The Michigan District NYI seeks to partner with local churches in order to provide key opportunities during the formative years of high school for students to be shaped by God's word and the Christian community. Nazarene Youth Conference is one to those opportunities. Every four years, Nazarene Youth Conference (NYC) is an opportunity for students to grow in their walk with God.
This conference has proven to be a milestone in the lives of many students in the ongoing formation of their world-view, and it will both challenge and encourage students to have the compassion to be a world-changer and show others the love of Christ. The theme of NYC '19 is simple: Love God. Love Others.
Simple but challenging, these can sometimes be described as the two pillars of following Jesus. God is the source of love. Love was His idea. He created the world, and us, to know and share this love. He sent Jesus to display this love and make a way for us to live in this love forever.
But what are we doing with it? How do we accept it, show it, and share it? The answer is simple, but it's not easy. Love God and Love Others.
What does that mean? Love is verb. Love is active. Love is about a relationship built on trust, surrender, and giving. Love is not passive. It must be expressed. Love must be lived out.
Love lived out is holiness - where love for God and love for others comes together. It is the center point of our relationship with God and others. It's not enough to only love God OR love others. Following Jesus requires both! Ultimately, loving God compels us to love others in authentic ways. Real love leads to holiness. It's not something we manufacture. The love of Christ works in and through His followers to make a difference in this world now.
As Holiness people, we know this because it is in our bones. It's our story from the beginning. Love for God and others is how and why we began.
In a crazy mixed-up world with so many bad example of love, maybe it's time to reorient ourselves around the author of love, and take the simple, yet challenging, call of Jesus seriously. Love God. Love Others. This is how love is lived out.
