Do you have the faith to Rise Above?
Many obstacles lay ahead in the Christian life. Sometimes it feels like now obstructions are added daily. Some are mocked by friends. Others are forsaken by family. In many parts of the world, many are persecuted by governments. But Paul asks in Romans 8 “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” We want to challenge teens and young adults to stand fast in the love of God and vow to RISE ABOVE whatever challenges may come their way.
