
We believe the greatest story to be told is the Good News to a generation that is surrounded by corrosive words and erosive ideology. Jesus has come to bring life to the fullest to a generation that knows a pseudo life that is masquerading itself as a grafted life only in the end to be a disappointing life.
We overcome our life trials by the truth of the story of Jesus and the script from our lives that declares this story true. So we refuse to claim our biography’s but we choose to declare our testimony’s. When we choose to live out a better and greater story, its undeniable potency of our authentic chapters of life grips the hearts and minds of our communities to reveal to others God is not only real but the author, perfector and finisher of these novels.
As they encounter our lives, as they read our hearts they discover the author, Himself. He takes the pages of their lives and begins to script a different story. We suddenly find ourselves moving from storytellers to storymakers. Dreaming big for the what could be for you, your community and our God. These stories may not be perfect but are happy in ending. Hero’s are made. Evil is conquered. Love is found. A “the end” with a disclaimer that says it’s only the beginning.
