to quote someone else: group like Jesus’ (Mark Yaconelli)


“If you have a group of twelve kids who don’t understand your illustrations and one of them wants to kill you, you have a youth group just like Jesus.”

A Mark Yaconelli quote, taken from Sustainable Youth Ministry by Mark DeVries.

How many times have you looked at your group of students and thought, “even Jesus couldn’t get through to these kids?”

Often we forget that the disciples did not understand Jesus’ messages, and He was the best teacher ever. Next time you get frustrated at the group of students you work with, be reminded that Jesus’ group was just as frustrating. And look how they changed the world!!
