All of us in Young Life were once kids who have been changed by Jesus. I was changed by Jesus through a Young Life Camp in October of 2000, but He is not yet done with me. He is still working on me.
One of my favorite songs in YL is “He’s Still Working On Me,” which goes:
There really ought to be
a sign upon my heart
Don't judge him yet,
there's an unfinished part
But I'll be better just according to His plan
Fashioned by the Master's loving hands
He's still working on me to make me what I ought to be…
Jesus is in the business of changing people. Yet, Jesus is the same yesterday and today and forever. The one who never changes is in the business of changing. We, the staff of YL, are living proof of that.
He’s not done with us yet, and he continues to change us until now. We were also given the opportunity to see change in the life of every kid He sends our way.
If He was able to change us before, and He is still changing kids today, then He will for sure continue to change lives in the future.
I am so grateful that through Young Life I was given an opportunity to see kids’ lives change. It will always be a glorious and gratifying experience. I thank Jesus for allowing me to be part of His wonderful business of changing people.
