Fickle Friends

Posted on by Youth for Christ

James  is a sophomore at Schurz High School in Chicago. He comes to Slingshots (City Life Center) to play guitar in the music room. James has also heard about the love of Jesus during our daily Bible challenges.

A couple of weeks ago James gave his life to Jesus. He is very happy and it shows in his spirit and on his face. James shared recently that his friends at school were making fun of him for finding Jesus. He was a little frustrated because they were his friends. 

I encouraged James to pray for his friends to fall in love with the same Jesus he fell in love with. James is starting to surround himself with Christian friends and he found a local youth group that he now attends on Friday nights.

Please pray for teens like James as they learn how to navigate life as a new believer in Jesus, and share their newfound hope with friends.
