Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." (NIV)
Three years later, I took my first group of students to the Fellowship of Christian Athlete's football camp at Georgia Southern University. Many of the kid's decided that they wanted to dedicate their lives to being followers of Jesus Christ. As a result, some of the senior students decided that they wanted to end each practice by reciting The Lords Prayer.
About 4 months later, I was called into the office and told that a parent complained that I was "praying with the kids" (Even after the same parent's child was allowed to attend FCA camp for 3 days and 2 nights). I was reminded of "separation of church and state". As a result, I was put in a situation where I had choose to 1) Stop sharing the Good news of the Gospel because man's law says that the church and state should be separate or 2) stand by my belief and do as God instructs us all to do.
I CHOOSE JESUS !!!!!!
WITHOUT JESUS, I'M NOTHING.
