Uplift Ready

Are you Uplift ready?!!

If you have no idea what I’m talking about then you have not spent much time with our 2017 senior class. I was first asked the question on the Sunday we left for Maywood Camp. Marshall Dyer, with Iphone in hand was the one who asked.

It seems the question began with Dimitri Sims while the teens were at Uplift at Harding. It has since taken on a life of its own.

This question has become almost a banner for this year’s graduates and those who are a part of this year’s youth group. I hope it stays with them for the rest of their lives.

I would, however, like to offer a focus for the question. It comes from the Apostle Paul.

I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 3:14 NAU)

Are you uplift ready? Are you ready to be lifted to the upward call of God in Christ Jesus?

I hope the class of 2017 keeps that question constantly on their minds and the minds of those around them. I hope they use it to remind themselves and all of us to be uplift ready. To be ready to press on toward the goal of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Are you uplift ready?!!
