“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” – 1 John 2:15

There are few things more powerful than witnessing someone throw all of themselves after a cause or a commitment. When we as people get behind something with all our energy and focus, it’s remarkable what we can do.

The opposite is true as well. So often we see the broken results of someone giving only a portion of their focus and energy to something – a cause, a task, a relationship. Half-hearted commitment is really no commitment at all.

This is especially true when it comes to our faith. The Bible is clear: God expects and deserves our undivided affection and commitment. Anything less falls short of who we are called to be as Christ-followers. You’ve seen the power of an undivided devotion to God. Don’t you want to see this kind of faith in your life?

This year’s Fall Youth Retreat will include games, worship, deep small group Bible studies, engaging large group messages, free GraceLife Students swag, lots of fun with the GraceLife Students family, and challenge you to pursue Christ with a single-minded devotion, discovering that the only love worth giving God is an undivided one…
