LIFE INSPIRED TEACHING
1 Chronicles 16:27 (AMP)
Splendor and majesty are [found] in His presence; Strength and joy are [found] in His place (sanctuary).
SNCTRY is a place that glorifies God, Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit. We are unashamed to say that Jesus is at the center of everything and it is because of this that young people can find strength and joy here. SNCTRY is “His place”! Does this mean that all the young people representing Jesus here are perfect? HELL NO! We are all still working out who we are and what we’re meant to be doing on this Earth. The difference is, we are all looking to find answers in the same place – His Sanctuary.
This is the essence and the foundation of SNCTRY. It is a place where young people can ask questions and find answers. God is interested in EVERY detail of our lives, which means He has answers to every question we would ever dare to ask Him.
Psalms 119:130 (NLT)
The teaching of Your word gives light, so even the simple can understand.
SNCTRY is a place where young people can find light which comes from God’s word. It is “His place” so everything that is taught and every question that is answered is answered from His word. God is our Creator and He has an awesome plan for our lives. His word is a light unto our path and a lamp unto our feet (Psalms 119:105). Without His words, which give light, we stumble around in the darkness and bump into things that hurt us. Many times when we experience pain we then find questions in our hearts, “How can I stop feeling this way?” or “What can I do to prevent this pain from happening again?” These are good questions and SNCTRY is designed to answer them with light. This is the way to life!
John 8:12 (CEV)
Once again Jesus spoke to the people. This time he said, “I am the light for the world! Follow me, and you won’t be walking in the dark. You will have the light that gives life.”
SNCTRY is a place where young people can find PURE life in a world that is constantly giving death, fear, insecurity, doubt, shame, guilt etc.
SNCTRY offers everything that is opposite to this: faith, confidence, trust, honour and innocence. This is all part of the splendour and majesty that is found in His presence (1 Chron 16:27), which is what we in SNCTRY seek. His presence is love!
1 John 4:7-8 (TLB)
Dear friends, let us practice loving each other, for love comes from God and those who are loving and kind show that they are the children of God, and that they are getting to know him better. But if a person isn’t loving and kind, it shows that he doesn’t know God—for God is love.
SNCTRY is a place where young people can find love and also find others PRACTICING to love God and one another. Does this mean we get it right all the time? HELL NO! We are all still figuring this whole “love thing” out! The difference is, we are all practicing together and helping each other learn how to love.
Loving people is one of the greatest challenges of this life and yet it is the sweetest thing and the greatest privilege we have been given. If this sounds strange to you then you are probably asking, “How can this be?” That is a good question and SNCTRY is a place where young people can find the answer. The answer is Jesus Christ.
