Here is a little bit of my heart behind the name of the House. Below are my notes from last night in officially switching the name of our youth group at LIFEchurch from Awaken to theHOUSE.
The House is a place, where you live.
I want the house to be synonymous with home. The house just sounds better than the home.
Home is where the heart is!
In your house is where you are who you really are.
Not only does your house have a foundation, but it sets you with a solid foundation as well.
The Wise and Foolish Builders
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
We believe this book.
We will build everything off of this book.
The House is where you’ll be loved. No matter what.
27 He answered: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’a; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’b”
