We all know of occasions when God intervened in the lives of Biblical individuals. God wrestled with Jacob, sent a dove to declare Jesus was the son of God and confronted Paul on the road to Damascus. God also confronted the whole world with the flood so that Noah and his family were the only human survivors.
Here is your question. It has two parts. There are many challenges in the world today. If God were to intervene right now, what challenge would he prioritize to address? Give at least two reasons for your choice.
Part two is this. God often works through humans to bring about His will. There are countless examples in the Bible, particularly in the Old Testament. God will work through young people today to confront and overcome the challenges facing the world. Take the challenge you have chosen and explain what young people can do to bring about God's will?
God would assist people to discover a cure to all diseases. This is most important because it affects everyone in all places. Cures will help not only the diseased but those who care for them and love them.
Youth group members could raise money for hospitals or other medical programs. They also find a way to reach out and volunteer.
God should intervene with the relationships between members of the human race. With this intervention manmade disagreements that lead to war would be abolished. In addition problems with hungar and poverty could be worked out and, if not destoyed, will become less in severity. Global problems like global warming can also be helped through the unified will of man.
Youth members could extend the meaningful things we do in Youth Group to other groups, moreso than already, with groups that are local and that are distant. Perhaps meet with youth leaders from other churches and to communicatre at a distance via video chat. Placing the Prayer Walk on webcam would share this important experience we have with others.
Very perceptive ! We all need to remember that we are God's children , that we have more in common with each other than we think, in spite of outward appearance or differences in religious affiliation. Happy thanksgiving , Merry Christmas , Happy Hannukah , and any other Holiday of faith that occurs at this time of year .
Disease is the most important thing for God to confront first. We feel God would cure all people because there is too much suffering in the world. It hurts to be suffering and it hurts to watch people suffer.
Youth can raise money for hospitals and others who confront diseases. We can also make condoms available for those who cannot afford them. Condoms protect people from disease and are particularly needed in some thired world countries.
I feel God can intervene is the situations of Moral Decay that is leading leaders and other people to forget about their subordinates. God needs to intervene in such situations where human beings have failed to behave spiritually Upright like here in Uganda many people are resorting to Child sacrifice as away of getting rich quick which is a clear indication of high moral decay and selfish thinking.
God's intervention can help these such people to revisit their acts and ask for forgiveness which can transform them totally.
The Bible clearly tells us how we should conduct ourselves before others and God as wells.
2 Timothy 3:16,17 -- The Scriptures instruct us in righteousness, providing us to every good work. Yet we must apply the word properly, study diligently, and pray for wisdom (2 Timothy 2:15; James 1:5-7). We must learn to discern good and evil (Hebrews 5:14).
Again The Bible contains many lists of sins to be avoided -- Mark 7:20-23; Romans 1:26-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Gal. 5:19-21; Eph. 4:17-5:21; Col. 3:5-11; 2 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 3:3; James 3:13-4:10; 1 Peter 4:1-4; Revelation 21:8; 22:15. In addition, other passages discuss individual sins. These prohibitions should be studied and obeyed.
May the love of the Holy Spirit and Sakvation keep with us always.
