A true friend is a gift of God.
Well, my friend, here we are on the last Step of the My Brother's
Keeper program! If you look back on the last 14 days, you can feel
that change has certainly begun. A miracle is unfolding inside of
you. You've demonstrated patience and now you will bring forth even
more fruit for the Lord! The faith within you is growing, and you can
feel the warmth of hope beaming down from heaven upon you.
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of
witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so
easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set
I'm so proud of you that you followed through with such dedication
and ambition. Your Father knows your heartfelt desire to continue to
humbly serve Him with each new day that He blesses you with.
Congratulations on your achievement!
This is what Moses said to the children of Israel, just before they
went into the Promised Land.
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:
5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine
heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be
in thine heart:
7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children,
and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when
thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou
8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and
they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
One of the gifts that God has given you is the determination to carry
on the traditions that He told us to live by. He said we should teach
them to our children and talk about His ways when we sit in our
houses and when we walk down the street and when we lie down to sleep
and when we wake up. The world has forgotten that, but you are the
hope of the future.
1 Corinthians 9:24
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth
the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
Through this program, you've learned how to guide the sheep of the
world on the right path ... Following the Way of Jesus. You are
today's disciples, with a mission to accomplish, and even though
Moses spoke the words you read above nearly 3500 years ago, you are
pioneers of the plan that God gave to Him for all of us. You've made
a choice to take the gifts that your Father has generously given to
you through His Holy Spirit and share them with His people, your
spiritual brothers and sisters. You're one of the called, who respect
God's Word enough to honor it, no matter how long ago it was spoken,
or how drastically the world has changed since. You've made the
choice to represent Jesus and taken the responsibility to be your
This isn't the end of the program, but the beginning of your ministry
to become a counselor ... A shepherd for others. You're making your
first few ripples, which will make more, and more, more, more, more,
more and more.
You're taking the image of God, and revealing it to everyone who
looks at you. You're building a foundation in Truth, which is
something that can never be taken from you, and you're making a
difference in the world. It's a better place because of you.
You're the leaders of the future. You're the hope of the world, to
remain righteous, and godly, and wholesome, and strong.
You should feel a great anticipation inside of you as you complete
this program, because now you get to choose how earnest you are to
put it into action. Your attitude is everything. Remember, the Holy
Spirit will guide you as long as you're willing to allow Him to.
There will be a weekly meeting for all of you who have completed the
My Brother's Keeper program, to share your thoughts, concerns,
comments, questions, and suggestions with the Teen Leaders. You can
find the dates and times on the Calendar of Events.If you have
completed this program at a time where there are no participants
there, I encourage you to step up and lead! Get it started again!
It's a new challenge!

All you have to do now, is get out your charts, go into the chat room

I would like to suggest that you re-read the program from the
beginning over the month or so again. Of course you need not follow
the one day at a time procedure as you are merely building on the
foundation. It won't take you as long, because you are familiar with
it now, but you will find that you missed some things the first time,
or some things that you may not have completely understood, you will
understand the second time through.
This program is just a part of many studies for you to continue
expanding your knowledge and wisdom about God at Christianity Oasis.
