A Message from your ASB Director of Spiritual Life

Hey guys or should I say GROMZZZ, this is Will Allen. I hold the position known as “ASB spiritual life director.”  I would like to make it clear I am just a broken sinner who found new life in Christ. Thank you for supporting me in this position but remember, He is the one we truly need to lead us. Therefore all that is good and stroke-worthy in my life stems from Christ transforming all that I am! I am honored to serve alongside all of you guys in this difficult time. Let us join as a community and remain steadfast to the faith we hold so dear. We do not have to do this trek alone, even if we are in a virtual semester. Let us keep moving forward, leaning into all of his words in the holy scriptures. This ASB team is here for each and every one of you legends.  Please reach out to us if you need a friend to talk to, someone to pray with, or someone to laugh with! 

 

I would like to leave a verse for you grommets:

Romans 5:8

“God shows his love for us in that we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” 

 

That verse is a perfect description of the Gospel. One key point I hope to convey to all of you is, Jesus can take the most broken situation, person, or place and make them a new creation/ child of the Light as Paul writes in 1 Thessalonains 5.  So wherever you are reading this, know that you have been bought with an everlasting love by the creator of the Universe! Meaning, God, da legend who made this whoooole place, loves you and I sooo much that he sent his one and only son to earth to die for all of our sins. Eventhough Jesus was fully God, He chose to humble himself and become man. On earth he walked with ordinary people like you and me, not to brag about how cool it is to be the son of God, but to show mercy to the poor, sick, and powerless. Which we all fall under the category of powerless, not one person is elevated over the other in the eyes of God. 

Jesus showed us that He is the only way we can know God and inherit eternal life. 

Especially during these times, many are running to the pleasures of the world in aims to cover up their deep wounds and scars. Many cover these wounds with drugs, fleshly desires, and sexual immorality. Yet in reality, the only thing that will ever truly satisfy our hearts desire… is to believe in Jesus and to be known by him. 

 

So yea legends, I just want to be here for you all. Let’s seek Jesus together and let his word be a “Lamp unto {our} feet” (paraphrased from psalm 119:105). God Bless you guys and remember… Jesus Shreds!!
